The restaurant chain, headquartered in Ohio, had only announced the partnership that named Meyer “Head Breakfast Coach” on Monday.
Meyer was scheduled to appear in TV, radio and digital ads.
I’m excited to announce my partnership with @BobEvansFarms to help raise the bar on breakfast, with all proceeds going to the Urban Meyer Family Foundation supporting multiple charitable organizations. Bob Evans guests can expect our A-game for every meal. https://t.co/QPIYzfnl8O

This is the beginning of the end for Urban. Hopefully he saved some money because there won’t be any more Bob Evans money coming in.
