Grading Ohio State football’s offensive assistant coaches and ranking their level of importance: Buckeye Talk


COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ryan Day hasn’t had to make any significant changes to the offensive coaching staff as Ohio State football’s head coach.

In his first year, his only addition was replacing himself with Mike Yurcich as the quarterbacks coach; then when Yurcich — who’s now at Penn State — left for Texas, he promoted Corey Dennis to the role. Besides elevating wide receivers coach Brian Hartline from an interim role to a permanent position there’s hasn’t been much movement.

The result is one of the best offenses in the country that’s averaged north of 40 points the last two years while being among the leaders in total offensive yards per game. The Buckeyes’ explosive approach has paid off on the recruiting trail in the form of a two-quarterback class, five-star quarterbacks, the No. 1 wide receiver in the country in three-straight cycles and a bevy of other five-star and top-100 talents.
