Ohio Stat Recruits

I've wondered about that staff now as well. Ohio State has arguably the best coaching staff on the country, if not top 5. Their co-offensive coordinators are former head coaches, of their co-defensive coordinators, one is a former HC and the other has been one of the hottest up and coming defensive guys for the last couple years.

Having someone like Meyer allows coaches to check their egos and be a part of something bigger because they know another opportunity will come from it. Much like with Saban at Alabama. But will all of those guys be ok with Day? Does Grinch take the Oklahoma DC gig? Do any of the assistants get plucked from another team? Guys like Larry Johnson and Tony Alford are outstanding position coaches and would be coveted elsewhere.

I think Kevin Wilson stays as OC. Those guys coordinated the 2nd ranked offense in the country together and have similar philosophies. I also expect Schiano to stick around. From what I've heard, Schiano really helped Day during the interim role early this season and he's a guy with a lot of experience to sort of help Day along. Not to mention Day doesn't have a defensive background and Schiano is a respected defensive mind. The Buckeyes had their struggles at times this year, but I think Schiano is a good DC. I wouldn't be surprised if Grinch went somewhere else. If not this year then definitely next year. I can't see he and Schiano sharing duties for long.
Agree they are an experienced staff but sometimes with all the experience egos get in the way. Nebraska has younger maybe less experienced ( few with any big time head coaching experience) staff however under Frost’s leadership they work well together.I am sure there’s going to be some problems with OSU coaching moving forward.

I don’t really get why OSU chose Ryan Day so quickly. I’m hoping he is a Luke Fickell as interim HC disaster when Tressel was let go. I don’t know why Day would keep UM’s staff. The program won’t really be HIS vision until he has his own hires as position and Asst Coaches. I’m just hopeful that the guy is a big failure so OSU gets taken down several pegs.
Should Frank Solich have scrapped Osborne's staff?

I see what you're saying. But i'm sure there will be a couple guys who leave and/or he chooses to replace. Eventually Schiano or Grinch will leave, he'll be filling spots on that staff over the next two years for sure.

I think what people are referring too is what I used to call the Corporal affect. When I was in the Corps Cpl is the first rank that was considered an NCO. Thus the first rank where you are a leader. When guys would first get promoted there was always a period of time where the guys that were there buddies and equals the day before suddenly had to take orders from you and resented it.

Same thing happens in business, same thing in coaching. People are people and deep inside they all say, "what makes him so special". Now over time they either prove they deserved it or they prove that no one will respect them.

Would be nice. It will take a few years for a big dropoff though, if it happens at all. Maybe they will at least come back to the pack somewhat.
