It was reported earlier Tuesday that Kevin Wilson will take over as Ohio State’s offensive coordinator in 2017.
There was no official announcement from the Buckeyes, but they did say they parted ways with co-offensive coordinator Tim Beck and hired Ryan Day as quarterbacks coach. It seems like the announcement for Wilson, the former Indiana head coach, is imminent.
If Wilson does join the Buckeyes sideline next season, Ohio State will be in good hands, says one of Wilson’s old players. Shane Wynn, who starred as a wideout for the Hoosiers from 2011-2014 and now plays for the Jaguars, tweeted that the Buckeyes will win the 2017 national championship if Wilson coaches alongside Urban Meyer.
If Kevin Wilson becomes offensive coordinator at Ohio state. They will be 2017 National Champions.

That’s a ringing endorsement that should be great news for Ohio State fans. Under Wilson, Indiana ranked in the top 25 in scoring offense in two of the last four seasons.
Wilson went 26-47 in six seasons with the Hoosiers. He resigned on Dec. 1, and Indiana promoted Tom Allen to head coach.
