COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio State offensive coordinator Ed Warinner has heard his name connected to the open head coaching position at Purdue. He also doesn’t care.
“That stuff comes up, and the only way I find out about it is if somebody texts me or somebody brings it up,” Warinner said after Wednesday’s practice. “Otherwise, I’m just grinding. We’re trying to get this football team better. We’re trying to get this football team ready for a tough road win. It’s going to be tough to do. I focus on that.
“Those things take care of themselves. Those are all things that happen, and I don’t have to get involved in any of that stuff. There are ways that’ll happen, and you just stay out of it and take care of your job. The better you do your job, the better things happen for you all around.”
Thus far, Warinner is certainly taking care of business in his current role. The Buckeyes are No. 4 nationally in scoring offense and rushing offense, No. 8 in third-down conversion percentage and No. 12 in total offense.
