Ohio State is reportedly set to hire Ryan Day as its new quarterbacks coach/co-offensive coordinator, according to Fox Sports’ Bruce Feldman. Tim Beck, the previous QB coach, reportedly left Ohio State’s staff for a role on Tom Herman’s at Texas.

It appears that the Buckeyes have filled Beck’s vacancies quickly, as it was reported former Indiana head coach Kevin Wilson would be hired as Ohio State’s offensive coordinator.
Day has ties to Urban Meyer, as he worked as a graduate assistant at Florida in 2005. Day most recently worked in the NFL as a quarterbacks coach on Chip Kelly’s offense in Philadelphia (2015) and San Francisco (2016). Kelly was fired by the 49ers earlier this week.
Day also has plenty of college experience. He coached wide receivers at Boston College from 2007-2011, served as Temple’s offensive coordinator in 2012 and returned to be Boston College’s OC in 2013 and 2014.
