Ohio State moved quickly to fill the void at offensive coordinator after Tim Beck left to fill the same position at Texas under Tom Herman. The Buckeyes will hire former Indiana head coach Kevin Wilson to be their next offensive coordinator, according to SB Nation’s Indiana Hoosiers blog, The Crimson Quarry.

Wilson resigned from his head coaching position at Indiana on Dec. 1, 2016, less than a year removed from signing a six-year, $15.3 million contract extension. Indiana athletic director Fred Glass cited “philosophical differences” between he and Wilson.
In six seasons at Indiana, Wilson was 26-47, including a 12-37 record in Big Ten play, while leading the Hoosiers to a 6-6 record in 2015 and 2016.
Coincidentally, Ohio State’s first game next season is on the road against Indiana on August 31, 2017.
