    Since Urban Meyer hired him in 2014, Ohio State assistant coach Larry Johnson has developed countless defensive linemen into dominant college players and high-level NFL draft picks.

    He doesn’t anticipate coaching anywhere other than Ohio State next season when Ryan Day takes over as head coach.

    “I want to be, I'm going to be an Ohio State Buckeye coach,” Johnson said on Sunday. “I know that. I think that's my future. But you know, in college football, thing changes no matter what happens. I have no plans to go anywhere. This is what I want to do. This is where I want to do it at. I'll leave it at that until after Tuesday and we play the Rose Bowl.”

    In early October, prior to Meyer announcing his retirement, Johnson refuted rumors of his retirement. Speaking in an interview with BTN’s The Journey, the 66-year-old assistant coach said, “I’m not going anywhere.”

    “I’m in great health, I absolutely enjoy what I do, and I have great passion for the game,” he said at the time.

    Under Johnson, Ohio State’s defensive line has thrived.

    Bestbuck36 It's a brand new Day!!

    I definitely want this to be true for at least 5 more years. Although, another coached just said "I plan on coaching" about 5 times and is now retiring. :paranoid:

    What's the difference between "Assistant Head Coach" (which he was under Meyer) and "Associate Head Coach" (which he will be under Day)?

    Ans: Probably a couple hundred thousand dollars more per year.

    Just sayin': Schiano was the Associate Head Coach under Meyer and when Meyer was suspended Day became the "acting" Head Coach not Schiano (which may have not sat too well with Schiano).

    Keeping Larry Johnson Was Important For Ryan Day


    It didn’t take much critical thinking to look at Ohio State’s defense last season and know that changes to the coaching staff would be coming under Ryan Day.

    Safeties coach Alex Grinch departed for Oklahoma. Defensive coordinator Greg Schiano left for the NFL, as did linebackers coach Bill Davis, and cornerbacks coach Taver Johnson was not retained.

    The last man standing on defense was defensive line coach Larry Johnson. Johnson was never expected to be let go, but there were some rumors that he could choose to move on. Instead, he stuck with Ohio State, which was very significant for Day.

    “Very, very important,” Day said. “Larry has been great for me. He was great for me in the summer. He’s been great for me the last couple months.”

    There isn’t much that Johnson hasn’t seen. He’s gone through coaching changes and been on the staff of great head coaches. The entire team respects him and responds to him, which has made him a valuable resource for Ryan Day.

    Johnson is viewed as one of the best defensive line coaches in the nation by those in the know. Some would even tab him as the best. Of course, that didn’t stop Day from going out and hiring Greg Mattison, whose name would also be found at the top of most of the “best” lists.

    And Mattison feels the same way about Johnson that Day does.

    “I have the utmost respect for Larry Johnson,” Mattison said. “Recruiting against him. Whenever you play in a league together, you always get a chance to see the other team’s defensive line. And I would always watch their defensive line and watch his coaching.

    “All you’ve got to do is look what he’s done with guys and where they’ve gone to the next level. If anybody — I mean, anybody that’s ever watched, they know this guy is a great D-line coach.”
