Impending Assistant Coach Vacancies

Discussion in 'Buckeye Football' started by bukIpower, Dec 9, 2016.

    I figured I'd start a temporary thread where we can discuss what coaches we see leaving and more importantly who we all see (or would like to see) replacing our current time staff once they have departed.

    I think Fickell is an obvious to UC but I'm not so sure if Coombs goes to UC or not so I'll assume he stays.

    I think Schiano stays another year as defensive coordinator and I'd like to see Charlie Strong given a look to coach our backers and he a co coordinator.

    If Warriner were to leave I really hope we give Mark Helfrich a look.

    Joker Phillips is already on the staff. Could handle OC duties and recruit Cincinnati if Coombs were to leave with Fickell.

    Is he a good offensive coach though?

    And on the defensive side of the ball, Brian Knorr is already on the staff. Has experience as a LB coach and DC.

    I don't think we're going to see anything really "splashy" if the guys who are rumored for other jobs actually leave.

    Yes. Phillips ran the offense at UK for all of Andre' Woodson's career (2005-2009). Ran it so well he got the HC gig for three years because of the offense. Woodson could have been a Heisman finalist twice if he'd played anywhere other than Kentucky.

    Joker didn't come to OSU to be a QC assistant until he retires.

    I guess I just have concerns about a guy who hasn't been able to hold a job for more than a year since getting fired from Kentucky, and in the year he was at Florida he got them in trouble with the NCAA

    Joker's a bright offensive mind. Would love to see Urban go out and find another up-and-comer like Herman to share the duties with him.

    Schiano's rumored to be in the running at USF. I know it's been mentioned a million times, but wonder if Charlie Strong would be interested in a year or two with Urban again before moving back to a HC gig?

    Rumor is that Strong will be the guy at USF.

    Ohio State had interviews scheduled tonight at 6. We just received word interviews have been cancelled. Interesting.

    Bucknuts mentions two potential names if Warriner moves on to be a HC:

    Mike Sanford, Jr. (ND)- I'd love this. Bright young offensive mind. Good play caller, good QB developer (ahem).

    Kevin Wilson (former IU HC)- Obviously would take some digging to ensure there's no spooky skeletons in his closet at IU, but he's a brilliant offensive mind and play caller. IU always had some of the B1G's more innovative offenses under his regime and he had a helluva run at Oklahoma as OC from 2006-10.

    Assuming Wilson checks out, either would be a great addition, IMO.

    Abenaki Ohio against the world.

    Wasn't Sanford a target of Urban's previously? After Herman left, maybe?

    Wilson would be a fantastic hire, depending on the skeletons from the IU fall out.

    I think he was a target after Herman left, but turned it down when he wasn't going to be given play calling duties. Would think that would change now.
