    I could also see it as a middle step with the Beck situation.
    Get an OLine guy so Warriner can stay in the booth... and whenever Beck does leave, he can slide over to QB coach and bring Hinton back?

    I'm Also wondering where Stud's recruiting area will be. I read somewhere that he had ties to Western PA, MD and northern parts of OH. But not sure

    Let's make one thing clear: Urban Meyer wants nothing more than to put himself and Ohio State in the best situation to win football games. He often preaches about the culture he and his staff have established in Columbus in just four short years, a timeframe that's yielded 50 checks in the win column against only four losses.

    The Ohio State fanbase can't fathom when the Buckeyes lose games. Truth is, Meyer can't either.

    That's the expectation to which Meyer holds himself. In order to ensure that stays in place, he surrounds himself with the best coaching talent he can find . There's a reason so many of his assistants have left after studying under him to become head coaches elsewhere. It's also why Meyer named former LSU offensive coordinator and Maryland offensive line coach Greg Studrawa to his staff Friday morning.

    Studrawa is set to replace Ed Warinner as offensive line coach of the Buckeyes ahead of the 2016 season, while Ohio State's current offensive coordinator takes over for Tim Hinton as tight ends and fullbacks coach. Hinton will move into the senior level executive director for football relations/special assistant position, an administrative role only he knows if he is happy with.

    It is a step back for Hinton, but he agreed to it after a conversation with Meyer, the boss. Whatever Meyer said it worked, and he offered praise for Hinton in the press release the program sent out Friday announcing the transitions.

    "Tim is an excellent coach and an outstanding person who I have a tremendous amount of respect for," Meyer said. "I am grateful for everything he has done for us, and I see his value to this program even increasing as he becomes more of a resource and mentor for our current and future student-athletes. Plus, he’ll provide a needed strategy and analysis roll with the offensive coaches."

    That might certainly be true, but the overarching reason for the shift in coaching personnel is because Meyer knows he must keep Warinner in the booth alongside quarterbacks coach Tim Beck in 2016.

    "Our offense was as good as it was all year with coach Warinner and coach Beck together in the box," Meyer said. "So keeping those two in place during games is something I think our offense will benefit from as we move forward."

    The Buckeyes' offense shredded Michigan's top-10 defense as well as Notre Dame for 86 points in the final two games of the 2015 season, putting together its finest performances with Warinner being the final voice in the play calling tier. The group was efficient and explosive, just like the college football world expected it to be all season. It took too long for Meyer to get it figured out and resulted in Ohio State's lone loss of the year, a 17-14 decision at home to Michigan State Nov. 21.

    "I think the performance of Coach Warinner was outstanding upstairs. So was Tim Beck," Meyer said Jan. 7. "Those are two, I know the Team Up North was a top-10 defense. I think (Notre Dame is) close. That was outstanding football."

    That same day, Meyer said he didn't anticipate any further changes to his staff in the offseason. Was he lying? Maybe. Did he have a sudden change of heart and realize something needed to change to keep Warinner with a bird's eye view in 2016? Maybe, but he knew it all along.

    "That's still in the evaluation phase," Meyer said 10 days ago when prompted with a question regarding Warinner's future game location. "I will say this: We are going to change some offense. We are going to be more balanced. That's a commitment I made."

    Ohio State called 40 pass plays against Notre Dame, with J.T. Barrett throwing 31 times (completing 19) for 211 yards, one touchdown and an interception when his arm was hit as he threw. The Buckeyes racked up 496 total yards against the Fighting Irish, and 482 against Michigan. The strong finish made it clear for Meyer what needed to be done: Warinner needed to stay in the seat Tom Herman kept warm for three years before heading to Houston.

    Meyer just didn't make the decision public until Friday, with Studrawa—someone he worked with at Bowling Green and therefore trusts—coming on board to step in for Warinner in molding the big guys up front.

    "I’ve known Greg for a long time, starting with my time at Bowling Green when he was my offensive line coach," Meyer said. "I know how good of a coach he is. There aren’t many people I’d entrust our offensive line to after the job coach Warinner has done, but Greg is one of them and I’m pleased to have him join our staff."

    Unfortunately you are correct. Fostoria has declined a bit over the past 15-20 years. The football program isn't near where it used to be. I drove through town at one point this past summer and was saddened by the whole thing. Time can do some crazy things.

    I do not recall Joe Johnson but I do recall Clayton Moore (and certainly Damon). Good ball players

    For anyone still questioning the hire, just watch the video. Home run hire, IMO.

    Ohio guy, tough, emphasizes competition, relationships/people, continuity with all the coaching staff, family and winning. Oh and adds some humor. Just a dynamic personality.

    That was a winning press conference. Stud.

    Awesome hire, no doubt and tons of energy...but he did inadvertently mention Josh Myers at 4:10 :bonk: Understandable though, Josh could perhaps step in and play next year instead of strap it up for his senior year of high school.

    But you think about adding Stud and Schiano...what an unreal set of home run hires.

    Will the tight ends be coached by Stud?

    This year it becomes official ... TEs are not going to catch a lot of passes?

    We don't even have to wonder if this will be a breakout year for TEs?

    Strassini's records are safe?

    I think making our OC responsible for tight ends will get them involved more if he sees they earn it. Whereas last year he knew the capabilities of the line really well (they could run block but not elite pass blockers) so we ran a lot. Warriner will see that the TEs are elite and try to get them the ball more. Also o line should be better with stud being able to devote 100% focus to it. Offense should be better in general when the OC will have 5 guys to coach up and 2 to get ready to play rather than 15-20 and getting 10 ready to play. I love these moves. (Do we even have any full backs)

    We also ran a lot because well, we had Zeke for one. We also didn't have a set QB until almost mid season, and the O line was asked to do 2 very different things to protect 2 totally different QB styles. Hard to go from Zone read, to semi Pro style and back to Zone read in one season. I think with a defined QB in place, and an OC who has a full off season without the drama of an epic QB battle, and full assortment of elite athletes, the ball we be spread around much better, especially to the TE. I think the OL will be a strength after reading how much was lost(similar to 2014). The young guys hopefully have a hunger that wasn't seen often enough last season

    Call me confused.

    1. When they hired Stud, I kind of thought he would be an "assistant" offensive line coach. But he is talking like he is actually THE line coach. Quite a puzzler
    2. Why would you take the world's best offensive line coach and have him coach just one blocker, instead of coaching 5 people who are going to be blocking?
    3. Why exactly do we have tights ends on the roster when we don't even really use them? By contrast, there are only 4 QBs on the roster and only 8 linebackers
