The moves Ryan Day had to make Ohio State gets coaching overhaul by hiring co-defensive coordinators

Washington joins Greg Mattison on the staff. Mattison coached defensive line at U-M and was given co-defensive coordinator duties at OSU.

According to multiple reports including Rivals' Buckeye Grove, Schiano will not be back for the 2019 season with the Buckeyes.

A day after Michigan's defensive line coach, Greg Mattison, left the Wolverines for a job at Ohio State, another of Jim Harbaugh's assistants is set to leave for the Buckeyes.

Urban Meyer told the same story every November about listening to the Ohio State vs. MI game over the loudspeakers at an outdoor shopping mall near Ashtabula when he was a child, and his mother dragged him reluctantly out of the house on the day of The Game.

Brian Flores is a hot head-coaching candidate, and the New England Patriots don't have an obvious internal replacement for their de facto defensive coordinator if he opts to leave town.

Hafley was one of the worst position coaches on the team.

2nd U of M coach heads to Columbus. But as a very vocal segment of Tennessee fans voiced their displeasure with Schiano - some for dubious reasons - the deal was called off and Tennessee ended up going with Jeremy Pruitt after a tumultuous search.

Since then, MI has lost to Ohio State and Florida by a combined 49 points, fallen to No. 14 in the final AP poll, lost two coaches to its archrival and seen Rashan Gary, Devin Bush, David Long and Zach Gentry declare early for the National Football League draft. Greg is a terrific coach.

The 34-year-old Washington is a Columbus native whose father played linebacker for the Buckeyes. Though Ohio State fans would gladly remind you that the Buckeyes put up 62 points in a 23-point win in November.
