Ohio State’s coaching staff is complete again, as the Buckeyes are hiring former Nebraska Cornhuskers assistant Tim Beck as well as Ed Warinner as their new OC, in a move that sportsbook software services believe could prove to very beneficial for the team.
The Buckeyes just became national champions by beating the Oregon Ducks in the last meeting of Tom Herman’s career with the team before he takes the role of head coach at Houston, and coach Urban Meyer gave Beck the role of looking over the QB’s, becoming the team’s co-offensive coordinator, and Ed Warinner, who was the offensive line coach, was given the main OC role.
“Ed Warinner is certainly deserving, experienced and well-qualified for the offensive coordinator position,” said Meyer. “I’m pleased to be able to promote from within our program and I believe he is going to be an excellent coordinator for us.
“I have known Tim for several years and have also watched and competed against him. I have always respected his knowledge of the game and he is respected in the profession. I always look for coordinators and co-coordinators who will mesh with our staff, our style and can make us better. I believe Tim will do just that.”
Beck is set to take over a unit that, as it’s built right now, would be a serious force to reckon with in NCAA football, and make for plenty of jealous coaches.
QB Braxton Miller is qualified for a transfer, and QB Cardale Jones, who won all of the three post-season meetings for Ohio State, was mentioned as being a possible candidate to leave for the league early. However, the Buckeyes expect both players to go back to the school’s football program along with J.T. Barrett.
This would mean that Beck would have everything necessary to work with during his first season with Meyer.
“I am extremely excited to be joining the Ohio State coaching staff,” said the new OC. “It’s quite an honor, being an Ohio guy and growing up [in Youngstown] and now having the opportunity to work at The Ohio State University.
“Words can’t explain it. I’m just really excited and I’m looking forward to working with Coach Meyer, and to learn from him and to help the coaches there continue with the successes they have already started.”
Buckeyes fans were very happy to see the team get ready for next season this early in the year, and sportsbooks software services will continue to follow developments on the players and the coaches.
