Report: Kevin Wilson To Join Ohio State Staff As Offensive Coordinator

In a busy day at Ohio State, Kevin Wilson will reportedly join Urban Meyer's staff as offensive coordinator

Ohio State has reportedly made yet another coaching hire, just days after dropping a 31-0 contest to Clemson in the Fiesta Bowl. 

After co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Tim Beck left for a coordinator job at Texas, Urban Meyer replaced him with Ryan Day, an NFL assistant, to coach the Buckeye signal callers just hours later. 

To cap it all off, Ohio State is set to hire former Indiana head coach Kevin Wilson as its offensive coordinator according to Fox Sports reporter Bruce Feldman.

Wilson led the Hoosiers from 2011-16 and resigned after the 2016 season following what the Indiana administration called "philosophical differences." During his time at Indiana, Wilson led the Hoosiers to a 26-47 record but also led his team to back-to-back bowl appearances. Prior to his time in Bloomington, Ind., Wilson was the offensive coordinator at Oklahoma under head coach Bob Stoops from 2006-10. 

Wilson has been known for his ability to produce a high flying offense, both on the ground and through the air. From 2012-2016, Indiana’s offense ranked in the top-five in the Big Ten, finishing first in total offense in 2015.
