Urban Meyer promotes Ryan Day to offensive coordinator


Second-year quarterbacks coach Ryan Day has been promoted to offensive coordinator by head coach Urban Meyer.

Day, who also was co-offensive coordinator this past season, will continue to work with the quarterbacks and Kevin Wilson to lead the offense.

“Ryan is clearly a very talented coach who has been an outstanding addition to our program,” Meyer said. “He has been approached by other schools numerous times this off-season for coordinator and head coach opportunities, and by the National Football League for a coordinator opportunity. I am pleased that he has elected to continue to work on this staff and to lead, mentor and coach the terrific young men we have in this program.”

In his first season, alongside Wilson, Day helped the Buckeyes lead the Big Ten in rushing yards per game, passing yards, total offense and scoring.

“Ohio State is an outstanding place to be a coach, and Columbus is a great city for a young family,” Day said. “I really enjoyed my first season with this program and I’m looking forward to the 2018 season and the opportunity to coach a very talented and hungry group of players.”
