OSU is coming off a Big Ten Championship and is gearing up for the Rose Bowl. Looks like hard work is paying off for some of the coaching staff as well. According to Fox 28, former OSU player, Brian Hartline has been elevated to permanent wide receiver’s coach Ryan Day after serving in an interim capacity in the 2018 season.
“Brian is a terrific young coach and mentor to our players and I am thrilled he is on our staff permanently now,” Day, who takes over as Ohio State head coach Jan. 2, said. “Brian was displaying outstanding leadership qualities when he was a quality control coach, and his efforts coaching the wide receivers this season are a huge reason we are Big Ten champions and headed to the Rose Bowl.”
Led by Parris Campbell, Johnnie Dixon, Terry McLaurin, and K.J. Hill, OSU’s receiver unit caught 291 passes for 4,211 yards and 43 touchdowns in 2018, totals that break the school single season marks of receptions, yards and touchdowns.
