COLUMBUS (WCMH) – With Urban Meyer’s three-game suspension, interim head coach Ryan Day finds himself in the hot seat through the middle of September.
Former Ohio State Assistant Coach Bill Conley told NBC4’s Jerod Smalley about the unique situation coach Day now finds himself in.
“Ryan Day really has handled this thing, in terms of being an interim coach, he’s done really well and gained the respect of a lot of people around the nation,” said Coach Conley.
Day joined the Ohio State coaching staff before the 2017 season as the quarterbacks coach and during this offseason Day was promoted to co-Offensive Coordinator. He was coveted for several college head coaching and several NFL assistant coaching jobs but elected to stay at OSU.
Now, he will coach the team at home on September 1 and September 8 against Oregon State and Rutgers and at TCU on September 15.
Day’s other coaching stops include Boston College, Philadelphia Eagles, San Francisco 49ers, Temple and New Hampshire. Through all of those coaching jobs, he has never been a head coach.
