COLUMBUS — Ohio State knew it was only going to be able to keep Kevin Wilson around for so long.
The former Indiana head coach and Buckeyes offensive coordinator finally got another chance to run a program on Monday, accepting the head job at Tulsa. Cayden McFarland was first to report the news before Tulsa made the hiring of Wilson official.
But what does that news — of the Buckeyes losing their offensive coordinator — mean for Ohio State? Who are the candidates to replace him? That short list might start with considering a promotion for offensive line coach and offensive associate head coach Justin Frye or wide receivers coach and passing-game coordinator Brian Hartline. Both could be considered, which would create a domino effect that could have the Buckeyes finding another offensive assistant coach — or also promoting to fill the other void with Keenan Bailey.
How will Ryan Day handle this? And will Kevin Wilson stick around to try winning a national title with Ohio State? The Lettermen Row crew of Spencer Holbrook and Tim May break it all down.
