Report: Ohio State co-offensive coordinator leaving for Texas

After getting shut out by Clemson in the Fiesta Bowl, Urban Meyer left the door open for changes to his offensive staff.

It appeared Meyer knew what was coming when he said that.

According to a report from Horns Digest, Texas is expected to hire Ohio State offensive coordinator Tim Beck to the same position.

The deal reportedly would involve Beck running Tom Herman’s offense and coaching the quarterbacks. He would be the lone coordinator and have the opportunity to call plays and run the offense in practice.

At Ohio State, Beck served as the Buckeye co-offensive coordinator with Ed Warinner for two seasons. Ironically enough, Beck came to Ohio State to replace Herman after he left to coach Houston. Herman reportedly considered Beck to run his offense at Houston, but Beck went to Columbus.

The Buckeye passing game regressed under Beck’s tutelage. Ohio State finished 12th in the B1G in passing in 2016 and struggled to throw the ball against quality defenses.

Ohio State has yet to confirm Horns Digest’s report.
