Ohio State OL coach: Ryan Day tabs former IU lineman for key role with Buckeyes
Ryan Day’s offseason overhaul of his coaching staff continues to start the week with Ohio State announcing a new offensive line coach for the Buckeyes.
Last week, news broke that Ohio State was moving on from long-time OL coach Greg Studrawa. It was the latest in a flurry of moves that included the hiring of Jim Knowles as the new DC for Ohio State and a promotion to passing game coordinator for WRs coach Brian Hartline.
Now, Day and the Buckeyes are going with a former assistant of his going back to Day’s time at Boston College. The new OL coach for Ohio State will be Justin Frye who has served as the OL coach at UCLA since 2018. Frye added the additional role of OC of the Bruins prior to the 2019 season.

Frye played collegiately at Indiana before starting his coaching career as a GA with the Hoosiers. Day and Frye first worked alongside one another at Temple in 2012. At that time, Day was the OC and WRs coach while Frye coaching the offensive line.
The two also worked together at Boston College from 2013-14 while Day was the OC and QBs coach before Day’s departure to the NFL. Now, the duo is back together in Columbus.
