Oklahoma State offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich is expected to join Ryan Day’s staff at Ohio State for the 2019 season, according to a report.
Prior to Rose Bowl kickoff on Tuesday, ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg reported that Yurcich will become an assistant coach with the Buckeyes, though his status is still to be determined. According to the report, Yurcich will likely coach the quarterbacks at Ohio State, which was the previous duty of Day.
Yurcich was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Oklahoma State from 2013-2018.
