Buckeyes getting new Offensive Coordinator

Fresh off the beating of the Oregon Ducks last night Ohio State officially lost one of their co-offensive coordinators. The well publicized news that Tom Herman accepted the head coaching job at Houston and after the win last night he was seen wearing a Houston hat while celebrating. Many were wondering who would fill the void left by his departure. While this isn’t officially announced by the school but expected very soon according to different sources. Tim Beck former offensive coordinator from Nebraska will be the man. ESPN’s Joe Schad reported that his source informed him this was the case days ago.

WOWT Channel 6 out of Omaha Nebraska had reported this Sunday night:

A person familiar with the deal tells The Associated Press that former Nebraska offensive coordinator Tim Beck will be hired by Ohio State to replace Tom Herman, who is becoming the head coach at Houston.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal was not to be announced until after Ohio State played Oregon on Monday night in the College Football Playoff national championship game.

Tim Beck will be the Co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. He was will Nebraska since 2008 and had worked with current co-offensive coordinator Ed Warinner at Kansas in 2007

Beck also has strong recruiting ties to the state of Texas which will become even bigger now going against Herman and Charlie Strong the head coach at Texas.
