New Ohio St. Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer (you'll get used to reading it within a couple weeks) has indeed met with former Arizona Wildcats coach Mike Stoops about a position on Ohio State's staff, Stoops confirms to the Oklahoman. Stoops doesn't specify the role, and isn't saying whether he was offered anything, but previous reports pegged him as a co-defensive coordinator.
Post-Jim Tressel interim head coach Luke Fickell is to be retained as the team's defensive coordinator, making for one crowded staff indeed.
Stoops and Clemson Tigers offensive coordinator Chad Morris are the only widely rumored potential candidates for Meyer's first Ohio State staff at this point. If those rumors are to be believed, Meyer's aiming to construct an all-star crew. Do those work?
