New Ohio St. Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer wants to make Columbus a little more Florida Gators-y, looking to add current UF strength coach Mickey Marotti and recruiting coordinator and wide receivers coach Aubrey Hill to his first OSU staff, according to the Columbus Dispatch.
Marotti coached with Meyer in Gainesville, then stuck around as part of Will Muschamp's ranks. The Dispatch notes he and Meyer met at Ohio State in 1987. Scout's Ohio State site reports Marotti is essentially a done deal, for what it's worth.
Hill played for the Gators in the early '90s, returning as a graduate assistant in 1996. After stints elsewhere, he returned this year to the Gators. He'd previously coached on Randy Shannon's Miami Hurricanes staff.
