Urban Meyer's Ohio State Staff Adds Tom Herman, Quarterbacks Coach

The Ohio St. Buckeyes coaching staff is starting to come together under Urban Meyer. According to reports from FootballScoop.com and CBS Sports, Iowa St. Cyclones offensive coordinator Tom Herman will be named the next Buckeyes quarterbacks coach.

Under Herman, Iowa State ranked No. 56, No. 99, and No. 73 in total offense over the past three years, though Herman's 2008 Rice offense ranked No. 10 in the country. That's also more or less par for the course in Ames, so let's not judge too harshly.

Meyer may retain certain members of the current staff beyond defensive coordinator Luke Fickell, such as linebackers coach Mike Vrabel. He's also reportedly looking to pick off from Florida's staff, having already grabbed strength coach Mickey Marotti.
