Jeff Hafley won’t be the only assistant coach Ryan Day will have to replace this offseason.
Quarterbacks coach Mike Yurcich will leave Ohio State to take the offensive coordinator job at Texas, according to reports Sunday.
Yurcich took over the post from Day at Ohio State a season ago, when Day was promoted from quarterbacks coach to head coach following the 2018 season.
Prior to Ohio State, Yurcich was the offensive coordinator at Oklahoma State from 2013 to ‘18.
Under Yurcich, sophomore quarterback Justin Fields was a Heisman Trophy finalist, and threw 41 touchdowns and 3,273 passing yards this season.
Ohio State’s season, and Yurcich’s Buckeye tenure, came to a close Saturday following a 29-23 loss to Clemson in the College Football Playoff semifinal at the Fiesta Bowl.
Four-star quarterback prospects Jack Miller and C.J. Stroud signed with Ohio State for its 2020 recruiting class.
