OSU's Ryan Day on Defensive Effort Under Kerry Coombs: 'It's Not What We Expect'

Ohio State defensive coordinator Kerry Coombs' seat just went from hot to on fire.

Buckeyes coach Ryan Day laid bare to reporters Tuesday his disappointment with the team's defensive effort, shining a bright spotlight on the lack of production from Coombs' unit.

"When you look at the results over the last couple games and then coming off last year, it's not what we expect here," Day told reporters.

Day said he's had conversations with the defensive staff since Saturday's 35-28 loss to Oregon and would not commit to Coombs remaining the defensive play-caller moving forward.
