Chimdi Chekwa Says Taver Johnson Will Bring Energy And Ability To Mentor Young Players In Return To Ohio State As Cornerbacks Coach

Ohio State might have lost the most energetic member of its coaching staff when cornerbacks coach Kerry Coombs decided to leave the Buckeyes for the Tennessee Titans last month.

Former Ohio State cornerback Chimdi Chekwa, however, says Ohio State’s new cornerbacks coach will provide no shortage of energy of his own.

Chekwa, who played for the Buckeyes during Taver Johnson’s first stint as Ohio State’s cornerbacks coach, said Johnson’s energy was the biggest thing that stood out in his mind when he recalled what it was like to play for the Buckeyes’ newly re-hired cornerbacks coach on Tuesday.
