Column: Is Corey Dennis the most underrated coach in the nation?

Who is Corey Dennis? Is he Urban Meyer’s son-in-law who was given a job he didn’t earn through nepotism? Is he’s Ryan Day’s assistant who mans the room but does not have much impact? We all assume that Ryan Day is the real quarterbacks coach, so what does Dennis do? Is he an underrated member of the coaching staff? A budding QB guru and a recruiting juggernaut?

The answer to these questions depends on which fan you ask. There is skepticism that Dennis makes an impact, as head coach Ryan Day gets credit for all things program related but especially in quarterback recruiting — which has seen the Buckeyes land five of the top 30 quarterbacks regardless of class since 2020.
