Ohio State made a key signing, though not in the way of recruits. The Buckeyes just recently hired Taver Johnson as an assistant coach. The name might sound familiar, as Johnson is a 23-year veteran in the coaching ranks and previously had a stint with Ohio State as the cornerbacks coach from 2007 to 2011. Johnson left the program after the 2011 season and headed to Arkansas. But now he’s returned under Urban Meyer and will again be coaching the cornerbacks to replace the loss of Kerry Coombs.
The Buckeyes’ secondary has been phenomenal under Coombs, and Johnson will look to replicate that success.
