Ohio State has a new offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.
After Bill O’Brien left the post three weeks after he was hired for the Boston College head coaching job, the Buckeyes announced the hiring of former UCLA coach Chip Kelly as their next offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.
It’s a fit former Ohio State quarterback C.J. Stroud is impressed by.
“I think Chip is going to be an amazing fit,” Stroud told Yahoo Sports. “He coached coach (Ryan) Day in college, and that’s kind of where coach Day got all of his offensive thoughts from and, of course, put his own twists on that. I’m excited to see what Ohio State does this year.”
When asked about Kelly’s hire, Stroud first credited coach Ryan Day for developing him “into a great quarterback for this league,” along with the work Corey Dennis and Todd Fitch did with him.
Here are some more reactions of Kelly’s Ohio State hire.
Is Ohio State the new 2010 Oregon?
Ohio State is one of the ‘haves’ in college football
Ohio State is finalizing the hire of Chip Kelly as offensive coordinator, and it may be the starkest example yet of how the haves in college football are pulling away from the have-nots.

Chip Kelly makes another move
If I think of it as Chip Kelly becoming the Dave Grohl of coaching and just playing in a different bunch of bands every other year it makes sense

Ohio State fans are excited about Chip Kelly
And UCLA fans feel Chip Kelly is leaving the program in shambles
You’re going to read a lot of narratives about why Chip Kelly is leaving (budget, NIL, etc.) but here’s why:
He created the worst UCLA football tenure in the modern era, recruited from 2018 on like he was at Indiana, and didn’t work very hard. He cratered the job.
