Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer said Luke Fickell will make the defensive calls in 2012 and have defensive coordinator in his title, although the final details are still being worked out.
Meyer, speaking Tuesday to WBNS radio in Columbus, said Fickell "will have the [coordinator] title. It might be 'co,' it might not, but at the end of the day, he'll be calling the defense."
We all knew he'd be kept on the staff in some capacity, so it looks like he'll still have a pretty good gig. Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised to see him become Meyer's successor down the road. From what I've heard, he's not that bad of a coach, just needs some experience. D-Coordinator is a good place to learn and grow. That said, it will be great to see our offense torch them again like we did this year.
