He's the OC/QB coach at Iowa State.
Tom Herman to be Ohio's QB coach
Says he was OC/QB coach at ISU, but will be QB coach at ohio. Rice and ISU on his resume which doesn't seem all that impressive. I assume he has some relationship with Urban or is a rising star or something. Never heard of the guy. Kirk Ferentz is cursing somewhere. Still has to face the guy.
ISU's style of offense kills him. Assume this hurts ISU.
Why would OSU need a QB coach?
limited to setting up the film projector. Never coached QBs, Tressel only hired him because he was a GA at Youngstown.
Good. I did not want Loeffler at OSU.
Have there every been any Michigan alumni who became assistant coaches at OSU? I know we had Moeller, but have any gone the opposite way?
Whew for a sec I thought it said Tom Harmon. I thought he went Boren on us.
Do you see an "O" on Tom Harmon? UMfan21...do you...see an "O"...on Tom Harmon? No! You do not, because Tom Harmon is cool.
Well that's not that scary. Iowa State is like 50th in total offense? In the Big 12, where they don't play defense?
Well, they scored enough points to beat Iowa and Oklahoma.
They're 6-6, 86th in scoring offense, 80th in offensive FEI. They scored an average of 23 points per game. Not exactly world-beaters.
87th in offensive FEI last year. I guess he hasn't had the most talent to work with but it's not like he's done anything that impressive except for the upset of Oklahoma this year.
Oklahoma State to you too.
Yep, you're right. Just a late night at work.
With far less talent than most other Big 12 teams. From the tiny bit I've seen from Herman, it looks to be a decent hire.
They do have big upsets this year to show for. While he's not a known name, he may be a rising star.
He is a rising star. He is only 36 years old and already has experience as an OC. He isnt a big name guy bc he's coached at small schools, but he will be a future head coach.
Luke Fickell will be retained in an "as yet undetermined role".
is joining RR is AZ as co-offensive coordinator.
It's not a big deal, one way or the other. Urbie is the brains behind the offense and I think he said he even intends to call his own plays. And this guy is not even the OC, he is the QBs coach. Unless he is an amazing recruiter, this is not the guy we need to worry about.
A lot of people think Dan Mullen was one of the key cogs of Urban's offense at Utah and Florida.
... but even if that is true, this guy isn't Dan Mullen. I think whoever Urbie hires as his DC and the rest of the defensive staff will be more important than the QB coach. Again, with the caveat about recruiting. Some coaches are literally hired more for their recruiting prowess than their coaching ability, so if this guy is some killer recruiter, that would be significant.
AAAAAAHHHHHMMMMMMM! And just who in the hell cares about who is on Ohio's staff.
no offense meant toward you, GegBlau
Paging Mr.Herman,paging Mr.Herman. You have a telephone call at the front desk.
a big adventure...maybe osu to the Alamo Bowl next year?
Y U NO KIRK HERBSTREIT QB COACH?????
I guess he's okay with accepting a demotion.
Why should we care? Did Ohio fans go "Jerry Montgomery, new UM Dline coach!"
Is this guys a big deal or something?
