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.

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.

... 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.
