Buckeye wide receivers coach and assistant head coach Darrell Hazell was just introduced as the 20th head coach at Kent State. Ohio State released the following statement on behalf of Jim Tressel:
“I’m so excited for Darrell Hazell as he takes over as the head coach at Kent State. He has certainly been a difference-maker at Ohio State. The Golden Flashes are starting a golden era led by Darrell Hazell. His Buckeye family wishes him every success.”
While OSU will be losing an integral part of the recruiting machine and a contributor to offensive gameplans, we wish Hazell nothing but the best as he becomes the latest member of the Tressel tree to take a head coach position.
