Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer could be poised to lose two coordinators in one offseason cycle.
While it's looking more and more like the Cincinnati Bearcats will hire OSU co-defensive coordinator Luke Fickell, OSU co-offensive coordinator Ed Warinner might end up coaching the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers.
From Columbus Dispatch beat reporter Tim May:
While waiting to hear what happens at UC vis a vis Luke Fickell, keep hearing Ohio State OC Ed Warinner could be in serious mix at WKU.— Tim May (@TIM_MAYsports) December 9, 2016
WKU has propelled several coach careers in past few decades. Plus, Warinner is from KY. His dad played for Bear Bryant at UK way back when.— Tim May (@TIM_MAYsports) December 9, 2016
The Hilltoppers are searching for a coach after Purdue lured Jeff Brohm away with a $20 million contract last week.
Brohm replaced Bobby Petrino, who replaced Willie Taggart; so May isn't wrong about WKU being a great stepping stone to greener pastures.
