Great insight, thanks. I'm of the opinion that recruiting should not be the #1 reason for hiring a position coach. Yes, Zach Smith is an ace recruiter, but his WR corps has struggled the last couple years and certainly hasn't shown any improvement. I'd take someone not as great at recruiting if it meant our WRs would run crisper routes, display better hands and deal with press coverage more effectively.

Well, Meyer also said so with Beck coaching QBS and Everett Withers coaching the defense a few years back, so it's not as if he's infallible when it comes to coaching hires. This one concerns me, I won't lie.

Wait. So a guy who's best QB coaching experience comes from Boston College (not Matt Ryan-version), Philadelphia Eagles in 2015 (they were terrible) and San Francisco 49ers in 2016 (my god were they awful) is who we tap to fix our struggling offense and QB play? I really want to give the guy a shot, but what am I missing here?

Bingo, Eph97. To coach at Ohio State, you must be able to actually coach.

You know what? I don't care anymore. We recruit ridiculous talent - especially at WR or the vaunted H-back position - and then do nothing with it. I'm tired of seeing guys not able to run routes or catch simple passes. I'm ready for an actual, honest to goodness WR coach.
