Sources are confirming FootballScoop.com's Thursday afternoon report that Urban Meyer has hired Iowa State offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Tom Herman. Herman is expected to replace Nick Siciliano as the quarterbacks coach at Ohio State.

CBSSports.com, on Herman:

Herman is relatively young (36 years old); he graduated cum laude from California Lutheran in 1997 and has been an assistant coach ever since. He has been Iowa State's offensive coordinator for three years, as he was brought in with Paul Rhoads before the 2009 season. Under Herman, the Iowa State offense has scored 20.5, 23.7, and 23.6 points per game in those three years. Previously, Herman was the offensive coordinator at Rice for two years, and he spent time as an assistant at two other schools in Texas for the six season prior to that. Herman also spent two seasons as a graduate assistant at Texas after graduating from college.
