I just got word from a trusted source that Marcus Freeman got the linebackers coaching job at Kent State. Freeman played at OSU from 2004-2009 and was part of a great linebacker duo along with James Laurinaitis. Freeman had a tango with the NFL as part of the Bills and texans, but had to retire prematurely due to an irregular heart beat. Freeman returned to Ohio State upon retiring to finish up his Master's Degree in Sport Management. During that time (last spring to this fall) he served as the defensive quality control coach for OSU and has done a great job for Jim Tressel this season. Freeman was offered a position on Darell Hazell's staff and accepted it earlier today.

Best of luck to Freeman on his first full-time coaching position at the division 1 level. Who knows, maybe one day he'll be back in Columbus as linebackers coach, defensive coordinator, or maybe even head coach one day? You never know, but what we do know is that the OSU coaching tree continues to branch out further every year.
