What about Gary Pinkel?

Akron native.

Kent State grad.

MAC Champion coach.

Has brought in some serious NFL talent to play at Missouri.

Downside is that he is almost 60, but I never see his name mentioned by the REPLACE FICKELL YESTERDAY folks.

Just think he is an option that would be very solid and capable, and he is a former Offensive Coordinator.

I know that he is not a "sexy" name like Meyer or Gruden, but I am not into "sexy" names.  If Fickell doesn't work out I think Ohio State would be very smart to hire someone with a long track record of success as a head coach.  Pinkel is definitely a proven successful head coach, and in the right situation perhaps a great head coach.
