Love that gif.Never gets old!
Enjoy the wins over *ichigan, ....I still remember the dark days of the 1990's....
Barf ur a damn genius
Ugh, Ryan Day goes right in line with CIA which would have been the winning caption but wouldn't make sense
If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special.
Love it as well. Was worried he might bolt a la Warriner because he wanted a better title/money, even though he's clearly a phenomenal D-line coach and needs to keep doing that. Now he gets both and STAYS. Brilliant move.
Best GIF I've seen in a while. Those arms kind of threw me off at first because they kind of look like mine. Weird.

BOOM! Best news of the day.
Great to read this.....and uh.....nice to be able to read this. /s
Beefing up the server anytime soon, boys and girls? Inquiring minds....you know.
They should just close the forum for a while so we don't get post after post of people telling us front page news...
Just imagine what would have happened if there hadn't been good LJ news mixed in today? The smoke from the melting 11W servers would have been visible out here on the coast. Kind of like our last two summers, now that I think of it.

Larry can both recruit and develop young men. All the coaches should have those attributes. Pay him accordingly.

This is hugely important. LJ is a Buckeye legend at this point.
Number 1 rule in life: always beat That Team Up North.
Punk st. can choke on this !
And. skunk. weasels. !
Those clowns over on MGoBlow are trying to make themselves feel better about Mattison coming here by saying LJ will feel disrespected and bail on us in due time thanks to that hire. Well think again douchebags lol.
Biggest announcement of the day!
Make preparations in advance. You never have trouble if you are prepared for it.
Well deserved. Throw that man some money.

Sifu Larry! You don't mess with the Sifu.

Good way to give him a pay raise.
If you continue to think what you always thought, you will continue to get what you always got. #AlumforStaff
So what does this mean is changing for LJ, aside from his paycheck presumably? or is that it?
I noticed the phrase “well earned “ by Coach Day. So yup smart move here.
11W writers today:
That's me hitting refresh
Shandy is not beer
Thank you sweet 8lb 9oz baby Jesus
I wonder if the AHC title is so he doesn't have to report to Mattison.
Yes! Larry Johnson is worth every penny!
No brainer here. I can't really say much about Day's other hires, positive or negative, but only an idiot wouldn't have kept this guy and Ryan Day is no idiot.

Great news...Go Larry Johnson...Go Coach Day...Go Bucks
“A mind needs books like a sword needs a whetstone.” - Tyrion Lannister
My prayer is that LJ is here forever.
Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.
Amen to that brother.
Great News!! I was concern about Larry leaving for Maryland.
BOOM! Well deserved...
You win with people.
LJ leaves when LJ is good and god damn ready
Best news of the day by far to me. I wish I could pick his brain. His leadership skills are legendary.
Why does Ohio keep moving north? Cuz *ichigan sucks!
Hopefully LJ got a big raise !
You can say that again, and again, and again....
“Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.”
That, That, That,
Guess I was a bit literal in my response.
As everyone can see I'm not used to clicking and nothing happening.
Today is one of those days where such sins are forgiven!
Thank you Coach Johnson for staying, Thank you Head Coach Day - for recognizing his earned autonomy!
I would rather be on hand with 10 men then elsewhere with 10,000 - Timur Lenk
Great news! Terrible way to start out the week...I am getting zero work done.
You Got Barbecue Back There!?!?!?!
Very important. Glad to read more good news. LJ should get about 400K more also. Coach Day, you're doing many good things. It is looking very much improved.
What did I miss today? Just logged on. Anything going on?
OSU fired Day,Meyer, Gene Smith and told Tressel he was never here. So no, not much
Larry Johnson Promoted to Ohio State Associate Head Coach, Defensive Line Coach
Congratulations to Coach Johnson! It's a great honor Ryan Day has bequeathed to LJ. All I shall add at this point is to pay the man a salary commensurate with his added responsibilities. Coach Johnson has certainly earned it.
Go Bucks. Into 2019- and Beyond.
Ryan Day clearly had a plan coming into his first week as HC and it's been extremely impressive how efficiently he's executed it so far.
'97 - Molecular Genetics
We've retained LJ. All is right with the world.
That a boy!
In the poll era (since 1936), OSU is by far the class of the B1G:
National Titles: OSU 8, UM 3
B1G Titles: OSU 33, UM 27
Head-to-head: OSU 42, UM 36
Major Bowls (New Year's Six): OSU 20-14, UM 10-16
I could have sworn LJS was already an associate HC under Meyer ... other than that, great news!
I hope they pay him for back pay. He has been underpaid for years.
Well deserved. No brainer of No brainer promotions. Love it !

OUTSTANDING!!! Larry Johnson has been vital to Ohio State from the second he became a Buckeye! I was hoping that they would give LJ a bunch of $$ and title and that appears to be happening!
The best thing about Pastafarianism? It is not only acceptable, but advisable, to be heavily sauced
I thought he already had this title.
I thought the same thing. I thought he's had this title for awhile now. Staff? Anyone?
He was Assistant Head Coach
Assistant to the Head Coach
Out of all the wonderful defensive coaching changes I discovered today, this is some of the best! LJ definitely deserves this, super happy for him!
Seattle Buckeye, Green Tony
This is awesome news. Respect for Johnson’s talent and integrity will help boost OSU ‘s profile — especially after the McButtfudge debacle.
Deserves got nothin' to do with it
Not the house cleaning that Diaz did to the Offense at Miami...and I am thankful. Needed to keep Johnson coaching the DL. Guessing the Assistant Head Coach puts him above the DC tandem in pecking order.
"Without winners there wouldn't even be any civilization" - WWH.
Easy but Smart move by Day, Johnson is elite, I mean did you see him in those drills at his age lol but seriously he more than deserves this
You never fix things that are not broke. Pay the man his money and let him work. Pretty simple really.
Hey Cancer! This ass kicking is brought to you by the Guernsey county mafia. Give it Hell 84!
The defensive line is consistently the best unit on the team since his arrival.
Very happy with this move. I have a feeling he is a bigger part of the recruiting of D-linemen than he is given credit for. He definitely deserves this.
He has earned this and glad he has gotten the recognition,
AWESOME. I was wondering what Coach Day had in store for him.
Well deserved by coach Johnson. Congrats LJ!
We've all been clamoring that OSU should PAY THIS MAN! So glad he's still here!
"We get paid to score touchdowns, not kick field goals"
-- Urban Meyer
So does "associate head coach" make him #2 man in the hierarchy? I thought that was what an "assistant head coach" was....or are they the same thing...?
BOOM! Coach LJ is one of the true rock stars on our staff and we are blessed that he'll be here again next year. Go Bucks!
Does associate head coach put LJ higher on the totem pole than a coordinator, or is it just a title?
Smart move. I'll be glad to have LJ for as long as he's coaching
Colin you qrotrew:
A few weeks ago, Chase Young, who will likely be a first-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft,
You made me laugh out loud. Chase should easily be a top 10 if not 5 pick next year and you say likely first round pick... You are funny!
What's round on the ends and high in the middle? Tell me if you know!
Whoa! Edit: Colin, you wrote, sorry
So does anyone know what is the difference between Assistant and Associate Head Coach is? What are the different responsibilities, if any?
I just hope he got a monster raise. If anyone deserves it he does.
This is outstanding news!! The players LOVE him, he has a proven track record of developing talent and he has been a great addition to the program. Keep him around until he decides to hang it up. Go Bucks!
What changes will LJ be doing in terms of the new associate head coach? Other than money what will it mean in job responsibilities?
HECK YEA!!! (respectfully mindful LJ does not curse)
