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.

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.

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.

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.

I wonder if the AHC title is so he doesn't have to report to Mattison.

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.

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.

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.

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

HS

I thought he already had this title. 

HS

I thought the same thing. I thought he's had this title for awhile now. Staff? Anyone?

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!

Go Bucks!

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

HS
BuckeyeDave's picture

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.

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

Go Bucks!

You never fix things that are not broke. Pay the man his money and let him work. Pretty simple really.

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.

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...?

HS

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!

HS
Bratwurstcapitalbuckeye's picture

Does associate head coach put LJ higher on the totem pole than a coordinator, or is it just a title?

Go Bucks!

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!

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?
