Welcome to Buckeye Nation, Coach Hafley.
Fields of Dreams
Looks like imagine dragons member..
Ouch.................let's hope he doesn't coach on the the level of their music........................
I hope he DOES. Imagine Dragons are great!

Really hoping this is the homerun hire. Everyone is counting on you. And when I mean everyone? I mean

Well I look forward to the changes.. Interesting to see where Day goes for LB coach..
"To The House"
My guess is it will be Greg Mattison. LJSR will be the DL coach, but Mattison will oversee how the front 7 work together. Hafley will manage the entire secondary, though he might hire another position coach for the cornerbacks.

Sooo who gets the last coaching spot ?
Newcomerstown Trojans. Between Woody and Beaver.
Waiting for results.. but a lot of love and rave. Richard Sherman’s quote is a big one for me. A guy like that says that about our DC I’m happy
The Future is Bright at Ohio State
Exactly. I don't think Sherman would say anything about this guy (or anything, for that matter) unless he means it. I've got a good feeling about the hire, but the proof will be in the pudding.
Right...people on here were raving when Urban hired Billy Davis too
No we werent.... lmao literally people were confused because we had zero background & zero recommendation from former players , Bill was hired because he is a family friend of the Meyer’s but This hire was based on his qualifications and actual prior WORKING relationship with Day
Same with the Beck hire. I remember everyone being confused about the hire too. He bombed at Nebraska then bam he's at OSU. Didn't make any sense.
"Woody is a God-fearing man. It's good to know that he's afraid of somebody."
Love the hire

Go get'em Cal Poppy - we are behind you !!
It's not a rivalry .............. it's a wreckoning.
Read that as 'deserves a double bourbon.'
Don't mind if I do.

Good call IBB - you're living the high life on the islands
Actually more of a single malt guy, Linga. But a good bourbon will absolutely do in a pinch.
Hope the left coast is treating you well, and that you're enjoying the 'Bama beat-down.
Seems like we are hiring tiers of coaches , I’m in wait and see mode
"Vitalum Vitalis "
My guess is Mattison will be more of the guy calling the plays...just a hunch since I haven't heard that Mattison has a positions group he is solely responsible for coaching up...unless I am missing something.

Like the sentiment, but I also like these colors much better...
Welcome, Coach Hafley. Looking forward to his contribution to the Silver Bullets.
Looks like we have an NFL caliber coach but the questions are, can he recruit and develop talent? We shall see what happens in 2020.
BigBuckeye says Go Bucks
If you read the article it appears that player development is there. And he was a good recruiter back in the day at Rutgers.
I tend to trust my eyes with what I see and less on what I read. I have no opinion on this guy.
If what I hear about him being a good recruiter and a good coach pan out than it is a great hire. They need some corners and safeties in the 2020 class.
Shoutout to that ALBANY on his resume. My neck of the woods.
Home run. Love the defensive staff so far.
Read my entire screen name....
I'll wait and see.
"Mattison's experience is largely with the defensive line," does this mean that LJ may be....a word that none shall dare utter. The horror.
No.... Mattinson is far older than Johnson so that belief is a no
He's only 3 years older than Coach Johnson.............DL meeting room will look like the Soviet Politburo back in the day..............
But does he drink Red Bull?
Nothing cleanses the soul like a no call pass interference.
Welcome to Coach Hafley.
Got M...igan gossip? Bang it here.
The more these hires sink in the more I like them.
Love this hire. OSU is an (quality) NFL factory. Love bringing NFL experience to the team. They can tell the kids exactly what they’re looking for on the next level.
Round on the ends and "HI" in the middle. O-HI-O.

My mom always says, "it'll all come out in the wash." Let's hope this is another great piece added to the 2019 season.
Da juice ain’t worth the squeeze
49ers had #11 pass defense in NFL this year. Pretty good. That’s not just the secondary, but good news. (btw Titans were #6). Appears he’s recruited well before. Just hope he didn’t forget how to develop players after what six years in the NFL.
Def not a Bill Davis. He didn’t have to spend a year as a QC guy on his buddy’s staff.
“I intend to make Georgia howl.” General William Tecumseh Sherman
Now we need an outstanding LB Coach. Shazier, Freeman, Laurinitis?
I don't need to recognize him or see his resume. Is he going to train the DBs to turn and play the ball like every other corner to ever play?! Please
It's not if you win or lose, but how you place the blame.
wasn't Grinch supposed to be the home run hire ...the DC in waiting when Shiano left......hehe haha ....
I could have sworn I saw this guy in Fargo a while back. Think his name was Gaear Grimsrud..............
