Is McMurphy Texas Tom's personal media mouthpiece now?   Hopefully this is just Texas Tom's weak attempt to mess-up our bowl prep and not a real consideration for Yurcich.

HS

Tom was the one who fed him the background on Zach Smith that led to all the shit in 2018. Of course he’s Tom’s mouthpiece now. 

FWIW, his Wiki page had been edited over the past couple weeks to show him as the PSU offensive coordinator for 2020. If anything, maybe he’s due a pay bump. I would think Wilson would go before Yurcich.

To be perfectly blunt, only an idiot would take that job. Herman made it clear by passing on Harrell that he was not giving the keys to his offense away. Yurcich can stay one more year and get the Co-OC job at Ohio State, with much better talent and in his home state.

Andrew Ellis's picture

Regardless of who the source is, I think he's spot on and this information has actually been circulating for a while now. I don't get why anyone would be too up in arms over it really. He doesn't call plays (and never will here) and finding a "passing game coordinator" wouldn't be difficult at all under Day. I've been under the impression that he's more likely to be OC at a place like Texas or Notre Dame than to be back in Columbus next year.

To me it’s more the going to Texas part.

HS
Zonabuck's picture

Is it a fit issue, or what?  Seems like a move from Oklahoma State to Ohio State would’ve been because Day saw a need in the offensive development that Yurcich could fill, that Wilson was ready to move on and he wanted some stability among the offensive coaches, that he needed a QB coach to develop the inexperienced roster, or that Yurcich wanted a stepping stone in Columbus that he couldn’t get in Stillwater. If he leaves for a Texas, it seems none of those would be true. What was the mutual attraction?

HS
Andrew Ellis's picture

I've heard he's not an easy guy to get along with at all. Have also heard that Okie State wasn't going to keep him around if Ohio State hadn't hired him. Somewhat hard to believe given how good their offenses were, but I guess he's a really tough guy to work with. 

northernchild's picture

This makes me feel a little better. Since news of Yurcich to Texas has been out for a bit, is there any word on who a replacement could be?

for best results, read everything i write in italics

HS
Andrew Ellis's picture

Haven't heard anything and I don't think this Yurcich stuff is 100 percent done yet. If it were to happen then I'd think maybe they'd just look for a younger guy who can recruit. The offense is in good hands regardless with Day and Wilson running the show. 

weimerad's picture

If Yurcich isn’t a good fit with Days system, etc, then I guess I’m ok with him moving on and finding someone who can recruit like you said.  The problem, though, is when Wilson leaves after next season because you know he will.  Gonna be a much bigger challenge to replace him 

HS

I wonder if anyone would hire Kevin Wilson as a head coach with the story surrounding his exit from Indiana. Fair or not, player treatment is a bigger deal now than it was years ago. He may need a little more distance from those events.

I'd take all this rumor-mongering with a grain of salt. Multiple OSU fans on this site seem to think Day and Wilson don't get along based on what they've "heard" in the OSU grapevine. And yet why would Day retain Wilson on his staff if that were the case?

HS
ShawneeBuck74's picture

I just want to make sure I'm hearing you correctly... You're saying you've heard Yurcich isn't an easy guy to get along with?  I don't see that fitting with Ryan Day's culture at all. That's what I heard about Grinch, for example, and we saw how Day dumped him rather quickly.  Yurcich is a good offensive mind and I thought did some nice things adding to our offense -- the under center stuff we used occasionally was from OkieSU -- for example. 

I think the recently fired Chad Morris would make for a nice replacement and he'd likely be here for a couple of years to redeem his reputation and get another shot as a head coach.  Also - Matt Canada is a really brilliant mind and creative with motions to confuse the defense.  I wonder if his philosophy would mesh with Days?

Nate4bucks's picture

That’s really surprising to hear. Especially when you consider Coach Day, who seems like he’s so meticulous in everything he does. You’d think he’d assemble a staff that works well together, choosing carefully who would fill out his staff. This is the first I’ve heard that about Yurcich.. When the hire was made last year, it seemed to make sense to bring in a guy with Northeast Ohio roots (Euclid, Oh), but maybe this is a situation where Day is encouraging him to look around. 

HS
BornAndBredABuckeye's picture

Would he have more play calling control in Texas? I thought Herman called the plays there

HS
Andrew Ellis's picture

Beck started off calling the plays from the booth but then Herman took over when that didn't work. Herman has said before that he doesn't like calling plays from the sideline and wants their next OC to fully take over that responsibility. 

Steel City Buckeye's picture

You mean Beck wasn't up to the job, the fact that Mensa Tom saw what he did to OSU offense and hired him anyways was hilarious. The Bucks will have the strongest QB room in the nation the next few years, I am sure Day will find someone as good if not better.

HS
CTBuckeyeFan's picture

Who coaches the QBs?  Yurcich or Day?  Continuity for Fields would be my only concern.  Still not sure why Yurcich would take a step backwards though.

It's a dual effort but mostly Day from what I have been told.

Corey Dennis has been instrumental in coaching the QBs, but he’s off to become part of Addazio’s staff at Colorado State.

Exactly what I was wondering. It’s interesting Dennis was reported as going to CSU, but that hasn’t seemed formally, officially acknowledged/reported. Maybe Day told Dennis, just wait a minute ..... Urban, and esp Shelly, would like that. QB coach/pass game coord at TOSU much better than CSU and the family angle.

andretolstoy's picture

You know a lot of us follow sports practically hourly, every day, especially on Twitter where rumors like this, if they exists, are constant. I haven't seen one example until now that Yuricich is a candidate for Texas.

I don't understand when people say he's actually hard to get along with this is why he's  being ushered out as if all of those coaches aren't arse holes to some extent and don't wear on each other. Heck, the HC huddle and sideline time during the games are probably all they can all stand to be around each other in reality. So this isn't really something we should be using.

It's probably much more prudent not to use this narrative to sort of help ease the uncertainty losing a coach creates.

HS
Zonabuck's picture

If it comes from some random poster, then I’d agree that we should back off until we hear it from a reputable source. But when a connected person says it, I think it’s insightful and worthy of discussion. It doesn’t mean it’s always 100% accurate, but in the case of Yurcich I’ve always wondered why he made the move from Okie State to here.
And if Grundy was going to let him go, and he landed here, that’s not unusual either.  at TTUN was a guy who wasn’t going to get the OC job at Alabama, got a phone call a half hour after learning that and was offered by TTUN. At first, it looked like they stole him. In hindsight, they overpaid for a guy who might not even been ready. There often are backstories - important ones - that we don’t know about until “after”.

3) Profit?

Well if Meyer had lost his job over that recruits would've decommitted from OSU in droves (with Garrett possibly being one of them) and Herman would've been right there ready to poach them since OSU recruits out of Texas a lot. Also ZS was the one who recruited Garrett and Zach and Herman have massive beef with each other that is unrelated to football. Couple that with Herman seeming like the type of guy who holds grudges and I absolutely think he did it. And fuck him for that. I'm no fan of ZS, don't get me wrong but Herman is a lying snake in the grass and always has been.

I mean, that's just like your opinion man, but short of McMurphy saying Herman's wife was the person who alerted him (which is news to me), everything else is just implications and assumptions.

Honestly, this makes some good sense.  I'd also suggest making Brian Hartline a co-coordinator along with Kevin Wilson. Hartline's earned a raise and he's very football smart.

Another option would be Brian's brother Mike -- who played QB for Kentucky and had a cup of coffee in the NFL.  A sharp dude who would make another excellent young recruiter who may stick around for a while. Mike is currently the Offensive Coordinator and Quarterbacks coach at Ohio Dominican University.

True. But he's a lot like his brother. Good leader. Personable...likely a strong recruiter. Relates well to players of today (he's 31).

Even if we don't make him co-OC.... he'd be a fine QB Coach (working with Day).  I mean, Tressel had Nick Siciliano and he was basically an Advocare salesman or something. lol

Oh, please. Don’t give me that weak ass bullshit. Tressel won national championships at FCS YSU. Mike Hartline is the OC at a D-II college that plays against the likes of Ohio Valley University, Kentucky Wesleyan and Tevecca Nazarene University, whatever the heck that is. If you think running an offense that puts up a paltry 329 yards and 28 points per game qualifies him to make the leap to OC for Ohio State, I’m selling a bridge in the Sahara that I’d like you to take a look at.

ShawneeBuck74's picture

I wasn’t calling for Mike Hartline to make the jump to OSU’s OC, Iowa, to be clear.  
He could be a quality control coach OR a QB coach (because let’s face it, Ryan Day is the OC & QB coach).  He’s better than Nick Siciliano. 
Mike is a talented guy and I think would add to the staff like his brother did, esp. in recruiting.

OldColumbusTown's picture

Mike Hartline already spent a couple years as an offensive QC coach at OSU.  Back in 2015-16 I believe.  He would not have worked with Day or Wilson, or anyone still on the offensive staff for that matter.  I think it is doubtful he would be a QB coach candidate without true FBS recruiting experience.

But with the obvious connections he has on staff, who knows...

HS
Bukirob's picture

Maybe if you actually knew what you were talking about youd make sense.  Yurcick iS NOT the OC he is a position coach.  Day calls the plays  Hiring a young coach who you are pretty sure can recruit to help with the development in the QB room is NOT entrusting the OSU offense into his hands.  GEESH

Talk about not knowing what you’re talking about. How do we know Mike Hartline can help with recruiting? Where’s the evidence of that? Because he’s coaching kids at The Ohio Dominican University who wouldn’t even be walkons at The Ohio STATE University?

Also, Yurcich’s title is passing game coordinator and quarterback coach, which puts him halfway between OC and a position coach and stuck in career purgatory on Ryan Day’s staff.

Perhaps both?

Corey Dennis promoted to replace Yurcich, Mike Hartline brought in to Dennis' old position.  This would allow M. Hartline to essentially get his feet wet after a massive jump from DIII to a top FBS team and not get overwhelmed immediately.  

HS
TroyBuckeyeFan22's picture

DII, but honestly mistake. I have a hard time seeing Ohio State hiring a guy like that to become an actual coach. Most times, you have to work from quality control/GA into a position like that. D2 to Ohio State is not a completely different sport but I can’t imagine it’s very close.

You make an excellent point which is why I’m not a big fan of Coombs being the guy to replace Hafley.  If Fickell does leave for a bigger job in a year or 2 Coombs will definitely be on the short list.  Day needs to bring in guys who will stay for the longer term and bring stability to the coaching staff and program

Coombs was born in 1961.  Would it make sense for UC to hire a coach with no HC experience who is/almost 60?  If they get him back, my guess is that he stays until retirement

It’s not just coming from McMurphy.  247sports is reporting it too.  I’m getting pissed now, not liking the one and dones.  How about Day promote this guy to OC to keep him.  This is gonna be an issue if more and more guys leave after only a year

Pretty unworried about this honestly. I think of all the offensive coaches, Wilson is the guy we should want to hold on to. I am confident enough in Day's offense and playcalling abilities to believe a passing coach would be fairly plug and play so anyone that is a strong recruiter would be good by me.

As long as Wilson stays.

Day, Wilson, and Hartline. Those guys leading the offense in play calling and recruiting is what is going to make the offense great.

If you take everything I’ve accomplished in my life and condense it down to one day, it looks decent!

Good opportunity to show Beian Hartline how much he is appreciated. Raise and bump of responsibility. I'd love for him to learn enough to eventually be our OC.

Funny how there's been no chatter on this board about Yurcich leaving until today, when BM reports it. And now it's gospel, and suddenly he's prickly to work with. WTF. Does this mean he's in active negotiations with Texas, it's just a rumor, or what?

HS

After reading through the comments, no issues on my end (not that it matters).

Seems Coach Day has a firm grasp on the pulse of the program. Would also like to believe that if this is being suggested by Day, then he also has another person(s) in mind that he thinks would be a better fit.

Hafley is a much bigger loss. Honestly after that, this news w Yurcich just makes me think, “hey, we got Ryan F’n Day!” Yurcich really seemed like a bright guy coming in, but if Day “encourages” a coach to leave - I’m all for it. Better than leave, than hang on and create waves/issues. 
Day is building an Empire; I’m convinced of it. He doesn’t just want to win Championships - he wants to lay waste to the landscape. I really think he wants to set a new standard. We’re luck to have him. In Day I Trust. 

A lion sleeps in every man, dissatisfaction moves him,  complacency keeps him asleep.

Isn't really a loss. Might be the least important member of the staff with Day being a qb coach himself. Wilson and Day are the minds behind this offense and Justin will have a ton of experience heading into next season. New hire is important for development of CJ or Jack though. Much more concerned about the loss of Hafley than this. 

In Urban we trust

Based in comments above, this answers my question of what we haven't seen Yurcich do many pressers. There must have been some buyers remorse by Day after seeing what transpired over the course of the off-season and current season.

Hopefully, whatever the case is, it doesn't care hurt the team in this stretch run.

I am hearing Brian Kelly will be named the Jets Coach at the end of the season, which then means Urban Meyer will be named the Head Coach of ND by the middle/end of January. BK has a great relationship with Jets ownership, which tried to to get him last year, before the Gase hire. Fickell will be on the short list to replace Ryan Day in 3 to 5 years, although, I dont think he would get the job.

Smitty516's picture

My problem with McMurphy was he didn’t let things go after Smith was fired. Yes, as usual, Ohio State ended up coming out better in the long run. But that doesn’t mean McMurphy should be off the “hook.” Not only was his whole approach to the Zach Smith shady to begin with, he went out of his way to try and take down Meyer with no regard to anyone but trying to revitalize his shitty career. When he was unsuccessful in taking Meyer down, he put out the whole sex toy article. No reason for this kind of shit. As if Smith’s kids weren’t going through enough embarrassment, this article gets put out there when Smith was already fired. The goal of this trash was to harm Meyer when all it did was pour salt of the already gaping wound of the Smith kids. 
When Meyer was still the coach in November, he wrote another trash article accusing Smith of using the n word which was debunked immediately and he even accused Trevon Grimes mother of exaggerating her cancer...

when you are as shitty a person as McMurphy is, I’m never letting that shit go...

HS

See, that’s a reasonable take and I won’t argue that. I’m talking about the “gurrr, mcfuckface can go eat a case of herpes rats, gurrr..”

most people hare him because they worship at the altar of urban. And like I said, hate him, you do you. But I’m not giving him that space in my brain. 

and bad, indefensible choices aside, Zach and Courtney should be doing better at protecting their kids.

Can't speak for anyone else, but my reasoning is 2 fold.  First, him trying to hide in the shadows and sick Burt McMurphy on the OSU program because he was mad we were taking all the best talent in Texas.  Second, the negative recruiting school he went to with James Franklin.  The rest of his ineptitude like getting beat up by sledgehammers, flipping off LHN like a jackass, trying to fight Mike Gundy in the middle of a game, losing to Maryland twice.......etc is really entertaining though.

Do we know this to be the case? This was sort of the question behind my question as I get there is a lot of association going on between Meyer's eventual 'retirement' and Herman's involvement in the early stages.

Burt finally was forced to admit that Michelle Herman was his source.  As for motive, he just watched ZS pull a 5 Star stud WR from his own backyard.  Not sure it was a coincidence given all the allegations were years old when Burt reported them.

HS
BrewstersMillions's picture

Ok so now we are saying two different things. We got sold a bill of goods that Shelly didn't know stuff that Urban had going on, doesn't Herman deserve the same? that perhaps his wife went off the reservation and did this on her own?

It seems like a TON of implying with little else to back it.

Proudly dispensing unbridled arrogance since 1983.

HS
CTBuckeyeFan's picture

So Michelle went to McMurphy because she was upset that ZS secured a commit from a stud WR in Tom's backyard?  She did this behind Tom's back?  I guess we could try to believe that.  Tom admitted to giving cash to Courtney Smith though, so that throws a wrench into his plausible deniability.  We're also ignoring everything Zach has said about this in his Podcast where he completely implicates Tom Herman and McMurphy.  Zach Smith should have meant nothing to the Hermans in 2018.  He and Courtney were divorced and had both moved on, though the child custody was still messy but thats the nature of them.  Not sure why the Hermans, or one Herman, needed to get involved outside of their own self interests.  You could try to argue they were acting in Courtney's best interest, but cutting off her 5 figure monthly child support/alimony checks was an interesting way to go about it.

I feel like that is what is being stated, and yes I agree its unlikely especially over recruiting. Maybe it was actually over....I don't know...actual spousal abuse?

We're also ignoring everything Zach has said about this in his Podcast where he completely implicates Tom Herman and McMurphy

I will proudly continue to ignore everything Zach Smith has said, is saying, or will ever say. 

You could try to argue they were acting in Courtney's best interest, but cutting off her 5 figure monthly child support/alimony checks was an interesting way to go about it.  

Is that what it boils down to for you? They aren't acting in her best interest because they were part of the reason her '5 figure monthly child support/alimony checks' got cut off? Hey Courtney, sorry you might be getting the shit kicked out of you on the reg, but man that cash has to be nice.

HS

The alleged abuse was over 3 years prior to all this though, so even if you take Courtney at her word (She's about as credible as Zach) there was no reason for the Hermans to step in now.  Maybe it was a coincidence that they finally acted right after Zach pulled Garrett Wilson though, I tend do doubt it but I admit its possible.

Ignoring Zach isn't a bad idea, hard to give him the benefit of the doubt given how douchey he comes across.  That doesn't mean he's lying though, problem is you have to decide to trust 1 trainwreck or the other here.

From the Herman's perspective?  Yes, thats what it boils down to.  Otherwise they wouldn't have waited until 2018 to act.  So they apparently tried to help their friend, or she did alone, by getting Zach fired and cutting off the main source of income for Courtney and the kids.  That really makes no sense given by Courtney's own admission she was in no danger from Zach Smith in 2018.  Kind of opens the door for an ulterior motive on the part of the Hermans.  

Maybe Tom and Michelle are actually great people who were just trying to do the right thing here, that would seem to be a deviation from their behavior in almost every other public spectacle they've made though.  From belittling people for not being Mensa,to trying to fight opposing coaches and flipping off the world on live TV, we've seen these 2 take the douchebag route more often than not so I have no problem believing they did this for their own self interests.

How does clemson keep all of their assistants? Since we've played them in the Orange Bowl in 2013, they still have the EXACT same staff today, except two people, who had relatively insignificant roles as a strength coach and a RBs coach I believe. Meanwhile, we only have 3 guys on the staff currently that were there in 2013, and even 2016.

Well, no info has come out anymore on this for a couple days? I assume it could be because of Christmas or Ohio State is trying keep it under wraps to not cause more distraction.

Some part of me wonders if this is another bs move from Herman to cause distraction before the semi-final game, especially with the way we continue to raid Texas in recruiting even after Urban left.
