Greg Studrawa to Join Ohio State's Staff as Offensive Line Coach

Really hoping this means Warriner stays in the booth, because our offense was night and day different when he moved up there.  Don't know much about Studrawa, but like what it does for Warriner.  

HS
FitzBuck's picture

That's exactly what this means.  Only reason Urban wanted to keep him on the sideline was to coach O line.  Can't have an inexperienced O line and have the O line coach in the box.

He was the OC  candidate that most people wanted when UFM was initially hired, he hired Tom Herman who is a member of Mensa, Studrawa stayed at LSU and rest as they say is history!!

Studrawa was with him in BG. It's a solid hire. 

I've never said I 'hate' anyone because that would imply I had any emotion for them whatsoever.

HS

It's not the hire. Its the moving of Warriner to TE coach.

What if you don't hear YOLO anymore because everyone who use to say it died?

HS

Warriner will remain O.C. He is not moving to tight ends. He is absorbing the tight end duties and likely staying in the booth.

Studrawa is going to coach the o-line. Warriner takes over the TE's and keeps playcalling responsibility.

Well that parts fine. We never use the TE so I'm not really worried about their coaching. This is a polite firing of Hinton though. 

HS
Gobucks2204's picture

Not really a firing. I think Hinton isn't as good as a recruiter but is better at organizational stuff. So it's a win for everyone.

Maybe he chose a role that didn't involve having to spend life 24/7 begging and pleading with cocky 16 year old, telling them how wonderful they are.  Tweeting, texting, Facebook, calling them. F that.

His masters degree is in educational policy and leadership.  I'd assume his new role is more aligned to that then pleading with and stalking HS boys.

UV for more positive take.  All of this supposition is worthless.  Unless your getting it from the locker room it is bs speculation.  There is likely an endless list of possible reasons for the move.  Pretty sure the fan base is not owed an explanation for personnel moves.

Now for my bs speculation.

It does seem obvious it will put Coach W in the booth for games.  Since it has also been speculated that he is a potential hire for a head coaching position in the future, it looks like a win on multiple fronts.

If you think a reorg is equal to being fired then you clearly have no idea what it means to be fired.

Fired is when they call your ass down to HR while someone else boxes up your personal belongings and they tell you if you are seen on company property after today they will call the police.  That, is "being fired".  Seeing as Hinton is still employed by the Ohio State Athletic Department he was in no way, shape or form, fired.

Not must more DMV recruiting, but more southern recruiting. I'd have to imagine this guy has a lot of connections at Louisiana schools. Maybe too late in the game to affect Lawrence but the future...

He wasn't the primary recruited for anyone in the 2016 class (committed) except Kierre Hawkins. I think that speaks volumes. Not trying to trash the guy, just being realistic. 

I think this is a move to mitigate damage done when Ed leaved after this year, as well as gain a better recruiter.

Maryland picked up a couple bluechip O-lineman recruits while he was there, so I gotta think he's decent in that regard.

HS
Terp_Bucks's picture

This is an excellent hire IMO. Studrawa definitely improved the OL at Maryland and I was hoping Durkin would retain him. I think the Slobs should be in good hands and it also allows Warinner to focus more on the playcalling.

This is a "keep an eye on the future" move, IMHO.

Ed is going to get a HC gig sooner rather than later and Greg Studrawa was going to end up here eventually.

It's a good move.

Correct, Studrawa was Urban's #1 choice for O-line coach  but Studrawa decided to stay at LSU.  I believe Matt Campbell, (New Iowa State coach) was Urban's #2 choice for O-line coach but Campbell was hired as the head coach at Toledo when Tim Beckman moved from UT to Illinois.  Warriner was then hired and has done a great job while at OSU.

Is he a good coach? I mean this seems stupid. You take the best OL coach in the country and move him to coach TE's and bring in a dude who coached Maryland's OL to replace the best OL coach in the country? Whats the advantage with this move?

So we can keep Warinner in the booth !

HS
buckzilla1's picture

Mentoring by the best O-Line coach in college football. It's the Urban way. Mr. Ed may soon be gone to head coach somewhere else. Why not bring in a guy you trust, (Stud) give him the masters course in OL coaching from the Doctorate Warriner and when Mr. Ed leaves, he has left behind someone to replace him that is just as good if not better then he was when he got there. We take people whom best fit our program. Both recruits and coaches. Sometimes we miss. Most of the time "BOOM". 50-4. This is a smart move all the way around.  

This Corona ain't no bologna! Do your part to flatten the curve, the life you save may be one of your fellow Buckeyes!

IIRC, people wanted him to be the O-line coach before we hired Warinner. He was o-line coach at LSU at the time and many people here was originally disappointed with Warinner because they wanted Stud. To me, this is an unmitigated win.

Let me google that for you. HERE is a pretty complete bio from the LSU website.

I'll also add that he was a Graduate Assistant for the Offensive Line under Cooper. I seem to remember a few good linemen

Also, he was the OL coach at BGSU in 2003 when they almost beat us save for a 100 yard interception return for touchdown by Will Allen. I remember being very irritated that day with the way they were able to move the ball on us at times.

Number of commitments: 4 
Highest rated commitment: Three-star center Mason Zimmerman 
Next Terps coach in the rankings: Mike Locksley (223) 
Details: Studrawa is the offensive line coach, and three of his four commits will are linemen. All four of his commits are three-star prospects, and two are in-state prospects. The others are from Ohio and Pennsylvania.

I also read somewhere that he was responsible for pulling in a 5-star LB from Illinois and a total of three (two?) 4-stars during his final couple seasons at LSU.

Not trying to downplay his recruiting efforts, but pulling a LA kids to LSU is like stealing candy from a baby. LA kids usually stay at LSU.

So Warinner as OC/TE Coach (hopefully calling plays in the booth), Beck as QB Coach, and Stud raws as OL Coach with probably a little assistance from Ed. Pair that with Schiano joining the defensive ranks... I can dig it.

This is excellent news for this year. We saw what the offense looked like with Warriner in the box. Now he gets a full season up there? I love it. Go Bucks!

And Toledo still sucks.

HS
InJTweMust's picture

Awesome hire. He's from Ohio, has coached in Ohio, and is very familiar with a Meyer-led program as he was the OC at Bowling Green under Meyer. LSU has produced some great offensive lineman over the last decade or so, and Studrawa likely deserves some credit for that. He's won a national championship and I would bet Meyer is well aware of his recruiting ties in the south.

I know some are a little concerned with the offensive line next season with all the new starters, but returning Price and Efflein is huge, and Studrawa has a proven track-record of preparing first year starters. The fact that these young o-lineman are going to be guided by two of the best 'Slob Masters' in all of college football should ease the minds of many. (Yes, Warinner is now the OC, but one can probably assume he's a Slob at heart, therefore he'll still be around to help guide the young slobs.)

This is great!  Many were pining for him as line coach when we first hired Coach Meyer. Unfortunately his hiring and this restructuring is even more damning to Beck.  Maybe he'll thrive more in the QB coach role and have less booth/play calling.

Hinton was looking to step down after 2014. The guy he is replacing has been with OSU going back to Tressel (a LT Ohio HS coach)...not sure what happened to Gillum. Excellent move by Meyer, when Greg hit the open market Urban wasn't going to pass him up. I wonder why he left LSU to go to Maryland

Sounds like an awesome hire. Booms in coaching and Booms to come with recruits!

This should make the transition a lot smoother than if we waited for Warrner to leave before hiring someone. 

If the OC is the tight ends coach, can we expect to actually throw to them in the future?  Also Warrner as tight end coach ensures that we will have the best blocking tight ends anywhere.

That's good since I think after the Michigan State game we were all yelling "The coaching of the tight ends is why we lost this game, everything else was fine!  Why can't Urban get rid of that damned tight ends coach?"

We don't know what was going on behind the scenes with Hinton. I'd say having an Offensive mind like Studrawa is a huge upgrade from Hinton. It's not just to "replace a tight ends coach,"

I understood that, but it's not like Hinton had a major role coaching or was fired. This gives Warriner more time to focus on playcalling.

Why all the concern out there about the new assistant coach? Meyer's 50-4 in four seasons here with one national championship. Trust  him! I do.

To play devil's advocate, this is from a LSU fan on Reddit,

His primary recruiting areas were O-Linemen and northern Louisiana. We lost damn good recruits to Alabama on his watch. Our O-Line development (specifically with technique) suffered under him too.

The other comments were "Yikes" and "He sucks".

So far 7 different LSU fans have commented on the reddit thread and they all say he sucked. He also just got let go by Maryland. Normally I trust Urban but I just remember what Nebraska fans were saying after we hired Tim Beck and this is similar.

Interesting...  Was just a week ago that Coach Meyer said no changes to the coaching staff coming this year and then boom. If Hinton got tired of the grind of recruiting why not just bring in a new tight end coach?

Seems like there may be more to this story. Ed moves to the press box and becomes full time OC basically and then we bring in a line coach in Studrawa with OC experience... hmmmmmm

HS

Maybe it's as simple as Hinton wanted to step down from coaching, and Meyer has a relationship with Studrawa (also a known commodity in coaching circles). Hinton is staying with the program. Why does there have to be more to the story?

HS
tcm1968's picture

Jan 8th : Do you foresee any staff changes this offseason? Urban : “No”

Either Urban was flat out lying or there's more to the story. We just basically changed our entire offensive coaching structure. That's more than Tim Hinton wanting to get out of coaching. We have a new O Line Coach, a New tight end Coach and a play caller in Warinner moving up to the box full time.

Only our RB coach is doing what he did last year. That's a LONG way from not making any changes.

People need to quit dumping on Beck every chance they get. He is going to be the coach for another year whether we like it or not. How does it look to recruits if every other post is some cheap shot about how bad Beck sucks? Time to get over it.

Recruits aren't stupid, they saw the same anemic offense we did for 3/4 of the season (with possibly the most talented team in 20+ years). I don't see this as a "blaming Beck" move, I see this as a "Beck is clearly not the future, here is what we're doing about it" move.

 

HS
Gobucks2204's picture

From what I'm hearing Beck and JT have a really good relationship. JT likes Beck and is excited for the future after the improvement in the last two games. I'm not defending Beck, just pointing out he is not the monster we've portrayed him to be.

A few additional facts:  Studrawa and Urban go back to Meyer's days at BGSU.  Studrawa is a possibility to stay at OSU as long as Urban is around.  This creates solid stability on the OSU coaching staff (turnover of assistant coaches was Urban's downfall at Florida).

Studrawa is a respected O-line coach and is respected by long time Ohio HS football coaches.  Studrawa's father was a long time assistant football coach and is well known in NW Ohio.   This can only help with recruiting, not only in Florida but also in Louisiana and the DC area.

Hinton was not a strong recruiter but was a solid organizer.  Moving to an admin position will hopefully lengthen Urban's stay in Columbus as Urban is surrounding himself with a core group of very loyal persons.

Finally, while it had been rumored for a couple of months that Hinton was planning to step down, I thought Urban would mack a play for Kentucky TE coach Vince Marrow, who is a tireless recruiter.  Hairball tried to lure Marrow to UM last winter.  I also thought Urban might go after Mike Locksley (who coaches with Studrawa last year at Maryland) and this might still be a possibility if Tim Beck moves on to another position (which is still a possibility).

Cool. So this means Jim Tressel is coming back as Assistant Head Coach. I also heard Chip Kelly was coming here as the Offensive Coordinator.

Oh. I also heard that Nick Siciliano was joining Hinton as Quality Control Coordinator and Beck as Assistant QB Coach.

Will be interesting to hear from Pat since we will have an experienced starter on the line next year to compare Ed to new guy. Also - Ed - who we know is a great O line coach is still here. So yes new guy coming in but we will still have Ed keeping an eye on just in case there is any truth to LSU fan base statements.

I bet Coach Hinton was on the coaching trail in Fl, TN, or CA.  Purchased a lottery ticket and no longer needs a job.  I further bet that the odds of this being true are the same as the odds of all the other bs speculation and about the odds of having a winning ticket!

I'm expecting Ed to work with Stud during the spring and a little during camp to make sure it's a smooth transition. If those two get along this is going to be dynamite. Elflein coming back is huge for the OL too. The guys we have stepping in are loaded with talent and Jones and Prince have been close.. Kind of surprised one of them didn't replace Farris. Hopefully they can gel at an acellerated rate maul the Sooners up front. I'm so excited about the potential for this OL.

I like Meyer hiring friends like Schiano and Studrawa. Hopefully this means assistant and head coaches will be on the same page and it will reflect on the field with the players. Also now that Warinner is coaching the TEs and calling the plays I think Marcus Baugh and Hausmann/Farrell will be very well utilized next season.
