After a single year, Coach Dylan Sheridan quit today. Sheridan founded the Cleveland State University lacrosse program, leading them to increased success each year. The Ohio State offense took a notable step forward under Sheridan in 2020, as has been detailed in previous posts. Per Inside Lacrosse, Sheridan stated he wanted to spend more time with his family. His wife is Brianne Tierney, the head coach at Kent State. Sheridan would live in Columbus during the week, and commute home on the weekends. That is a recipe for disaster, on a personal level. No one can maintain a healthy relationship under those conditions. Not really. Too much travel and stress with too little time together.
On the one hand, I have to give it to Coach Sheridan for putting family first. There's many a Hall of Fame coach with a broken family, most of whom say it wasn't worth it. From the program side, Coach Myers needs to right the ship offensively. And fast. Three OCs in three years will not do the team any favors, and risks squandering the best offensive unit in a long while. Now we wait to see who the latest OC will be.
