Kenny Anunike, who served as a graduate assistant for Ohio State's defensive line for the past two years, has left the Buckeyes to become the new defensive line coach at Fordham.
Our new DL Coach comes to the Bronx after working with the same position at The Ohio State University! He also is the proud owner of a Super Bowl ring from his playing days!— Fordham Football (@FORDHAMFOOTBALL) April 3, 2020

A former NFL defensive end, Anunike joined Ohio State's staff in 2018 and worked alongside Larry Johnson for the past two years as an assistant defensive line coach. As Eleven Warriors' Zack Carpenter wrote in December, some Ohio State defensive linemen viewed Anunike – a Central Ohio native – as a potential eventual successor to Johnson.
For now, though, Anunike will cut his teeth at the Football Championship Subdivision level as he becomes a full-time position coach for the first time in his coaching career.
