During media availability last week, Ryan Day talked about how Ohio State is preparing for the challenges of potential player or coach absences due to COVID-19.

Day did not, however, detail what the Buckeyes' contingency plan will be if Day himself either contracts COVID-19 or is forced to miss a game because of contact tracing.

If Day does miss a game, it appears we will find out that week who the acting head coach for the Buckeyes will be.

If he is forced out of a game, which Buckeye assistant coach do you think Ohio State should replace him? Here are the top-nine assistants on the staff:

  • Larry Johnson (defensive line)
  • Greg Mattison (co-defensive coordinator)
  • Kerry Coombs (defensive coordinator)
  • Kevin Wilson (offensive coordinator/tight ends)
  • Al Washington (linebackers)
  • Tony Alford (running backs)
  • Brian Hartline (wide receivers)
  • Matt Barnes (special teams coordinator)
  • Greg Studrawa (offensive line)

Tell us your pick and why.
