Chris Holtmann and Ryan Pedon will not be on the sideline for Ohio State on Sunday.

The Ohio State head coach and assistant coach will both be unavailable due to health and safety protocols, and assistant coach Jake Diebler will serve as acting head coach for the Buckeyes in their 5:30 p.m. matchup against Northwestern.

Sunday's game is Ohio State's third since a COVID-19 outbreak in the program caused a 22-day layoff in action that saw the Buckeyes cancel three games in December.

The availability of both coaches for upcoming games will be determined later, according to a release from the program.
