Report: Ohio State Co-Defensive Coordinator Chris Ash Interviews for Colorado State Job

Ohio State co-defensive coordinator Chris Ash interviewed for the Colorado State job, per ESPN's Brett McMurphy.

One key assistant from Urban Meyer's staff has already accepted a head coaching job at another school and co-defensive coordinator Chris Ash could be poised to join Tom Herman in the ranks of new head coaches, according to a report from ESPN's Brett McMurphy.

Ash reportedly interviewed for the open Colorado State position vacated by Jim McElwain, who recently accepted the same position at the University of Florida. McMurphy also stated former USC associate head coach John Baxter interviewed for the position and Michigan State defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi was reported to have interviewed for the job as well.

Ash, fresh off his first season in Columbus, worked miracles with the Ohio State secondary, turning a unit that had been a weakness of the team last season into a strength this year. While his departure would be a blow to the Buckeye defense, such is the price of success in major college football.
