Add another name to the pool of Ohio State's coaching staff changes.

The Buckeyes have hired Ryan Crow, a former graduate assistant under Urban Meyer at Florida, to be assistant linebackers coach, according to Eleven Warriors sources. Crow spent the last three seasons at Division III Baldwin Wallace University, first as offensive line coach in 2014 and then offensive coordinator the last two years.

Crow is likely to work alongside new defensive assistant Billy Davis, who the Buckeyes hired on Dec. 21 following the departure of Luke Fickell, now the head coach at Cincinnati. The program has yet to announce Davis' official role with the program, though it would make sense he would step in for Fickell and coach the linebackers.

Crow officially left Baldwin Wallace on Jan. 6. Before working for the Yellow Jackets, he spent time at Purdue as well as Florida. Crow worked as an assistant football and baseball strength coach while with the Boilermakers starting in June 2011. The Boilermakers promoted him to assistant offensive line coach in June 2012. Crow also worked in strength and conditioning during his time in Gainesville.

Crow played linebacker at Bowling Green from 2007-10, helping the Falcons win a share of the MAC East Division crown in 2007.
