One day after being hired as the new head coach as the Tennessee Titans, former Ohio State assistant coach Mike Vrabel reportedly has his eyes on one of the Buckeyes' current assistant coaches.

According to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter, Ohio State co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Ryan Day is considering becoming the Titans' new offensive coordinator. Jason Wolf of the Tennessean also reported that Vrabel is "expected to target" Day as his offensive coordinator.

Day previously turned down a potential opportunity to become an SEC head coach during college football's coaching silly season. Day joined Ohio State's staff last year, and Ohio State coach Urban Meyer typically asks his assistant coaches to make a two-year commitment when they join the staff.

That said, Day has a history of working in the NFL, having been the Philadelphia Eagles' quarterbacks coach in 2015 and San Francisco 49ers' quarterbacks coach in 2016. 

While it's unknown whether Day will ultimately accept the job, Ohio State quarterback Tate Martell was among those who expressed their sadness over Day's potential departure on Sunday on Twitter.

Day previously coached and played for Chip Kelly, who recruited current Titans starting quarterback Marcus Mariota to Oregon, where Mariota went on to win the Heisman Trophy.
