Two new assistants have been added to Ohio State's offensive coaching staff.

After former UCLA offensive coordinator Justin Frye was named the Buckeyes' new offensive line coach on Jan. 11, Ohio State has added former Florida assistant Mike Sollenne as a graduate assistant on the offensive line. Sollenne changed his profile picture on Twitter to a photo of himself in Buckeye gear on Saturday, and now appears in the Ohio State staff directory.

Sollenne spent the past two seasons on staff with the Gators, where he spent time as an assistant before being promoted to interim offensive line coach following the firing of John Hevesy this past November.

Sollenne played offensive tackle for Long Island University Post from 2012-15 and earned all-conference honors in each of his final two seasons. Sollenne also spent several seasons on staff as offensive line coach and run game coordinator at Nassau Community College before joining the Gator program.

Also joining the ranks for the Buckeye offense is former Western Michigan offensive graduate assistant Keegan O'Hara, who will work with Brian Hartline and the Ohio State wide receivers.

O'Hara is a graduate of Chicago's St. Rita High School, which is where true freshman wideout Kaleb Brown hails from as well.
