News of Tony Alford's departure from Ohio State on Wednesday caught many off guard.

The fact that his next job involved heading north to coach Ohio State's archrival made it all the more shocking for some inside the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. 

After nine seasons as the Buckeyes' running backs coach, Alford will now be on the other sideline of college football's greatest rivalry. After word of his job change spread, several current Ohio State players took to social media to give their thoughts.

A slew of former Ohio State players also had some things to say about Alford's departure, with a certain former standout running back offering his services for the job's vacancy.

Four-star 2025 wide receiver commit Jayvan Boggs was also caught off guard by the news, along with Dale Davison-Witten, the father of 2024 Ohio State tight end signee Damarion Witten.
