Despite reports that Ryan Day was under consideration to become the Tennessee Titans' offensive coordinator, Ohio State announced Tuesday that Day will remain on the Buckeyes' coaching staff and has been promoted to offensive coordinator.
Day completed his first season as quarterbacks coach and co-offensive coordinator in 2017.
It is unclear what that will mean for Kevin Wilson, who held the title of offensive coordinator at Ohio State in 2017
"Day will continue to coach the Ohio State quarterbacks and work with Kevin Wilson to lead the Ohio State offense with additional adjustments to (Wilson's) responsibilities forthcoming," the school said in a statement.
Wilson called the offensive plays during games in 2017, and Day may have that role in 2018.
"Ryan is clearly a very talented coach who has been an outstanding addition to our program," head coach Urban Meyer said in a statement. "He has been approached by other schools numerous times this offseason for coordinator and head coach opportunities, and by the National Football League for a coordinator opportunity. I am pleased that he has elected to continue to work on this staff and to lead, mentor and coach the terrific young men we have in this program."
Day has been an offensive coordinator before, serving in that role at Temple in 2012 and at Boston College in 2013-14.
