The Ohio State football team is undergoing coaching adjustments for the 2024 season with the aim of enhancing its performance. Despite concluding the season with an 11-2 record, the Buckeyes fell short of securing a spot in the College Football Playoff. Consequently, head coach Ryan Day has decided to make alterations by replacing special teams coach Parker Fleming and bringing in former Hoosiers defensive coordinator Matt Guerrieri.

Ryan Day and the Ohio State football program have made decisive moves on coach Parker Fleming and Indiana assistant Matt Guerrieri.

The Buckeyes revaluate their special teams leadership and build their secondary unit

Ryan Day and the Ohio State football program have decided to part ways with coach Parker Fleming and have brought in former Indiana defensive coordinator Matt Guerrieri, as reported by Adam Rittenberg. Fleming, who contributed significantly to the Buckeyes’ special teams performance during his three seasons, is moving on, while Guerrieri is returning to Columbus. Previously, Guerrieri served as a senior advisor and analyst for the program, and now he will take on a role leading Ohio State’s safeties unit.

Despite a relatively successful year, the Buckeyes are dissatisfied with the way their season concluded. Ohio State began the 2023-24 campaign undefeated but suffered a crucial loss to the Michigan Wolverines in their final regular-season game. Consequently, they missed out on the College Football Playoff.

Additionally, the Buckeyes faced a disappointing 14-3 defeat against the No. 10 Missouri Tigers in the Cotton Bowl, concluding their season on a less-than-ideal note. Ryan Day and the Buckeyes have faced criticism for their inability to make a deep playoff run. Hopefully, the recent coaching changes and leadership decisions will prove beneficial in the upcoming seasons.
