Greg Schiano won't return to Ohio State in 2019

Greg Schiano won't return to Ohio State in 2019

Not only did archrival Ohio State end Michigan's conference and national titles hopes in a blowout win at the Horseshoe, the Buckeyes have also pilfered two of Jim Harbaugh's defensive coaches. While Meyer is no longer coaching at Ohio State, you have to think he played a role in bringing Mattison to Columbus, Ohio, to help out with the transition to Ryan Day as head coach.

According to multiple reports including Rivals' Buckeye Grove, Schiano will not be back for the 2019 season with the Buckeyes. During his three seasons with the 49ers, none of their young defensive backs ever improved.

On Monday, it was announced that longtime defensive line coach Greg Mattison was leaving Ann Arbor for Columbus. He was the coach of the Bucs in 2012 and 2013 after spending 11 seasons as Rutgers' head coach.

Washington was defensive line coach on Luke Fickell's Cincinnati staff in 2017 before jumping to MI.

Mattison has been a solid recruiter and stabilizing force for a MI coaching staff that's undergone plenty of turnover during the Harbaugh era. Seeing how Meyer dealt with the handful of losses he had here, it's hard to imagine the severity with which a loss to that team would have consumed him.

It's not often you see a coach leave MI for Ohio State and vice versa. Greg (Mattison) is a terrific coach.

Ohio State also announced that defensive line coach Larry Johnson will continue coaching the defensive line, but has also been promoted to associate head coach.

Ohio State's defense gave up 5.6 yards per play in 2018 and had a tendency to give up big plays. He even joked that he wouldn't have retired this year had the Buckeyes not beat MI.
