Kevin Wilson isn’t going far.
In fact, he’s not leaving the division.
Wilson is set to become Ohio State’s next offensive coordinator, according to Fox Sports’ Bruce Feldman and IU blog Crimson Quarry. Wilson officially resigned as Indiana’s coach on Dec. 1 due to what athletic director Fred Glass deemed philosophical differences.
Wilson and Ohio State coach Urban Meyer have long shared a mutual admiration for one another. While Meyer was at Bowling Green and Wilson was on Randy Walker’s staff at Northwestern, members of the two staffs met during the summer of 2001 to discuss philosophies and share ideas. Meyer has said that, over the years, he and his staffers have taken some of the same concepts used by Wilson and incorporated them in his offense.
Ohio State lost offensive coordinator Tim Beck to Texas this week, opening the door for a Wilson-Meyer partnership.
“If Kevin Wilson becomes offensive coordinator at Ohio State, they will be 2017 National Champions,” former IU receiver Shane Wynn tweeted on Tuesday.
