Ohio State Cornerbacks Coach

Bill Sheridan has left the Ohio State staff after a very short stint with the program.  He left to become the defensive coordinator for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  Sheridan came to OSU after Taver Johnson left for a job at Arkansas in mid-January.  Here are some potential candidates to fill the opening on the Buckeyes staff:

Richard McNutt - Northern Illinois Cornerbacks Coach
  • Played at Ohio State from 1999-2002.
  • McNutt has strong Ohio ties.  In addition to playing for the Buckeyes, he has spent time coaching at Toledo, Kent State, and the Cleveland Browns. 

Paul Nichols - ex-Toledo Defensive Pass Coordinator/Safeties Coach
  • Started his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Ohio State in 2004 and '05, working on the Buckeyes staff along with Luke Fickell.

Aaron Alford - Utah Director of High School Relations
  • Played DB at Colorado State from 1992-95.  Urban Meyer was the WR coach at CSU from 1990-95.
  • Began his coaching career at Kent State in 1998 and also spent three seasons ('04-06) as DB coach at Akron.   

Ronnie Lee - ex-Minnesota Defensive Coordinator
  • Was on staff at Minnesota from 2007-10.  In '07, he worked with Everett Withers, who was the Gophers defensive coordinator for one season before going to North Carolina.
  • DB coach at Colorado State from 1993-2000.  He spent three years on staff with Urban Meyer, who was the Rams WR coach.
