Ohio State confirms Beck as offensive coordinator

 Posted by: Sports


Ohio State head football coach Urban Meyer confirmed rumors regarding former Nebraska offensive coordinator Tim Beck Wednesday. 

Meyer confirmed the rumor that Beck will take over as co-offensive coordinator for the Buckeyes, who just won the CFB Playoff national title on Monday, replacing Ohio State’s former offensive coordinator Tom Herman. Ohio State’s main offensive coordinator will be Ed Warriner while Beck will coach the quarterbacks and have a secondary coordinating role. 

“Ed Warinner is certainly deserving, experienced and well-qualified for the offensive coordinator position,” Meyer said in a news release. “I’m pleased to be able to promote from within our program and I believe he is going to be an excellent coordinator for us.

“I have known Tim for several years and have also watched and competed against him. I have always respected his knowledge of the game and he is respected in the profession. I always look for coordinators and co-coordinators who will mesh with our staff, our style and can make us better. I believe Tim will do just that.”

Beck takes over an extremely talented unit headed by Cardale Jones, the starter in the national championship game. Beck could also coach two time Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year Braxton Miller and 2014 first team All-Big Ten quarterback J.T. Barrett. Both players are returning from injury this upcoming season. 

Beck spent seven seasons at Nebraska, the last four as it’s offensive coordinator and quarterback’s coach.
