According to Jason Lieser of The Palm Beach Post, Stan Drayton has officially been named the wide receivers coach for the Ohio State Buckeyes.
Here's what Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel had to say about his newest hire:
"Stan Drayton first and foremost is a fine person and family man. He is a Buckeye born and bred, and will add a tremendous dimension to our football family. We are fortunate to gain one of the finest coaches in America to serve our kids, school, and community."
Will Muschamp, who just filled out his staff a few weeks ago, now seeks both a running backs coach and a recruiting coordinator.
On a lighter note, do you think Drayton will ever wear his 2006 BCS National Championship ring to work?
So much for Florida Gators head coach Will Muschamp's desire for continuity between Urban Meyer's coaching staff and his own.
According to The Cleveland Plain Dealer, running backs coach and recruiting coordinator Stan Drayton is expected to take the wide receivers coaching position with the Ohio State Buckeyes.
Drayton, one of three Meyer assistants Muschamp retained, coached running backs for the Gators from 2005-2007 before leaving to take the same job with the Tennessee Volunteers.
After spending one year in Knoxville and another with the Syracuse Orange, Drayton rejoined Meyer in Gainesville in 2010.
Contrary to reports of Drayton's departure, Florida sports information director Steve McClain insists that the coaching staff "remains intact."
As far as Muschamp and the Gators are concerned, this could be potentially be another crippling blow to an already-suffering recruiting class just days before National Signing Day.
