New Ohio State coach Bill Sheridan leaves Meyer’s staff for NFL

According to The Lantern, defensive assistant coach Bill Sheridan is taking a job with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers-

Bill Sheridan, defensive coach for Ohio State, and Urban Meyer’s most recent hire, has accepted a job with the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

A source told The Lantern that Sheridan will be the new defensive coordinator in Tampa Bay under newly hired head coach, Greg Schiano. Sheridan was Meyer’s last hire on the team after former defensive backs coach Taver Johnson left for a coaching job at Arkansas.

The move shouldn’t be a huge blow to the program, or to recruiting. Meyer will undoubtedly start looking for another defensive backs coach immediately.
