Buckeye Football Notebook: ‘I’d be surprised if any of that stuff happens’
Every year at a successful program, a head coach has to prepare himself to lose talented assistant coaches. Ohio State head coach Ryan Day didn’t anticipate losing Jeff Hafley after one year, but that’s the situation he finds himself in currently.
