The-Ozone Rewind: Watching Kerry Coombs' OSU Practice Debut
March 29, 2012 | This story comes from Tony Gerdeman and details Kerry Coombs' first spring practice as Ohio State's cornerbacks coach. Coombs was a late addition to Urban Meyer's staff, but none were more valuable. Coombs' intensity made him an instant favorite among Buckeye fans, and much of that intensity was present in his very first...
My favourite Coombs moment was when he dogged Michael Thomas for getting defended on a pass and he was whoopin' on him telling him something like, "How does it feel to come all the way from California to ride the bench?" Gerd will have the exact quote but given what happened with Thomas that's just too rich remembering it.
Vrabel had a similar one in 2013 yelling at Joey Bosa telling him this ain't Aquinas anymore. LOL.
Top-level schools can have stories like this. Makes it great to be a Buckeye!
