COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Kerry Coombs is returning to the Ohio State coaching staff, this time as defensive coordinator.
Coombs spent 2012-2017 on the Ohio State staff as cornerbacks coach and has spent the past two seasons in the NFL as cornerbacks coach for the Tennessee Titans.
Coombs moves into the slot vacated by Jeff Hafley, who was hired as head coach at Boston College.
Every starting Ohio State cornerback in Coombs' six-year tenure reached the NFL.
