Ohio State's new offensive coordinator, Bill O'Brien, was hired by the team last month, and as of Friday, he is expected to be taking the Boston College head coaching job.
O'Brien has been one of the hottest candidates for the job since it became open last week, and according to ESPN's Pete Thamel, "Bill O'Brien and Boston College are working toward a deal for him to become the next head coach per ESPN sources."
O'Brien is from the Boston area and was just the New England Patriots' offensive coordinator last season, so for him to stay in an area he is very familiar with and to be a head coach is something that I think everyone in his shoes would do.
Ohio State has to find their offensive coordinator, and head coach Ryan Day already stated earlier this week that he will be turning over the play calling this season, so whoever he hires will take over that role.
Other teams have already hired a lot of Ohio State candidates for their offensive coordinator job since it's so late into the off-season, so it will be interesting to see who Day hires for that position.
