Since taking over the Ohio State program, Ryan Day has the Buckeyes playing like one of the most impressive teams in the country. Everyone knew the Buckeyes had to potential to be really good this fall, but Day and his staff are exceeding even those expectations as they’ve dismantled Nebraska and Michigan State in back-to-back weeks with their 6-0 start.
Today, Day was asked about a return to the NFL (he spent two seasons in the league coaching quarterbacks – 2015 with the Eagles and 2016 with the 49ers), and more specifically, if the Redskins were to call him right now, what would he say?
“Being at a place like Ohio State, anytime there’s success, things like this are going to come up. I don’t ever want to talk about any of that stuff.”
“I love it here, and this is where I want to be. Whether it’s good, bad, or indifferent for the next 5, 10, or hopefully 20 years that I’m here, I don’t want to comment.”
The Buckeyes will face Northwestern this weekend before a big showdown with a top 10 Wisconsin Badgers squad next weekend. The final two games of their regular season are home against Penn State and then on the road in Ann Arbor for the big rivalry game.
See Day’s full comments below.
Ryan Day has been mentioned as a candidate for the Redskins job, and he'll likely be targeted by other NFL teams.
The @OhioStateFB coach addressed the rumors today.
