Urban Meyer has already lost one assistant from his Ohio State coaching staff since the Big Ten championship game loss two weeks ago. Depending on how things play out at West Point, Meyer could lose another as well.
Jeremy Fowler of CBSSports.com tweeted Saturday that Ed Warinner has interviewed for the head-coaching vacancy at Army. The interview took place Friday, Fowler reported.
Warinner has been mentioned as a potential candidate previously, with the Times Herald-Record‘s Sal Interdonato tweeting Friday that he viewed the OSU co-offensive coordinator as well as Georgia Southern coach Jeff Monken as the top candidates for the position.
If anything, Warinner has a significant edge when it comes to familiarity with the service academy. From 1987-99, Warinner served as an assistant coach at Army, with his duties ranging from linebackers coach to offensive line coach to offensive coordinator. He also spent three seasons as the line coach at Air Force after leaving Army.
Coming to the Buckeyes in December of 2011 from Notre Dame, Warinner has spent the past two seasons as OSU’s as co-coordinator as well as line coach.
