The rumors that Mike Vrabel could join the Ohio State coaching staff have floated around for a while.
Vrabel indicated last month that it wasn’t time yet, but it appears he’s changed his mind. Our friend John Taylor at CollegeFootballTalk.com has the scoop, saying there is a “very good chance” Vrabel will take a defensive job on new coach Luke Fickell’s staff.
“One source stated that an announcement could made as early as this coming Monday,” Taylor writes.
Vrabel’s NFL career took him from a backup in Pittsburgh to a wisecracking core member of three title teams in New England. It appears his “veteran mentor” years in Kansas City will close out his career before he heads back home for a new life in coaching. Head to CFT for more.
