Ohio State set to hire Alex Grinch as co-defensive coordinator

Ohio State will hire Washington State defensive coordinator Alex Grinch to be co-coordinator with Greg Schiano as the Buckeyes' 10th assistant coach when the position becomes officially available Wednesday under new NCAA rules, according to multiple reports. Ohio State spokesman Jerry Emig says there would be no announcement on the addition of a 10th assistant coach on Urban Meyer's staff until next week at earliest.

Grinch, who played collegiately at Division III powerhouse Mount Union, began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Missouri under Gary Pinkel, who is his uncle.

Being closer to home and family factored into Grinch's decision to take the job in Columbus, Ohio, sources told The Seattle Times. He would, however, likely have gotten a significant raise and contract extension if he'd opted to remain at WSU.

Under Grinch's guidance, Washington State finished 74th or better nationally in scoring defense all three seasons.

Under Grinch, the Cougars' defense acquired an identity - The Speed D - and, at his insistence, steadily improved at forcing turnovers.

Phillips was a third-team All-American this season when he had 14 1/2 tackles for loss and 7 1/2 sacks for the Cardinal. If he's able to show the same level of success at Ohio State, there's a good chance that Grinch will be a head coaching candidate in 2019.

WSU Athletics declined to comment on the impending move.
