Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer said his team will be better next year.
Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer spoke with USA Today during the American Football Coaches Association awards on Tuesday and made some interesting admissions about his team the past two years.
Meyer, who has made some changes to his coaching staff the past week, admitted that his offense has been “one-dimensional” since 2014. Ohio State’s offense will be led by Ryan Day and Kevin Wilson moving forward – as both Tim Beck and Ed Warinner have moved on.
Here’s what Meyer had to say:
“We made some changes and we’re going to be better next year and our players deserve that. You watch the championship game and those are two great teams. But it just leaves a bittersweet taste, you know, you were that close. But we just didn’t play well. But congratulations to Dabo Swinney, he’s a great friend and a great coach.”
In 2014 we were one of the most balanced teams in college football run-pass, and we went one-dimensional. So we’re going to open things up and let J.T. Barrett play and get the skill guys more involved. Really anxious to open things up a bit.”
Ohio State reached the College Football Playoff despite being the youngest team in college football this past year. It wouldn’t be shocking to see the Buckeyes repeat the feat in 2017.
