Report: Ohio State OC Ed Warinner A Strong Candidate For WKU Job

Reports suggest Ohio State co-offensive coordinator Ed Warinner could replace Jeff Brohm at Western Kentucky as head coach.

After Western Kentucky head coach Jeff Brohm was lured away by Purdue's $20 million contract last week, there's been a hole to fill at WKU, and early reports are suggesting Kentucky native Ed Warinner is in serious contention for the job, per Tim May of the Columbus Dispatch.

Check it out:

Western Kentucky has had difficulty lately keeping a coach. Before Brohm, they hired Bobby Petrino in 2013, who stuck around for a year before leaving for greener pastures in Louisville. Willie Taggart was his predecessor, and his tenure lasted from 2010-2012 before his eventual hiring at USF (now head coach of Oregon).

All of this is to say, May is correct when he says the job has launched multiple coaching careers, and Warinner certainly has to be thinking the exact same thing.
