The 2018 college football season came to a close a few weeks ago as the Clemson Tigers dismantled the Alabama Crimson Tide in the national title game. Following the close of the season, several programs exchanged coaches and made significant changes to their staffs.

The biggest transition came when Urban Meyer announced his retirement from Ohio State.

Former offensive coordinator Ryan Day takes over as the team's new head coach as the Buckeyes seem primed to compete at the highest level yet again.
