In a move that is likely to send shockwaves through the Tri-state area recruiting scene it appears that Kerry Coombs will leave his post as the associate head coach at the University of Cincinnati to join Urban Meyer’s newly created staff at Ohio State.
Coombs, the longest tenured coach on the Bearcats’ staff, was also the defensive backs coach and special teams coordinator for UC. The biggest impact of his departure will come on the recruiting scene as he was key to Cincinnati’s recent success within the local area having served first under Brian Kelly and now Butch Jones.
"In respect to Kerry the only thing I can comment on is that he has chosen to take another position," Jones told BearcatReport.com. "We are very gracious for what he has brought to University of Cincinnati and our football program and I know it is a family decision for him and we respect that. I have a tremendous amount of respect for him and wish him all the best."
The 28-year coaching veteran had an .826 winning percentage during his tenure as the head football coach at Colerain High School, including a state Ohio Division I state championship.
Coombs will reportedly get an increase in salary of more than $100,000 per year as a member of the Buckeyes’ staff.
