Kerry Coombs Ohio State

Ohio State gave up a whopping 66 points in its first two games of the 2021 season. The struggles led to defensive coordinator Kerry Coombs being demoted, but the longtime coach is turning the unfortunate change into a positive.

Ohio State head coach Ryan Day stripped Coombs of playcalling duties and handed them to secondary coach Matt Barnes after the Buckeyes’ 35-28 loss to Oregon in Week 2. Coombs admitted the change has been the “hardest stretch of my professional career,” but he is certainly not wallowing.

Coombs delivered a passionate message this week about advsersity. You’ll understand why it went viral when you hear it.

“It’s easy to be a brother when it’s 56-17 on Saturday afternoon. It’s hard to be a brother when you face adversity. It’s hard,” Coombs said. “If you’re here for the other men on this team, the other coaches and players on this team … if that’s truly what you believe then you’re here with them come heck or high water. You’re here fighting and struggling and scrapping.

“I love those kids. I love those kids in that locker room and I love the men on this team. I love the men I work with and I love Ohio State.”

Coombs is in his second stint as an assistant coach at Ohio State. He was with the program from 2012-2017 before leaving to spend two seasons as a defensive backs coach for the Tennessee Titans. The 60-year-old then returned to work under Day last year.

If you’re familiar with Coombs, you know how enthusiastic he is about his job. Coombs once went viral for the way he unloaded on a kicker during practice. You can understand why players would respond well to him.
