He'll likely coach the linebackers, which is what interim head coach Luke Fickell was doing before Jim Tressel's resignation. A press conference is expected on Monday.

This is a really great feature at ESPN.com, a countdown of their top 50 players who were superstars in college football but never made it big in the NFL. There are players who had a few mediocre years, players who washed out entirely, and players who never even tried to make it as a pro. Sure, a few of the picks are option quarterbacks like J.C.
