Duffie’s hiring should complete an OSU staff that has seen plenty of turnover during the offseason.

New offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich replaced Todd Monken, who was hired as Southern Miss’ head coach. Jason Ray replaced inside receivers coach Doug Meacham, who became Houston’s offensive coordinator. Joe Bob Clements was hired as defensive line coach, helping fill the void left by Bill Young, who was not retained. Additionally, Glenn Spencer was elevated to defensive coordinator.
