OSU officially hires Beck, Warinner promoted to coordinator

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Ohio State coach Urban Meyer says Ed Warinner has been promoted to offensive coordinator and Tim Beck, offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Nebraska the past four years, has joined the staff as co-offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach.

Meyer announced the hirings Wednesday.

Warinner, co-offensive coordinator the past three years in addition to his offensive line duties, has been instrumental to offensive units that have set school and Big Ten records.

Meyer confirmed the Beck hiring after it was reported earlier this week, before Ohio State won the national championship with a 42-20 victory over Oregon on Monday night.

Beck, an Ohio native, has a 26-year coaching resume that includes 16 seasons in the college ranks and another 10 seasons in high school coaching, including nine years as a high school head coach.
