As first reported by’s Tom Dienhart, former Ohio State cornerback Ashton Youboty has been hired as the new cornerbacks coach at Purdue.

The 37-year-old Youboty played three seasons for the Buckeyes from 2003-05 and was named first-team All-Big Ten following a junior season in which he recorded 56 tackles, nine pass break ups and one interception.

After being selected by the Buffalo Bills in the third round of the 2006 NFL Draft, Youboty spent six seasons in the league with the Bills and Jacksonville Jaguars. He finished his career with 86 tackles, 10 pass break ups, six tackles for loss, two interceptions, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and one defensive touchdown in 49 games.

Youboty began his coaching career as a defensive quality control coach at Wisconsin in 2017 and was promoted to senior defensive analyst in 2019. He then accepted a job as the cornerbacks coach at Youngstown State in 2020, where he spent the last two seasons.

A 2006 Ohio State graduate with a degree in family resource management, Youboty also spent time as a volunteer in the Miami (Fla.) recruiting department while earning his master’s in management and mergers and acquisitions in 2017. He takes over for James Adams, who recently accepted a job as the safeties coach at Wake Forest after one season with the Boilermakers.
