Jeffers spent the last two seasons with the Buckeyes working under running backs coach Tony Alford, but was on Dilfer’s staff at Nashville (Tenn.) Lipscomb Academy prior to that.

This will be the first full-time coaching position at the collegiate level for both Jeffers and Patrick, who notably coached 2023 four-star cornerback commit Kayin Lee at Ellenwood (Ga.) Cedar Grove.
