Watch: Ohio State coach nailed in the head by field goal attempt

Thursday December 31st, 2015

Ohio State is preparing to take on Notre Dame in one of the most anticipated non-CFP bowl games of the postseason, and all of that focusing on one team can give coaches a headache.

Another thing that can give coaches a headache is when a kicker fires a ball at his head at point blank range, which is what happened to Buckeyes offensive coordinator Ed Warinner at practice on Wednesday in a video shared by quarterback Cardale Jones.

That looks like it hurt a lot, but Warinner has been playing and coaching football since 1979 so he should really know better than to walk in front of a kicker in the middle of an attempt.

The tweet also led to wonderful exchange in Jones’s mentions, with a follower questioning his knowledge of his Ohio State teammates, and kicker Sean Nuernberger chiming in.
