The news just keeps flying with all the changes forthcoming with Ryan Day’s defensive coaching staff. Reportedly out are Al Washington and Kerry Coombs, and in is Cincinnati cornerbacks coach Perry Eliano as the new safeties coach, and now this.

According to Austin Ward of Lettermen Row, former Ohio State captain and Jacksonville Jaguars‘ secondary coach Tim Walton will be joining Day’s staff as the secondary coach for OSU. Others have also corroborated the news.

Walton is a native of Columbus, Georgia, and spent the last 13 seasons in the NFL. During that time, he’s worked on defensive staffs with the Detroit Lions defensive backs), St. Louis Rams (defensive coordinator), New York Giants (cornerbacks coach), and Jacksonville Jaguars (cornerbacks coach). He was on Urban Meyer’s staff last season.

It’s not just his NFL pedigree that is noteworthy. Walton has a ton of coaching experience at the collegiate level and played for Ohio State from 1990-1993. He was a team captain during his senior season.

Ohio State has yet to confirm any of these moves that have been reported on Thursday, but as soon as we have something official, we’ll be on top of it.
