Current Buckeye assistant Darrell Hazell will be announced tomorrow as the next head coach of the Kent State University Golden Flashes. This is Hazell’s first head coaching job after 23 yrs of coaching at schools like Rutgers, WVU, and Western Michigan.
Hazell has been at Ohio State since 2005 when he came in as the WR’s coach. He has made a splash in the recruiting circles as well as helping in the offensive game plan, so much so that his name was thrown around some as the one that was actually calling plays, (we all know those are closer to the Vest).
This is a good step for Hazell as being the man in charge. I look for Kent State to turn it up in the recruiting circles within the MAC and become a team that makes some nice strides toward perennial MAC champions.
It will be interesting to see where Ohio State goes from here- it would be nice to grab a very good recruiter to fill in for one of Hazell’s strengths.
