Dwayne Haskins is NFL-bound after one spectacular season as Ohio State’s starting quarterback. The third-year sophomore who rewrote the school record book had been expected to enter the draft and is a projected first-round pick. Ohio State is replacing defensive coordinator Greg Schiano with a pair of new defensive coaches, one of them a longtime assistant from rival Michigan. Former Wolverines defensive line coach Greg Mattison and former San Francisco 49ers assistant Jeff Hafley will join the Buckeyes as co-defensive coordinators. The significant shake-up to the coaching staff comes at the conclusion of Ryan Day’s first week as the program’s new head coach.
Kicker Cody Parkey has been getting roasted for missing the potentially game-winning field goal in the Chicago Bears’ playoff loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. It turns out he wasn’t totally to blame.

The lineman barely got a finger on the ball, but it changed the trajectory enough that the kick hit the upright, dropped down to the crossbar and then out.
