Former Ohio State football coach finds a new home

Perry Eliano briefly served as Ohio State's safeties coach in 2022 and 2023, but after his original contract expired, the Buckeyes made no move to re-hire the defensive backs coach. Expectations were high for him, as Ohio State had poached him from Cincinnati, where he was cornerbacks coach and had developed stars like Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner, but apparently Ryan Day was not happy with the product produced in Columbus during Eliano's two-year tenure.

Although he's waited an extremely long time for his new job, he won't have to move far, as it was recently announced that he will be the new cornerbacks coach in Toledo. The Texas native is making his way through Ohio, as he previously stopped in Bowling Green before moving on to Cincinnati and Ohio State. Now he's moving on to another MAC school in Toledo.

He has big shoes to fill after Corey Parker, who transferred to Illinois, did an excellent job.
