Mike Yurcich is indeed headed to Columbus where he’ll help coordinate Ohio State’s passing attack.

The Buckeyes made official Wednesday what has been reported for the past 48 hours: Yurcich, Oklahoma State’s offensive coordinator the last six seasons, is leaving OSU for tOSU. His official title is the team’s passing game coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

“I am really excited to announce that Mike is joining the Ohio State staff,” Ohio State coach Ryan Day said in a statement. “Mike is not only an Ohioan coming home, but he is also an extremely talented coach who has enjoyed success throughout his career. His Oklahoma State offenses have been among the most proficient in college football and I look forward to welcoming and introducing Mike and his family to our staff, players and community.”

It comes with a hefty raise, too. Yurcich made $800,000 last season at OSU, and his new contract with Ohio State will pay him $950,00 annually — well higher than Oklahoma State has ever paid an assistant coach.

With Gundy officially on the hunt for his next OC, expect a wide-ranging search that includes internal candidates Josh Henson and Kasey Dunn, as well as external candidates with OSU ties like Bodie Reeder, Todd Monken and a handful of others.
