USA TODAY Sports/Joseph Maiorana"He is the hardest-working recruiting head coach Ive ever seen, he said. "I thought I was like off the charts. I was not even close. Hes a machine. Just so passionate about it. Thats what drives the recruiting at Ohio State. He sets the standard here. Coachs best attribute is that he dives right in. Hes in the middle of relationships with every one and hes current on everything.He set the bar to me of what a head coach needs to do as a recruiter." "My wife told me I remember the happiest you were was when you were the defensive coordinator coaching your kids at Miami, he said. "I think what happens is when youre the head coach, theres so much thats on your mind all the time.When youre the head coach, youre in charge of every support person of every person that touches the program, everybody that touches the coaches, the players."
