Tucker was co-defensive coordinator
Tucker, a Cleveland native, is the latest addition to new coach Romeo Crennel's staff. Tucker coached the Buckeyes' defensive backs, serving as a co-defensive coordinator for Jim Tressel last season.
"Coaching at Ohio State has been an unbelievable experience and I will always have a special place in my heart for the Buckeyes and our national championship team," Tucker said. "To have the opportunity to work with Romeo Crennel is one I could not pass up."
Tucker played at Cleveland Heights High School and earned four letters at Wisconsin. Before coaching at OSU, he spent two years at Miami of Ohio and one at LSU under Nick Saban, now with the Dolphins.
