Ohio State coaches got up early and drove 3 hours to attend Combine workouts

Say what you may about the Ohio State Buckeyes, but it’s clear that the football team’s coaching staff is devoted to its players.

According to a tweet from Fox Sports’ Bruce Feldman, Buckeyes offensive coordinator Ed Warinner and three other assistants woke up early and made the three-hour drive from Columbus to Indianapolis in order to watch the 14 ex-Buckeyes participating in the Combine this year.

That’s simply an incredible gesture on the coaches’ end. This is a busy time of year for Ohio State football, what with planning next season as well as conducting spring practices ahead of the eventual spring game, but Warinner and some others put that aside for today and made the trip just to support some of their ex-players.

It just goes to show that once you’re a Buckeye, you’re always a Buckeye and thus family in the eyes of the staff. Hopefully, the coaches’ presence gives Ohio State’s players an extra bounce in their step during workouts.
