COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Ohio State has hired San Francisco 49ers assistant Ryan Day as quarterbacks coach.

Day was hired Monday to replace co-offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Tim Beck, who is expected to join former Buckeyes offensive coordinator Tom Herman’s staff at Texas.

Questions about Beck’s future at Ohio State arose even before the Buckeyes were beaten by Clemson 31-0 in the College Football Playoff on Saturday. Quarterback J.T. Barrett and the passing game struggled this season against good defenses and looked terrible against the Tigers.

Day comes to Ohio State with 15 years of coaching experience, spending last season as quarterbacks coach under Chip Kelly at San Francisco. He spent the previous season with the Philadelphia Eagles after stints at Temple and Boston College.
