Football: Ohio defensive coordinator accepts position at Memphis

Spence Nowinsky's tenure at Ohio was a brief but successful one that has officially ended. Ohio's former defensive coordinator accepted an assistant defensive coordinator and defensive line coach position at Memphis, according to a report from the team's website.

Before Nowinsky's arrival, Ohio allowed over 30 points per game in 2021. In 2022, Ohio made slight improvements before becoming one of the best defenses at the group of five level in 2023. Ohio allowed a MAC-low 15.8 points per game in 2023. Ohio's defense was an essential aspect of the team, winning 10 games for the second-straight season for the first time in program history.

With the spring game approaching, Ohio may opt to make an internal hire.
