Burrow Steps Down

Ohio Football’s Jimmy Burrow announced his retirement from the program after almost fifteen years as the Bobcat’s defensive coordinator.

Frank Solich, the Bobcat’s head coach, announced that the program’s linebacker coach, Ron Collins, is taking over the position.

Burrow has tallied 106 victories since his 2005 defense coordinator arrival, had 10 bowl game appearances and captured four MAC East Division titles.

Before taking a position with the Bobcats, Burrow was a coach at Washington State and Iowa State.

Burrow began coaching after his own football career came to a close. He played at the collegiate level at Nebraska, and then was chosen in the eighth round to play for the Green Bay Packers.

Burrow and his wife, Robin, have three children. Two sons played football at Nebraska and his youngest, Joe, is the starting quarterback at Louisiana State University.
