Contrasting College Football and Professional Offensive Coordinator Searches

The prevailing idea here is that OSU plans to bring in an experienced Offensive Coordinator (OC) for the upcoming season, although there is no clear statement from Day confirming this.

The current narrative suggests a preference for a candidate from the professional ranks, and I’m curious about the reasons behind this choice. Is it because professional coaches are perceived as superior technicians and overall better coaches?

On the flip side, someone with extensive experience in the college game would presumably have a deeper understanding of the game and recruiting. Perhaps it could leave a stronger impression on recruits, but it’s uncertain. I’m not advocating for either option; I just hope the chosen individual is exceptionally skilled. Any thoughts on this?
