Adam Scheier is in his first season with the Ohio State football coaching staff and will work as a quality control coach for kicking.
A 21-year collegiate coaching veteran, Scheier came to Ohio State after working the past eight seasons for Dave Clawson at two schools; five seasons at Bowling Green between 2009 and 2013 and the past three seasons at Wake Forest. He was special teams coordinator and tight ends coach at each school. And when Clawson left Bowling Green for the Wake Forest job in 2013, Scheier was named interim head coach at BGSU for the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl game against Pitt.
A 1995 graduate of Dartmouth with a degree in psychology, Scheier was a four-year letterman for the Big Green and earned special teams player of the year honors as a senior. He began his coaching career immediately following graduation, assisting with the Dartmouth secondary in 1996. He spent three years at Columbia, coaching the strong safeties and outside linebackers while earning a master's degree in education.
A two-year stint at Princeton, coaching special teams and wide receivers, preceded a seven-year tenure at Lehigh, where Scheier was special teams coordinator all seven years with three years coaching running backs and four seasons coaching wide receivers.
Scheier and his wife, Erica, have four children: daughters Callie, Riley and Maddie; and son, Brady.
