Graduate Assistant -- Offense
Corey Dennis is in his second season as an Ohio State graduate assistant coach on offense and this is his third season overall with the program. He works alongside co-offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Ryan Day mentoring a talented corps of signal callers that includes J.T. Barrett, a candidate for all the major awards in 2017, Joe Burrow, Dwayne Haskins and Tate Martell.
A former high school receiver and quarterback for his Troy, Ala., hometown team Charles Henderson High, Dennis was the first player in school history to rush and pass for more than 1,000 yards when he did so as a senior in 2010. The team captain was then recruited to Georgia Tech as a wide receiver but ultimately ended up doing much more for coach Paul Johnson's Yellow Jackets. He played in the defensive secondary, he played receiver and he was a key special team's performer between 2011 and 2014 and finished his career by playing in all 54 games for Tech teams that won two ACC Coastal Division titles and played in four bowl games.
Dennis graduated from Georgia Tech December 2014 and joined the Ohio State staff as an intern in time for the 2015 spring season.
Dennis is married to the former Nicki Meyer, who also is a Georgia Tech graduate and who was a four-year student-athlete with the Georgia Tech volleyball team. The couple resides in Dublin, Ohio, with their young son, Troy.
