Ryan Crow joined the Ohio State football staff in January 2017 and will work with the team as a graduate assistant on defense.
A linebacker for coach Gregg Brandon at Bowling Green State University from 2007 through 2010, Crow was initially a walk-on but earned a scholarship and graduated from BGSU with his degree in exercise science in 2011.
He then moved on to the University of Florida as a strength intern for one spring and then to Purdue University, where he was an assistant strength and conditioning coach for the football and baseball teams in 2011-12. In 2012 headed back to the north where he was a graduate assistant for the Purdue offensive line and also worked in recruiting for two seasons.
Crow has spent the past three seasons at Baldwin Wallace. In 2014 he was offensive line coach, but he was promoted to offensive coordinator/offensive line coach – he was only 28 at the time – for the 2015 season and held the position for two years, until he joined the Ohio State coaching staff this year.
Crow is originally from Findlay, Ohio, and he is a graduate of Arcadia High School. He and his wife, Holly, reside in Worthington.
