Ryan Day
Co-Offensive Coordinator / Quarterbacks
The Ohio State University

Ryan Day, quarterbacks coach under Chip Kelly this past season for the San Francisco 49ers and two years ago for the Philadelphia Eagles, joined the Ohio State coaching staff in January as co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

Day comes to Ohio State with 15 seasons of coaching experience, including two years in the National Football League and 10 seasons as a Division I assistant coach. He coached receivers for a year under Al Golden at Temple (2006) and for five seasons at Boston College (2007-11). Day has three years of offensive coordinator experience working under Steve Addazio; in 2012 he ran the offense and coached receivers at Temple University and in 2013 and 2014 he was quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator at Boston College. He started his coaching career in 2002 as tight ends coach at the University of New Hampshire.

Day also has experience working with Ohio State coach Urban Meyer; in 2005 he was a graduate assistant coach during Meyer's first season with the Florida Gators.

In 2014, Day's Boston College offense ranked second in the ACC and 21st nationally with 254.4 rushing yards per game, and in 2013 Eagle running back Andre Williams rushed for more than 2,000 yards on his way to unanimous All-America honors while being named a finalist for the Heisman Trophy.

Day's Boston College assistant coach experiences -- he has coached there on three separate occasions -- include the 2007 season when quarterback Matt Ryan threw for over 4,500 prior to becoming the third overall pick in the 2008 draft.

In the NFL, Day worked with Colin Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert in 2016 with the 49ers and he helped Sam Bradford to a record-setting 2015 season with the Eagles as he completed 65 percent of his passes -- an Eagles single-season record -- and threw for 3,725 yards. Both figures were career highs at the time for Bradford.

Day is a native of Manchester, NH. He was a three-year starting quarterback at New Hampshire when Kelly was offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. He was a team captain as a senior and earned his degree in business administration in 2002. He has a master's in administrative studies from Boston College (2004).

Day, and his wife, Christina, have three children: Ryan Jr., Grace and Ourania.
