Former Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer adds another Buckeye to his staff after previously hiring player development coach Ryan Stamper.

This time around, it is Anthony Schlegel, who announced on 97.1 the Fan that he is going to the Jaguars as their head strength and conditioning coach.

Schlegel is a former linebacker that played at Ohio State from 2003-05 and was selected in the third round, pick No. 76 overall by the New York Jets. After a brief stint with the Jets and the Cincinnati Bengals, Schlegel ultimately returned to Ohio State  as an assistant strength and conditioning coach.

The highlight moment of his tenure came in 2014 when the Buckeyes took on Cincinnati. A fan stormed the field, and Schlegel took that personally, taking him down in dramatic fashion.
