Former Ohio State Quarterbacks Coach Corey Dennis Leaves Utah, Joins Ole Miss As Analyst

Former Ohio State quarterbacks coach Corey Dennis is on the move again this offseason. A source close to the program confirmed to the Columbus Dispatch on Friday that Dennis will be leaving his analyst position at Utah just over two weeks after being hired to join head coach Lane Kiffin’s staff and serve in the same role at Ole Miss. 

Dennis, who appeared on the Ole Miss football staff’s directory on Thursday, initially accepted his analyst role with Utah on Feb. 6 following his demotion from Ohio State’s staff in January. Dennis was stripped of his responsibilities as quarterbacks coach — a post he held since 2020 — and demoted into a “still-to-be-determined role with the program” on Jan. 19 to make room for now-former Ohio State offensive coordinator and current Boston College head coach Bill O’Brien, who left Columbus to lead the Golden Eagles just 21 days after Ohio State hired him. 

Dennis, the son-in-law of former Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer, now joins a Rebels program that is coming off a strong 11-2 campaign in 2023 that was capped by a 38-25 victory over No. 10 Penn State in the Peach Bowl. Ole Miss will be without its leading rusher from last season in 2024 in running back Quinshon Judkins, however, who joined the Buckeyes’ program via the transfer portal on Jan. 9.
