Ohio State Pass Rushing Specialist Brandon Jordan Reportedly No Longer On Staff

Ohio State pass rushing specialist Brandon Jordan has reportedly left the program after spending just under three months in the position, according to a report from Letterman Row on Wednesday. 

Jordan, 35, was hired by Ohio State on Feb. 22 after working in the same role at Michigan State and with the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks across the past two seasons. He spent his brief time with the program working alongside defensive line coach and associate head coach Larry Johnson, providing guidance to the Buckeye rushmen all spring. 

Jordan came to Ohio State with some pedigree, having served as a football coach at the high school, college and professional level since 2012. Aside from his roles with the Seahawks and Spartans, he also served as a graduate assistant at McKendree University in 2013 and a defensive line coach at Austin Peay from 2014-15, among other roles. 

He is also the CEO of Brandon Jordan Trench Performance, a football training program that has welcomed more than 200 NFL players, including defensive linemen Jadeveon Clowney, former Buckeye Cameron Hayward, Chandler Jones, Von Miller and T.J. Watt, among others. 

It is currently unclear if Ohio State would hire another assistant to fill the now vacant role left by Jordan. The Buckeyes’ defensive line is still led by Johnson, but graduate assistant LaAllan Clark, who is entering his second season with the program, could also take on a larger role if called upon.
