COLUMBUS, Ohio – Brian Hartline, who coached a receiver unit this season whose cumulative statistical numbers alone would be school single season records for receptions, yards and touchdowns, has been elevated to permanent wide receiver’s coach by Ohio State coach Ryan Day after serving in an interim capacity this season.

 

Hartline just completed his second season with the Buckeyes. He was a quality control coach for the team throughout 2017 and then was named interim receivers coach in July of this year. Hartline is a 2009 Ohio State University graduate who spent seven seasons in the National Football League with six years as a Miami Dolphin and his final season with the Cleveland Browns.

 

“Brian is a terrific young coach and mentor to our players and I am thrilled he is on our staff permanently now,” Day, who takes over as Ohio State head coach Jan. 2, said. “Brian was displaying outstanding leadership qualities when he was a quality control coach, and his efforts coaching the wide receivers this season are a huge reason we are Big Ten champions and headed to the Rose Bowl.”

 

Led by three fifth-year senior co-captains, Parris Campbell, Johnnie Dixon and Terry McLaurin, and including fourth-year junior K.J. Hill, Ohio State’s receiver unit caught 291 passes this season for 4,211 yards and 43 touchdowns … totals that alone break the school single season marks of 287 receptions (set in 2017), 3,707 yards (2014) and 42 touchdowns (2014).

 

This year’s wide receiver room also became the first in school history to have four players with at least 1,000 career receiving yards. Entering the Rose Bowl, Campbell has 1,697 career receiving yards, Hill has 1,642, McLaurin has 1,219 and Dixon has 1,119.

 

Hartline joined the Ohio State staff in early 2017 after a terrific playing career in the NFL with the Dolphins between 2009-14 and Browns (2015). He played in 104 games with 73 starts, and had 344 career receptions for 4,766 yards and 14 touchdowns. His best seasons came in 2012 and 2013, when he combined to catch 150 passes for 2,099 yards for the Dolphins. He caught 30 or more passes in each of his seven NFL seasons.

 

Among former Buckeye receivers who played in the NFL, Hartline ranks high statistically when comparing them: he is fifth among NFL Buckeyes in yards, per catch average (13.9) and games started; sixth in games played and receptions; and seventh in touchdowns.

 

Hartline played for the Scarlet and Gray from 2005 through 2008 and was a part of four Big Ten championship teams – meaning he’s been with six Ohio State teams and has won six Big Ten titles. He also played an integral role in Ohio State reaching consecutive BCS National Championship games in 2006 and 2007.  In 2007, he caught a career-best 52 passes for 694 yards and six touchdowns. Hartline’s career numbers include 90 catches, 1,429 yards and 12 touchdowns.

 

Hartline graduated from Ohio State in spring 2009 with his degree in communications. He and his wife, Kara, have a young son, Brayden.
