Mike Vrabel Retires, Headed to Ohio State

After Ohio State vacated their wins for the 2010 season and head coach Jim Tressel resigned, the Buckeyes have made another coaching change. Mike Vrabel, an Ohio State alumnus and football standout, will be the newest assistant coach at the university.


Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Mike Vrabel will retire from the NFL and be named an assistant coach at Ohio State on Monday, sources told The Columbus Dispatch on Saturday night.

Luke Fickell, the Buckeyes' former defensive coordinator and linebackers coach, was promoted to head coach on May 30 after Jim Tressel resigned. According to The Dispatch, Fickell and Vrabel were roommates during their time together at Ohio State.

The three-time Super Bowl champion is also a two-time Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year recipient. Vrabel played for Ohio State from 1993-1996, and still holds the school career record for sacks and tackles for loss. He played in the NFL for 14 seasons; all three of his Super Bowl victories came as a member of the New England Patriots. Vrabel was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers and finished his career with the Kansas City Chiefs.
