BREAKING: Ohio State QB announces he is transferring to Miami

We already knew that Ohio State quarterback Tate Martell was planning to transfer and now we know the destination.

Just after midnight, Martell took to Twitter to announce he is transferring to Miami.

Martell served as the backup quarterback to Dwayne Haskins this past season, throwing for 269 yards and a touchdown.

Unless granted a waiver (unlikely), Martell will have to sit out the 2019 season and will be eligible to begin playing for Hurricanes in 2020.

Detroit Lions’ Fans: Chill out, the best OC candidate is still available

When news broke that Jim Bob Cooter would not be returning to the Detroit Lions in 2019, head coach Matt Patricia was immediately charged with what will be the most important move the team will need to make this offseason. Hiring a new offensive coordinator.

Within hours (maybe even sooner) of the news Cooter was not coming back, the speculation began as to who would be the best choice to replace him. There were reports Adam Gase was going to be fired by the Miami Dolphins (which he eventually was) and that he would be a top target for the Lions. Well, that may or may not have been the case, but Gase decided to take the head coaching job with the New York Jets.

Other possible candidates included Kliff Kingsbury (HC Arizona), Freddie Kitchens (HC Cleveland), Todd Monken (OC Cleveland), Nathanial Hackett (OC Green Bay), and Steve Sarkisian (OC Alabama).

As the announcements came that those coaches had taken other jobs, coupled with the Lions being silent about the matter, something predictable happened.

Many Lions’ fans began to panic.

Those fans started to post messages on social media saying the best candidates were just passing the Lions by and that Patricia and general manager Bob Quinn was going to have to settle for the last pick, which, of course, would end up being a failure.

Well, I have something to say about that…

CHILL OUT! THE BEST OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR CANDIDATE IS STILL AVAILABLE!!!
