Everett Withers comes to Ohio State after holding the interim head coaching title at North Carolina last season. Withers was suddenly thrust into the situation after the firing of Butch Davis right before the start of the season, but he still managed to do a serviceable job, leading the Tar Heels to a 7-6 record.
Withers has held the title of defensive coordinator at numerous schools, including North Carolina, Minnesota and Louisville, and he's also spent some time as a defensive assistant in the NFL, coaching for both the Tennessee Titans and the New Orleans Saints.
In 2009, Withers' defense at North Carolina ranked sixth nationally in total defense and 13th in scoring defense.
Withers will team up with Luke Fickell to share the defensive coordinator responsibilities, and he'll also hold the title of assistant head coach.
