Offensive coordinator Ed Warinner to coach from the press box against Michigan

The Buckeyes are making a pretty big change for the last regular season game of the year.

In the last game of the regular season, it appears as if the Ohio State Buckeyes are going to try something new with the offensive play-calling. Despite having spent the entirety of the season to this point on the sidelines, offensive coordinator and offensive line coach Ed Warinner will coach from the press box for Saturday's game against the Michigan Wolverines, per Matt Barnes of NBC Columbus.

It's a curious move, considering offensive line coaches often consult their linemen during the game, but the Buckeye coaching staff clearly feels that there needs to be a change in the way the offense is run, following the disappointing performance against the Michigan State Spartans.

Only time will tell if the decision makes a tangible difference, but while it's a risky move to make a change like this so late in the year, it might be worth a try following last week's performance.
