HARRISONBURG, Va. (AP) - James Madison has hired Ohio State assistant coach Everett Withers as its football coach.
Athletic director Jeff Bourse made the announcement Friday night. He says Withers returned to Ohio and will remain with the Buckeyes through the Orange Bowl against Clemson on Jan. 3 before transitioning fulltime to the Dukes.
Withers has spent two years at Ohio State, helping lead the Buckeyes on a school-record 24-game winning streak and a 24-1 record overall.
The 26-coaching veteran has divided his time between the college and professional ranks. His college stops include North Carolina, Minnesota and Texas, among others. In the NFL, he spent six years with the Tennessee Titans and also spent a season with the New Orleans Saints.
