The B1G East Round-Up is back. This is typically a quiet time in the news for college football as programs prepare for spring ball but fear not, there’s still some news to share. Read on to find out about transfers, coaching hires (and the ending of a long career) and screws coming out of ankles (what fun!). Here is the latest on Ohio State and Michigan, click here for the rest of the B1G roundup.

 Ohio State

-The Buckeyes lost a couple of key assistants to the “coaching carousel.” Offensive coordinator Tom Herman became the head coach at the University of Houston and running backs coach Stan Drayton decided to take the same role with the Chicago Bears.

-After some speculation that IU’s running backs coach Deland McCullough was in the running for the job, Ohio State announced they had hired Notre Dame’s Tony Alford. Alford was in South Bend for six seasons (running backs coach, wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator).

-Lots of injury news coming out of Columbus as star running back Ezekiel Elliott will have surgery on his left wrist. Dave Biddle from Bucknuts wrote, “Elliott will need a second surgery on his left wrist, which was fractured during preseason camp last August.” Elliott should be 100% by the time the Buckeyes open training camp.

-Injured quarterbacks J.T. Barrett and Braxton Miller are on the mend. Barrett had successful surgery to remove screws from his ankle and Miller has begun throwing as he continues to recover from his shoulder injury. Both are expected to compete with Cardale Jones for the starting position.

Michigan

-IU fans might remember Keith Washington. The 3-star recruit was pursued by the Hoosiers but ended up choosing California-Berkeley. However, on National Signing Day, Washington flipped to Michigan without ever officially visiting Ann Arbor. Jim Harbaugh praised Washington during his Signing Day press conference, “He is a very, very humble person but a winner. I just really, really liked watching him play on tape right away…got a great, great feeling about him. You’re going to like him.”

-John O’Korn decided to transfer from the University of Houston to the University of Michigan. O’Korn had a successful 2013 season but saw his playing time dip in 2014. He is required to sit out the 2015 campaign and will have two seasons of eligibility remaining.

-T.J. Weist, a former offensive coordinator at UConn and 25-year coaching veteran, has joined Michigan’s coaching staff as a “senior offensive analyst.” I have no idea what that actually entails but he’s expected to mentor the Wolverines wide receivers.

-Desmond Morgan (linebacker) and Jabril Peppers (cornerback) have both been granted additional years of eligibility after suffering season-ending injuries in 2014. Both are expected to be starters for the Wolverines in 2015.
