Ohio State Head Football Coach Search Gets Professional Recruiting Assistance
Larkspur, CA – June 2, 2011 – Accolo, Inc., the leading Elevated RPO company, today announced that it has voluntarily initiated a search for the next Head Coach for Ohio State’s football team for the 2012 season.
In an unprecedented move, Accolo is unofficially supporting the effort to find the next Ohio State Head Football Coach in the spirit of fairness and accountability, especially for the NCAA and Michigan fans.
“Buckeye fans worldwide value winning over everything else, and finding a head coach who can deliver another national championship is a top priority.” said John Younger, Accolo’s CEO. “As a University of Notre Dame graduate, I have personally experienced the pain associated with finding a new head football coach many, many times and feel for every member of the Buckeye nation. “It’s highly likely that this entire issue with NCAA compliance was engineered by Michigan fans trying to level the playing field”. In spite of the outstanding NCAA investigation, we remain confident and optimistic that we can help identify a great head coach.”
“I was stunned and amazed that Ohio State memorabilia would be worth anything to anyone.” expressed a prominent Michigan graduate who chose to remain anonymous. “Washing anything with one of their red jerseys is a nightmare, unless you really like wearing pink!”
The tattoo and auto industry in the greater Columbus area are highly supportive of the search for the next Ohio State head coach, and look forward to personalized consultations with the new coach as part of the recruiting process.
Serious and qualified candidates will be forwarded to the Athletic Director, really.

Ohio State Football Head Coach – Win More…Tattoo Less
You are a great coach. Now it’s your turn to lead one of the most successful college football programs in the history of the sport. With seven (7) National Championship titles and thirty six (36) Big Ten Conference Championship titles, leading the Buckeyes will be the crowning achievement to your stellar football coaching career.
Fans love you, players respect you and competitors fear you. Your championships, your college and professional team victories define you, and now it’s time to make your lasting mark on the sport you love. From its inauspicious beginning in 1890 when Ohio State’s first football team lost its first home game to University of Wooster, it grew to be a powerhouse in 1935 when the squad went 7-1, with its sole loss to Notre Dame.
As the Ohio State Head Coach, not only will you lead the team to victory and fully comply with all NCAA rules even when they do not make sense, you will carry on the rich traditions of the program. Watching the seniors push the blocking sled around the field for Senior Tackle before the Michigan game, winning the wooden turtle trophy and handing out miniature pairs of golden football pants are only a few of the events that you will lead. Perhaps you can be the first coach to participate in the newest Ohio State football tradition, the victory tattoo.
Based on your experience as an NFL or college football coach, you know the details of this job well. Your proven ability to recruit top players, direct all aspects of training, select and manage the coaching staff, get the most out of the media, make the hard decisions on the field, oversee the budget and work as an integral member of the athletic department make you a star in any organization. Best of all, enjoy the ambiance and magic of Mirror Lake in the spring and the horseshoe in the fall. Your enthusiasm and conviction are palpable, and Ohio State needs you!
Ohio State offers competitive salary and benefits. In addition to completing this application, the selection process includes being reviewed and selected by the Athletic Director and other members of the interview team.
Accolo is UNOFFICIALLY supporting the effort to fill this job in the spirit of teamwork. Buckeye alumni and friends value choice and opportunity, so this is your chance to be considered even if you are not currently known to the university or athletic department. Serious candidates will be forwarded to the Athletic Director.
