P.J. Fleck has picked Ohio State’s Ed Warinner to be the Gophers next offensive line coach, a Gophers source confirmed Tuesday. The news was first reported by Sports Illustrated’s Pete Thamel.

Warinner, 55, worked as Ohio State’s offensive coordinator/tight ends coach this past season, but Ohio State hired former Indiana coach Kevin Wilson to fill those roles Tuesday. Warinner had previously been the Buckeyes’ offensive coordinator/offensive line coach.

Warinner has also coached the offensive line at Notre Dame, Kansas, Illinois, Army and Air Force. Some of his honors include 2014 FootballScoop offensive line coach of the year, and 2014 Top 25 recruiter.
