Report: Vrabel will join Ohio State staff

Despite saying last month that he still wanted to play pro football, Chiefs LB Mike Vrabel apparently will get into another line of work -- coaching at his alma mater for his one-time Ohio State roommate.

That’s the word from the Columbus Dispatch, which reports that Vrabel is expected to be named as an assistant coach to new Buckeyes coach Luke Fickell.

Lately, Vrabel has been busy in NFLPA-NFL negotiations, and it’d be a bit of a surprise if he actually retired from his 14-year career after starting all 16 games for Kansas City last year and considering how hard he’s worked on the labor front.

Plus, after attending Fickell’s introductory news conference in June, he told reporters, “Luke knows I still have time to play.”

But the Dispatch writes that a news conference is tentatively scheduled for Monday. Vrabel probably would be added as a linebacker coach, Fickell’s old assistant position under former coach Jim Tressel.

Maybe the other way around, topofstack.  Ohio State football is about a hundred times bigger than the Kansas City Chiefs.

Kinda like being an executive chef at the Ritz Carlton and deciding to leave to become a line cook at McDonalds.
