Ohio State cornerbacks coach Tim Beckman will be the Cowboys' new defensive coordinator in 2007. As reported here earlier, the Cowboys have been taking their sweet time in finding someone to fill the all-important coordinator position. Apparently they've finally found their man as Beckman will join Mike Gundy's coaching staff.
We could talk about how poorly Buckeye defensive backs played in the national championship game against Florida, but with them 15 yards off the ball each play it seems like they were never really on the field. In all fairness he was able to coach up a group of middling recruits into some of the Big Ten's best ball hawks over the last two seasons.
He'll be in good company as the defensive counterpart to awesomely named Cowboy offensive coordinator Larry Fedora. Fedora was last seen doing something no other Ohio State coach could do, taking it to a legitimate SEC defense. His Cowboy offense scored 34 points and rolled up 419 total yards against Alabama in the Independence Bowl.
