“Corey is a talented young coach and someone I’ve worked closely alongside for three seasons,” Ohio State head coach Ryan Day said in a press release. “He knows our system and he knows how we teach. I think he is going to allow us to develop some continuity in the quarterback room, and that’s important. I also believe that he is going to be an excellent recruiter for us.”

Dennis was a captain while playing for the Charles Henderson Trojans. As a senior in 2011, Dennis committed to play football at Georgia Tech University under former head coach Paul Johnson. Under Johnson, Dennis played wide receiver, played in the defensive secondary and on special teams.

Dennis became Charles Henderson’s first player to throw for 1,000 yards and run for 1,000 yards.

Dennis’ career with Georgia Tech began in 2011 and finished up in 2014. Following his time with the Yellow Jackets, Dennis joined the Buckeyes as an intern prior to the start of the 2015 season.
