He was named almost two weeks ago to take the place of the fired Zach Smith, who had been the lone remaining member of Urban Meyer’s original OSU staff in 2012.
Meyer was put on paid administrative leave Wednesday pending the outcome of an investigation into what he knew of the tumultuous relationship between Smith and his former wife, Courtney Smith, who were divorced in 2016.
Hartline served as a program assistant for a year and got to know the receivers well. This is his first job as a full-fledged assistant coach.
He was a receiver at OSU in mid-2000s, and was a nine-year NFL player before retiring.
