As first reported by College Crosse’s Chris Jastrzembski, Cleveland State head coach Dylan Sheridan will be leaving his post to take an assistant position at Ohio State. That opening at Ohio State was left by Brad Ross leaving for the same position at Navy.
Sheridan has been the head coach at Cleveland State since 2015 and has led them through their first three seasons of play. Last season he led the Vikings to an 8-7 season. The Vikings defeated Marquette while giving Ohio State, Michigan, and Penn State a good run for their money.
He has built Cleveland State from the ground up and shown that success can be attained there. While they still don’t have a conference Sheridan has put the Vikings on the map as an emerging mid-major in the midwest.
Prior to taking the head coaching position at Cleveland State, Sheridan was the defensive coordinator at Princeton. He also made a stop at Denver as the defensive coordinator, coaching under one of the greatest coaches of all-time in Bill Tierney. Sheridan also an assistant at Lebanon Valley and Pfeiffer. In addition, he was the head coach of the Thailand National Team during the 2014 World Lacrosse Championships.
Sheridan joins an Ohio State squad that went 8-4 last season, missing the Big Ten tournament after a great start to their season. He will be leading a star-studded offense with players like Tre LeClair, Jackson Reid, and others coming back.
