Ohio State QB Barrett said coaching changes were needed

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Quarterback J.T. Barrett said coaching changes were needed at Ohio State and getting new offensive coordinators played into his decision to return for his final year of eligibility.

During the Ohio State basketball game on Sunday, Barrett accepted the Chicago Tribune Silver Football award as the Big Ten's best player. He said bringing in new offensive coaches was a positive move because "sometimes we get set in our ways."
