Ohio State offensive coordinator/wide receivers coach Brian Hartline had to be hospitalized Sunday after crashing his UTV side-by-side vehicle.
The crash reportedly came in around 1:20 a.m. The all-terrain vehicle rolled over on Hartline’s property. The Delaware County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that Hartline was driving the vehicle at the time of the crash. Hartline and one other man were injured in the crash as both would be taken to Riverside Hospital for treatment.
The Ohio State Department of Athletics released the following statement:
“Ohio State assistant football coach Brian Hartline and a friend, unaffiliated with Ohio State, were transported to Riverside Hospital early this morning with non-life threatening injuries sustained in an ATV accident on his property. According to Hartline, he is hoping to be released from the hospital later this evening.”
Fortunately, Hartline said he is “doing well” and it appears he avoided any serious injuries.
Hartline did tweet from the hospital.
Here’s how social media responded:
The 36-year-old was promoted to offensive coordinator in January after finding success as the Buckeyes’ wide receivers coach. With his help, former Buckeyes receivers Garrett Wilson (10th), the 2022 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, and Chris Olave (11th) went back-to-back in the first round of the 2022 NFL draft to the Jets and Saints.
This month, Jaxon Smith-Njigba should be a high first-round pick.
Before his coaching career, Hartline was a star wide receiver at Ohio State before playing seven seasons in the NFL from 2009-15.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
