1984 Media Guide: Bill Myles has been in charge of Ohio State tackles and tight ends since joining the Buckeye staff in March, 1977. He was one of two assistants to be retained from the previous staff by Coach Earle Bruce.

Myles has done an exceptional job of developing talent at Ohio State. Chris Ward, Keith Ferguson, Joe Lukens, Bill Roberts and John Frank, are some of the top Buckeyes to develop under Myles.

A native of Kansas City, Myles graduated from Drake University in 1962. As an undergraduate, he played center and linebacker in football.

Myles began a coaching career as a high school assistant in 1962. In 1965, he became a head coach. In four year at Lincoln High and three years at Southeastern High, Myles’ teams had a 45-20-3 record.

In 1972, Myles went to the University of Nebraska as assistant freshman coach and in 1975 moved to defense as linebacker coach.
