Mike Doss

Safety, Ohio State

Mike Doss was the quarterback of the Ohio State secondary from 2000-2002 and capped off his Buckeye career with a national championship after he was the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year and was named a consensus All-American. Doss came up with a clutch interception against Miami quarterback Ken Dorsey in the BCS Championship Game to help Ohio State secure the win and he was a winner in the NFL, winning Super Bowl XLI with the Indianapolis Colts.

I would want to play for a coach who was a winner everywhere he went and would help me get to the NFL and Doss fits that criteria. Having the entire offense in front of him, Doss had to have the mental acuity to read, diagnose and react to what he saw in front of him and with the game becoming more pass-oriented, having a safety as a head coach could limit the damage done through the air.
