Ohio's defense celebrates Jelani Woseley's interception and touchdown in the second quarter against Gardner-Webb. The 'Cats are 3-0 for the first time in 35 years.

The Ohio Bobcats football team has found Pete Germano's replacement.

Ohio head coach Frank Solich announced Tuesday that former New Mexico State defensive line coach Jesse Williams has joined the Bobcat Football staff to coach the defensive line.

“We are very excited have Jesse join our coaching staff,” Solich told Ohio Athletics. “He is an outstanding coach, who understands our defense and is familiar with our staff. He brings a tremendous amount of experience and he will be a great asset to our program.”

The Aggies' defense allowed an average of 24.5 points per game and totaled 18 sacks last season.

“My family and I are so excited such to come to Ohio and work under such a quality head coach like Frank Solich,” Williams said in the release. “There is no better time than now to come be a part of the Ohio football program.”

Williams inherits a Bobcats' defensive line that forced 12.5 sacks and is still well intact. Tremayne Scott, Corey Hasting, Neal Huynh, Carl Jones and Nic Barber will all return for the Green-and-White next season.
