Marcus Freeman is entering his third season as Cincinnati’s Defensive Coordinator. Bearcats had the 11th ranked defense in 2018, allowing just 28 TDs (8th in the country). Freeman worked at Ohio State, Kent State and Purdue before reuniting with Luke Fickell. . Before he got into coaching, Freeman was a dominant linebacker at Ohio State. He was a 2x All Second Team Big Ten player. He started 37 games between 2004-2008. 2007 was his high for tackles, with 109 total. In 2007 and 2008, he recorded 9.5 sacks each year. His only 2 INTs came in 2006 and he forced 2 fumbles in 2007. . He was a 5th round pick in the 2009 NFL Draft by the Bears, but never played a game in the NFL. He was waived before the season started and signed contracts with Bills and Texans too, but an enlarged heart condition, found on one of his physicals, forced him to retire. . Freeman was listed at #24 on @theathletichq list of assistant coaches who could become head coach soon. Some Ohio or Michigan MAC school would benefit greatly from pursuing Freeman in the future. . . . #cincitypride #cincinnati #nati #bearcats #bearcatspride #bearcatsnation #cincinnatibearcats #gobearcats #ucbearcats #uc #cincinnatifootball #bearcatsfootball #marcusfreeman #football
