E161: Ryan Day – Buckeye Football’s New Head Coach
On the same day that legendary coach Urban Meyer announced his retirement – Dec. 4, 2018 – Ryan Day was named to succeed him. As an NFL quarterbacks coach, Day worked with Colin Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert in 2016 with the 49ers and he helped Sam Bradford to a record-setting 2015 season with the Eagles as he completed 65 percent of his passes – an Eagles single-season record – and threw for 3,725 yards. Both figures were career highs at the time for Bradford. In addition to his two NFL seasons as a quarterbacks coach, Day has 15 years of collegiate coaching experience, including offensive coordinator positions at Temple and Boston College, as well as positions with Florida – as a graduate assistant under Meyer – and at his alma mater, New Hampshire. He coached receivers for a year under Al Golden at Temple University (2006) and for five seasons at Boston College (2007-11). Day worked three years as Steve Addazio’s offensive coordinator: in 2012 he ran the offense and coached receivers at Temple and in 2013 and 2014 he was quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator at Boston College. In 2014, Day’s Boston College offense ranked second in the ACC and 21st nationally with 254.4 rushing yards per game, and in 2013 Eagle running back Andre Williams rushed for more than 2,000 yards on his way to unanimous All-America honors while being named a finalist for the Heisman Trophy. As an assistant coach he coached there on three separate occasions – one including the 2007 season when quarterback Matt Ryan threw for over 4,500 prior to becoming the third overall pick in the 2008 draft. Day is a native of Manchester, NH. He was a three-year starting quarterback at New Hampshire when Chip Kelly was offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. He was a team captain as a senior and earned his degree in business administration in 2002. He has a master’s in administrative studies from Boston College (2004). Day, and his wife, Christina, who uses the nickname “Nina,” have three children: Ryan Jr. or “RJ”, Grace and Ourania. Follow Ryan on Twitter @ryandaytime

E158: Matt Iseman – Host of American Ninja Warrior, Doctor, Actor, Comedian, and Celebrity Apprentice
Life is short, do what makes you happy.” That’s the advice that Matt got from his Dad-a world renowned physician-when Matt quit medicine to pursue stand up comedy. And those words still guide Matt today. He talks ninjas, tells jokes around the world and, in general, proves laughter is the best medicine. Perhaps best known as the host of the THREE TIME Emmy nominated “American Ninja Warrior” and being named the newest Celebrity Apprentice, the Boston Globe has said of Matt, “The best part about American Ninja Warrior, hands down, is when bro-host Matt Iseman roars the show’s title.” He also helms the latest spinoff, American Ninja Warrior Junior, on Universal Kids (it’s their highest rated show ever) and he headed up the spinoff, “ANW: Ninja vs Ninja” on the USA Network. Matt hosted Evel Live on History, the highest rated cable special of 2018 and makes regular visits to the Today Show. His ongoing battle with Rheumatoid Arthritis transformed him into a strong supporter of the Arthritis Foundation, the charity he’s represented while winning Celebrity Apprentice. Yes, Arnold Schwarzenegger considers him a celebrity. For his work over the past decade and a half, Matt was named the 2018 “Arthritis Warrior of the Year.” And his battle with Renal Cell Carcinoma has made him a spokesperson for the American Cancer Society. You can catch Matt having fun on Lip Sync Battle and Hollywood Game Night in 2019, and he’s frequently hanging out with Pickler and Ben. Dr. Matt was a regular on Hallmark’s Home & Family, sharing his medical expertise and his unique lifestyle tips. His hosting has already earned him an Emmy Award on Clean House. He also hosted Sports Soup on Versus and Scream Play on E!. He’s starred in countless commercials, numerous sitcoms and Transformers 2.
