Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio will name Jim Bollman as the Spartans’ offensive coordinator, according to a source.

Bollman was named offensive line coach on Darrell Hazell’s staff at Purdue in January. He was offensive line coach and running game coordinator at Boston College in 2012 after spending 11 years at Ohio State as offensive coordinator and line coach.

He will replace Dan Roushar, who left for the New Orleans Saints.

Bollman and Dantonio worked alongside one another from 2001-03 when Dantonio was defensive coordinator at Ohio State. Those three Buckeye teams went 31-7, including a 13-0 season and a BCS National Championship in 2002.
