Marcus Freeman will be stepping out of professional football after finding out he has an enlarged heart. Doctors informed him that he had a heart problem in February after taking a physical.

“It was hard to hear that football was being taken away, but life is much bigger than that for me,” Freeman said earlier this week. “Sooner or later you’re going to be done. Even though I can’t play anymore I still have a love and a passion for it. I’ll just turn the page to the next chapter in my life.”

Any good news to this? Well, he will be rejoining the Buckeyes staff this fall as a graduate assistant. Future defensive coach anyone?

“Coach (Jim) Tressel gave me the opportunity to be on the staff,” he said. “It’s a lot different than playing, but it’s exciting because it gives me the chance to stay close to football.”
