Alma Mater Presbyterian College, 2009
Parker Fleming is in his second season at Ohio State as a quality control coach for special teams. Last year he helped the Buckeye special teams to national rankings of No. 2 in kickoff return defense, No. 6 in net punting, No. 8 in punt return defense and No. 10 in blocked kicks. The Buckeyes won Big Ten Conference and Rose Bowl championships and finished No. 3 in both major polls.
This is Fleming’s second position with the Buckeyes, having previously served as a graduate assistant coach during the 2012 and 2013 seasons when Ohio State had its sixth undefeated season in school history (12-0 in 2012) and won 24 consecutive games.
Fleming served as co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Texas State University in 2017. He was promoted to that position after one season following his work as wide receivers and special teams coach.
Fleming arrived at Texas State from James Madison, where he was the wide receivers coach. During his time with the Dukes, Fleming mentored All-CAA wide receiver Daniel Brown, who is currently a member of the Chicago Bears.
Fleming spent the 2012 and 2013 seasons working with Ohio State’s offense and special teams. Prior to that, he was at Capital University during the 2011 season and Decatur (Ga.) High School in 2010, coaching the quarterbacks at both stops.
A native of Atlanta, Ga., Fleming is a 2010 graduate of Presbyterian College with a degree in political science. He played quarterback at Presbyterian from 2007-09.
