Many times when a head coach leaves, he will take assistants including the RB coach, but don't count on it here. Oregon's RB coach is Gary Campbell, who's son's medical problems are astounding (see link below and key portion of article) - on a ventilator for all 28 years of his life. Campbell has been at Oregon for 30 years. He is not looking to leave, so the new HC is key, right? Well, it would not be surprising for Oregon to promote their OC, who would keep Campbell (the RB coach). So Wilson's stays committed to Oregon, right? Well.... the reason they will probably promote their OC is that they aren't likely to recruit in a major HC when there are clearly "significant" NCAA sanctions looming. Sanctions have to weigh on Wilson's mind. So where there's smoke on Wilson thinking about being a Buckeye, there may be fire...
Link and some key text if you want some 'hard' info:
EUGENE, Ore. -- Gary Campbell has a plane to catch. He's flying to Florida later in the afternoon to see a running back recruit, but first he has to swing by his house to pack and say hello/goodbye to the toughest kid he's ever met.
Campbell knows running backs: He's coached nearly every 1,000-yard rusher Oregon has ever had, including this season's All-American, Kenjon Barner. And no major-college assistant football coach has spent more time at a program than Campbell. Right now, it's 30 years and counting.
So Campbell makes the short drive from the Ducks' football facility to his gorgeous little neighborhood in Eugene. He drives a Mercedes. His collection of tailored suits is legendary at Oregon. His holiday-decorated house sits in a cul-de-sac, and in the back of the property you'll find a pond and bubbling fountain. Life is good.
And then you walk into his home and the first thing you hear is the gentle sound of what turns out to be a respirator. You meet his wife, Alola, a loving, headstrong woman from Mississippi who married Gary in 1982. You meet a nurse named Angela. And you meet Bryan.
There isn't a subtle way of saying it: Bryan Campbell shouldn't be alive today. A pair of doctors told Gary and Alola their newborn son would never make it to his first birthday.

With that logic, BoB would of never went to PSU, and he'll never go to the NFL... Which we all know is inevitable.
