Chestnut Hill, Mass. – Boston College has named Martin Jarmond, deputy director of athletics at The Ohio State University (OSU), as the next William V. Campbell Director of Athletics. He succeeds Brad Bates, who will become vice president of Collegiate Sports Associates in June.
At Ohio State, Jarmond also functioned as chief of staff for Athletics Director Gene Smith, and directed external and internal relations and day-to-day operations at an athletics program that has approximately 1,100 student athletes in 36 Division I sports, 375 employees, and a budget of $170 million.
He served as sport administrator for football, men’s basketball, baseball, and men’s and women’s golf programs, and was a member of the AD’s executive leadership team where he participated in strategic planning and directed search committees for coaches and administrators.
As OSU Athletics’ chief advancement officer, Jarmond helped raise more than $120 million between 2010-2012, and was a member of the University Development Senior Leadership team for the $2.5 billion “But for Ohio State…” capital campaign. In addition, he chaired the Athletics District Master Plan, which included $200 million in Athletics construction projects.
Jarmond was a member of the NCAA’s inaugural College Football Playoff National Championship Advisory Group and the Rose Bowl Advisory Committee. This week, Sports Business Daily Journal recognized his contributions to intercollegiate athletics by naming him to its prestigious Forty Under 40, Class of 2017.
“Martin is one of the best administrators I have ever worked with,” said Gene Smith, who serves as OSU’s senior vice president and Wolfe Foundation endowed athletics director. “His leadership skills are exceptional. It has been a tremendous honor working with him and watching him develop into a premier athletic administrator. His contributions to The Ohio State University have been significant, and he will be missed.”
