Assistant Strength & Conditioning Coach
Quinn Barham joined the Ohio State Football strength and conditioning staff in January 2016, having an instrumental role in four Big Ten Championships, multiple College Football Playoff appearances and numerous NFL Draft Picks. In addition to working with the entire team, Quinn is heavily involved in the Freshmen Onboarding and Integration, Speed Development, and Recovery programs. He has had coaching stops at the University of North Carolina and NC State University.
Barham completed his undergraduate studies at Penn State University in 2011 and earned a master’s degree in Sport Coaching from Ohio State in 2019. He was a member of the Nittany Lions’ Football program from 2007 through 2011. He was named a team captain in 2011 and a two-year starter along the offensive line. He was blessed to further his football career in the NFL as a free agent with the Detroit Lions before entering the coaching ranks.
What Coach Barham enjoys most about coaching is being involved in the maturation and transformation process of the student-athlete throughout their careers. When he is not keeping busy with the Buckeyes, the Durham, North Carolina native can be found spending time with his wife, Chassidy, and daughter, Aria.
Barham is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association, a Certified Sport Performance Coach with United States of America Weightlifting (USAW) and is certified through the Collegiate Strength & Conditioning Coaches Association (CSCCa).
