Associate Athletic Director/General Manager, Football Operations
Ohio State University
Brian Voltolini is in his eighth year working with the Ohio State football program. He was elevated to the position of associate athletic director/general manager, football operations in 2018 after working the previous six years as director of football operations.
Voltolini has oversight responsibilities for all areas of the football program’s departments, staff and operations. In addition, he is the liaison with the compliance, SASSO, communications and business offices, and in his new position he will oversee coaches/staff contracts and work with the department’s legal and human resources team. He will also work with and maintain consistent contact with coach/staff agents and representatives.
Voltolini came to Ohio State in 2012 and was hired by Urban Meyer, who he worked for a total of 18 years. He started with Meyer in 2001 at Bowling Green State University. He spent two years there, working as video coordinator with additional responsibilities in the area of operations, before moving on to the University of Utah with Meyer.
Voltolini spent three seasons at Utah, from spring 2003 through the spring of 2006, finishing his tenure as director of video while also handling administrative operations duties in the areas of recruiting budgets, billing and youth camps.
Meyer recruited Voltolini to Florida in 2006, and for the next five years he directed the football video/software operations, and also was primary administrator for Meyer’s coaching web site. He took over football operations for the 2010 season – Meyer’s last at Florida – before spending the 2011 campaign on Will Muschamp’s Florida staff.
“Brian not only has a sharp awareness of what needs to be done for an efficient, fluid operation of a football program,” Meyer said, “but he also has that keen sense of knowing what the program needs from an operations perspective. And I appreciate that greatly.”
Voltolini grew up in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, and has a degree in psychology with a minor in sociology from the University of Idaho (1999). He and his wife, the former Lindsey Wilde, have three children: a son, Deacon, and daughters Scarlett and Lucia.
