Deb Broeker is in her 16th year with the Ohio State football program and in her 10th season as assistant to head coach. She coordinates the football office, organizes events such as the football appreciation banquet and other galas, and is the main contact for Tressel's speaking and charity requests.
Broeker has served Ohio State for more than 30 years, including 18 years in the development office. In 2008, she was just one of 12 employees campus-wide to receive the Distinguished Staff Award, and the first athletic department representative to win that honor in the 12-year history of the award.
She lives in Grove City with her son, Sean, and two daughters, Paris and Sommer.
