Director of Football Operations
Ohio State University
Brian Voltolini, who has worked with Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer at Bowling Green, Utah and Florida, is in his fifth season as the team's director of football operations. He is responsible for the operation of the football program's budget, scholarships, team travel, housing, camps and clinics, and other administrative responsibilities.
The 2016 football season will be the 14th season for Voltolini to be working as part of a Meyer staff. 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.
