Boston College Hires Youngest Athletic Director In The Power Five

Boston College has hired its new athletic director.

On Thursday, Boston College announced the hiring of Martin Jarmond as the school’s new athletic director. The former Ohio State deputy director of athletics is just 37 years old, making him the youngest athletic director at any Power Five program.

Jarmond addressed his hiring in a statement released by the university.

“I am humbled and honored to serve as the William V. Campbell Director of Athletics at Boston College,” said Jarmond in a statement. “I am grateful to Fr. Leahy and Boston College for entrusting me with this role. I have always believed that the commitment to high academic standards and competing at the highest level athletically are not mutually exclusive. The opportunity to serve at a top-notch academic institution in the ACC is a dream come true for me. I am passionate about helping young people develop and integrate the intellectual, athletic, social and spiritual components of their lives.

“My leadership style is consistent with BC’s values: operating with integrity, passion, and a relentless focus on getting better every day. I can assure you that I will put in the work to make our students, alumni, and fans proud of BC athletics. I knew it would take a special place to leave Ohio State. It is clear to me that Boston College is that place.”

Jarmond will officially begin his new gig in June, when current athletic director Brad bates leaves to become vice president of Collegiate Sports Associates.
