The Ohio State University’s Director of Athletics, Gene Smith, is Martin Jarmond’s mentor. Smith always told Jarmond to stick to a plan and follow its process. Now the AD at BC, Jarmond is doing just that.
Martin Jarmond arrived on campus to a flurry of questions on Monday. He’ll have a full plate, but here’s what he should address first.
After nine years with the Buckeyes, Martin Jarmond will be the youngest AD in the Power Five, as well as BC’s first ever AD of color.
Every time the Boston Marathon rolls around, BC advertises and supports the sport of running. But for the other 364 days of the year, the school fails to live up to its name.
Boston College has hired Parker Executive Search to help screen and select candidates to be the next Director of Athletics.
Sports editor Riley Overend narrows down the athletic director search to eight candidates and evaluates them ahead of Brad Bates’ impending resignation.

Director of Athletics Brad Bates has stepped down after a five-year tenure in which the Eagles’ for-profit sports have consistently failed to win.
The Eagles will play at Fenway Park for the second time in three years after Connecticut decided it would move its game there on Nov. 18.
The Eagles snagged another Power Five opponent—granted, one that recruits like a mid-major—when it scheduled a home-and-home series with Kansas in 2019 and 2020.
