Thanks. Searched the OSU website to see if it happened to have him listed. Looks like he's the Director of Football Operations and has actually been with Urban since Bowling Green:

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."

Maybe it's because we're less than 2 hours from kickoff, or maybe it's because I just watched Trichel's hype trailer, but - aside from opening up about his eating disorder (mad props) - I'm not "feeling the love" for him at the moment lol. (Well-written as always though, D.J.)

Appreciate their perspective. 

Bill had some "interesting" takes... 

The wonderful thing about Saquon Barkley is that you can’t go in expecting anything, because he’s capable of so many remarkable feats of athleticism that he still manages to blow your mind. You all saw it last year: Ohio State’s defensive front was in the Nittany Lion backfield by the time the ball was snapped, and yet Barkley still went for 194 yards. 

The Nittany Lions have a ton of talent in the passing game – Chris Godwin is awesome and capable of dragging defenders for extra yards (shout out Eli Apple, no matter what side you were on in that game I think we can all admit that was hilarious)

He blew away Ezekiel Elliott last year, and Zeke is the man, so…

Not sure if just being colorful, or passive-aggressive jabs...

Man, what a share. Thanks for the perspective and I'm glad you're okay! Take care of yourself healing up - got a lot of fellow Buckeyes rooting for you here.

Bruce, a true freshman wide receiver, was dismissed from the program last Monday for multiple violations of its conduct code. Bruce was tardy or absent from meetings and rehab sessions, and he lied to coaches after breaking his leg playing pickup basketball last month. He told them he was riding his bike.

That happened while Bruce was suspended the first three games of the season because an incident during his senior year of high school, when he was shown in a photo brandishing a gun. He later transferred schools.


Hopefully he gets back on the right path.  Such potential on the field.
