Ohio State has granted a three-year contract extension and a pay raise to strength coach Mickey Marotti, whose official title is assistant AD for football sports performance. According to documents obtained from the Columbus Dispatch, Marotti’s new contract will pay him $862,238 in 2023, up from the $821,179 he earned in 2022. Ohio State has an impressive 128-15 record with Marotti at the helm of the team’s strength and conditioning efforts.
The contract keeps Marotti as the second-highest paid strength coach in college football, behind Oklahoma State’s Rob Glass at $1 million per year. The deal also allows for more yearly raises. Florida’s Mark Hocke is the third highest-paid strength coach at $750,000.
Marotti and Ohio State associate AD for player personnel/general manager Mark Pantoni came aboard in 2012 with former head coach Urban Meyer and have stayed through the tenure of Ryan Day. In their eleven seasons, Ohio State has won one national title, five Big Ten championships, been to five College Football Playoffs, won two Rose Bowl games, tallied 10 AP-top 10 finishes, and have an 8-2 record against Michigan.
This is great news for Ohio State as Marotti is a critical figure to the team’s success. His strength and conditioning programs are renowned in college football and are credited with helping the Buckeyes perform at a high level. Ohio State didn’t win the Big Ten this past season, but they still made it to the CFP, and Marotti’s work was a significant factor. With the additional annual raises in his contract, there is little doubt that Marotti will continue to produce considerable benefits for Buckeyes football for years to come.
