Boston College’s athletic director Martin Jarmon is close to finalizing a 6-year deal to make him the new athletic director at UCLA.

Jarmond, who has spent the last 3 years at BC, is set to replace Dan Guerrero, who is retiring after nearly 18 years at UCLA. Others that were in consideration for the role were Penn’s Grace Calhoun and UNLV athletic director Desiree Reed-Francois.

When Jarmond becomes official, he will be taking over a football program that’s under Chip Kelly, and a basketball program currently under Mick Cronin as well as its troubles financially.

It is all too familiar that UCLA has had its athletic department in some money problems. According to reports, UCLA is facing close to $19 million in athletic department debt from 2019.

Jarmond came to Boston College in 2017 from Ohio State, where he worked under athletic director Gene Smith. Before that he spent 9 years at Ohio State as an associate athletic director for development in 2009 and worked his way up to oversee football operations there.

His athletic directional abilities as well as his fundraising skills could help UCLA in the long run. Jarmond has shown much success in his previous roles and doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon. The Bruins will be happy with this pick up for sure.
