Ohio State has lost another staff member this offseason, this one to former defensive coordinator Jeff Hafley.

Tuesday, Boston College announced that Phil Matusz will join Hafley in Chestnut Hill to become the football program’s strength and condition coach for the 2020 season. He takes the job after spending the previous six seasons in Columbus under Mickey Marotti at Ohio State.

“Being able to work alongside Phil at Ohio State, I was able to see the positive impact he had on the development of our student-athletes and our football program,” Hafley said in a statement. “We could not be more excited to have Phil leading our strength and conditioning program here at BC Football and we welcome him and his wife Jillian to our BC football family.”

Matusz initially joined the Ohio State program in February 2014 as an assistant coach. By 2017, he was promoted to the associate director of strength and conditioning. He was a member of the staff for the Buckeyes’ 2014 national championship run through the College Football Playoff.

Prior to Ohio State, Matusz was the strength and conditioning coach at Villanova for two seasons.
