OSU Hires Banks

July 11, 2017

Chris Holtmann, head coach of the Buckeyes, hired Quadrian Banks, who most recently worked with the Indianapolis Colts, Friday to become the strength and conditioning coach for the Ohio State men’s basketball program.

“I am very excited about the addition of Quadrian,” Holtmann said. “He is an elite strength coach and has extensive experience working with athletes at the highest level.  From his start working in college basketball at the University of Texas with its Final Four team in 2003, all the way through his most recent experience in the National Football League, he has proven his ability to help develop athletes to their fullest potential.  He is high-energy, knowledgeable, committed and thrilled about being a part of The Ohio State University.  Please help us welcome Coach Q, his wife Ann Marie and son Ryan, to the Buckeye family.”

Ohio State is the fifth men’s basketball program that Banks has worked with over his career.

"My family and I are extremely grateful and excited for the opportunity to join the Buckeye family,” Banks said. “I look forward to getting to work." 

Before he worked with the Colts, Banks was the assistant strength and conditioning coach for the Philadelphia Eagles. Prior to joining the Eagles, he was the director of athletic performance for two seasons at Gardner Webb University. He also served as the assistant strength and conditioning coach at the University of Mississippi (2008-10) and University of Richmond (2007-08).

Banks attended the University of Texas at Austin and received his undergrad degree (Kinesiology - Health Promotion and Fitness) in 2003. He earned a Masters of Education at Prairie View A&M in 2005.
