Probably the best word to describe Mike O’Brien is “builder.”Now in his 10th year as the athletic director at the University of Toledo, O’Brien has been an instrumental force in initiating one of the most ambitious construction schedules in school history. No fewer than five major projects have been completed during O’Brien’s reign, as well as numerous smaller ones.
O’Brien, who has the second-longest tenure among Mid-American Conference athletic directors,has also been a builder in an even more important sense. He has guided the Rockets into position as one of the strongest programs in the Mid-American Conference, both on the field and in the classroom.The Rockets have won or shared 16 MAC titles in seven different sports under O’Brien’s watch. And in the classroom, O’Brien’s emphasis on academics has led to record-breaking report cards for the department.
In the classroom, UT has produced overall department grade-point averages of above a 3.0 in 10 of the last 12 semesters. In the 2011 spring semester, UT student-athletes achieved a combined GPA of 3.166, the highest in school history. More than 35 percent of student-athletes received at least a 3.5 GPA, with more than 62 percent earning a 3.0+ GPA, the 15th consecutive semester above the 50-percent mark.
Among O’Brien’s other accomplishments are adding Ohio State, Colorado, Purdue, Arizona,
Missouri, Navy, Fresno State, Boise State and Wyoming to the home football schedule;
working with the Inverness Club to bring the 2009 NCAA Men’s Golf Championships to
Toledo; and securing a multi-year deal with Learfield Sports to increase UT’s advertising
