Longtime OSU men’s & women’s volleyball SID Koehl passes away

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio State University and the Department of
Athletics lost longtime administrator D.C. Koehl today from
complications of a fall he had in late November. He was 61.

Koehl was in his 39th year with the Department of Athletics. He joined
the department’s sports information office in July 1973 after graduating
from Ohio State earlier that year with a degree in public recreation. He
was a basketball manager for four years while an undergraduate, working
for Hall of Fame coach Fred Taylor, and served as head manager for the
team as a senior.

“D.C. was one of the most dedicated and well-respected individuals in
this Athletics Department,” associated athletics director Chris
Schneider said. “Not only did he provide great support to the coaches
and student-athletes here at Ohio State, but he worked tirelessly for
the sport of volleyball and the Midwestern Intercollegiate Volleyball
Association. We have all lost a dear friend today.”

A native of Columbus and a graduate of Walnut Ridge High School, Koehl
started a statistics and record service for the school’s athletic teams.
His love of statistics followed him to Ohio State, where he was the
go-to person – and an excellent one – for football and basketball
statistics even after statistics became ubiquitous with the introduction
of the World Wide Web.

A reference in an Ohio State basketball media guide in the 1980s stated
that Koehl “has devised a system of storing historical athletic
information in a computer.”

Koehl loved the sport of volleyball. He was the athletics communications
contact for the men’s and women’s teams for the last 30 years. He
coordinated the promotion and publicity efforts for countless
NCAA-qualifying, Big Ten- and MIVA-champion teams, and dozens of
All-Americans and players of the year. And this past season he enjoyed
the pinnacle of volleyball success as the Ohio State men’s program,
under the direction of Pete Hanson, won its first NCAA championship.

“I am so thankful that D.C. had the opportunity to be with us in State
College this past May to witness our finest hour as a program,” men’s
volleyball coach Pete Hanson said. “I really feel like he probably was
out there playing every moment on the court with our kids. Though he
would probably never show outwardly how much he enjoyed that night, I
believe that deep down it might have been one of his best Ohio State
moments. Those thoughts make me very happy for D.C.

“He will be missed greatly for his professionalism and support.  I have
never met a finer BUCKEYE. He truly was a dear friend and colleague.”

Koehl was the communications contact for the entire Midwestern
Intercollegiate Volleyball Association, and he served as a
communications contact for the Ohio State sports of rifle and pistol.

And for years and years he oversaw the daunting administrative tasks of
football credentialing. And that task, too, he did exceptionally well.

“D.C. Koehl was incredibly dedicated to The Ohio State University and
the countless student-athletes whom he chronicled and promoted over his
career,” associate athletics director for communications Dan Wallenberg
said. “His attention to detail and meticulous archiving efforts have
been invaluable for both staff and media alike. He will be missed by all
those who came to know and love him.”

A member of the College Sports Information Directors of America for 37
years, Koehl was honored with a 25-year award by the organization in
