    New Strength Coach - HE IS OFFICIAL

    I really like what I am hearing about where Rhoads has gone on the new S&C. I won't rehash all the arguments about the two prior, but both had their (no pun intended) strengths and weaknesses. Getty was more of a fitness professional, but if you recall one of the complaints that always came out on this board and those that preceded it on NFL combine day....our guys didn't test well in strength. Shep had built the strength of the team and yet he too wasn't a complete "modern" fitness guy and also as has been reported widely was not as universally loved by players as Getty was.

    What I am hearing about the new guy is that he is more balance across these two, but importantly has more of a football specific focus. Understanding not just the strength/muscle development for football, but also the has great perspective on developing guys to not just test well (which if it wasn't important it wouldn't be in the combine) but making them better able to use that strength in football situations.

    More to follow, but if what I am hearing is correct I will be very pleased. And no like everyone else I have no idea when anything will be announced

    If there was a new guy hired, it would already be announced. You may be hearing suppositions on what they might be looking for, but what I've told is the announcement will be made when it happens. There would be NO reason to hold back on this one.

    As I did with OC, just relating what I am hearing. Not trying to ruffle feathers if you don't want me to share what I hear just say so

    Re: New Strength Coach

    Why doesn't anybody just say the name of the supposed hire? I would like to know. What's the purpose to even start this thread if nobody is going to say a name? Might as well just get on here and say that I was reading the bible and the end of the world is coming someday. Seriously......any names?

    Where did you get this? After graduating from Luther (and playing football) he went right into football strength and conditioning at Wisconsin-Platteville, then five years at Notre Dame as an asst. under Jerry Schmidt, then at ISU, and now at Air Force.
    He has never been anything other than a football S/C coach.

    I thought I posted enough that it would have value, but since it seems that stuff isn't important to folks I can keep it to myself. I found it interesting so I shared. Sorry

    Thanks for the info. I too have heard the Browns S&C coach is an option.

    Well no matter who it is, 90% of this site or greater will:

    1. Belittle the guy that just left, because he is no longer here.
    2. Praise the new guy for his techniques, because he is here.

    Sorry, I didn't express that well. It was meant to primarily be a compliment. Getty is a guy who the strength and fitness community would recognize (as they did in 2001) as a epitomizing what the overall strength and conditioning is about. Remember though, he wasn't named best football S&C and that is an important distinction. Getty's only flaw in my mind and remember I like him, is that he approach is not as dedicated purely to football as I think it could be and that showed up in the strength results on combine day. Think about it if our best of the best athletes consistently test poorly on strength as is indisputedly true, it should tell you something. Again though this wasn't meant to be about Getty, b/c I think the best of Getty will be present in who I think is going to be the guy based on what I have heard.

    Oh I guarantee you if CPR hired Mickey Mouse there will be an article how he has brought "discipline" and "more demanding" workouts". Every year in college football its the same thing with new hires.
