    Re: Strength Coach Hired

    Good to cross one off finally. Rice liked him enough to give him some additional titles.

    Probably not. Not because of who but because of the position itself. It's a S&C coach. Unless you hired Arnold Schwarzenegger, not many would know who this person was regardless of the hire. Either the Cleveland Brown guy was just a rumor or found another gig. I'm fine with the hire.


    Oh shoot, he just took a job with Mississippi St. We had him for awhile.

    Re: Strength Coach Hired

    Here he is...good resume





    Position:
    Assistant AD/Performance Enhancement
    Third Season:
    Missouri Southern State Univ., 2001

    Yancy McKnight returns to the Owls for the 2007 season with a new title, Assistant AD/Performance Enhancement.
    McKnight, 35, came to Rice in 2006 and was continuously credited by the players as a key component in the Owls magical run to a bowl game. After briefly joining the other members of the 2006 staff in moving to Tulsa, McKnight reconsidered and his return to Rice was announced on January 23.
    The 2006 Owls showed a level of endurance that allowed them to battle back and win three times on the last offensive play of the game, due in large part to McKnight's conditioning and strength retention programs.
    He originally came to Rice after two years as the head strength and conditioning coach at Louisiana Tech University.
    McKnight helped Louisiana Tech to a 7-4 record in 2005. The Bulldogs won five of their last six games, including a 43-28 win at Fresno State to close the season.
    He began his college coaching career at Oklahoma State as an assistant in 2002 after building a repuration as a top strength and conditioning coach while directing the Adams Course in Dallas (1996-2001). McKnight has also served as a strength and conditioning program design consultant for Performance Course, Inc., in Allen.
    A 2001 graduate of Missouri Southern State University, the Joplin, Mo., native started his college career at Missouri State but transferred to his hometown school, Missouri Southern, becoming a three-time all-Mid-America Athletic Association offensive lineman (1993-95) and earning NCAA Division II all-America acclaim as a senior. He played in the 1995 Snow Bowl, that division's post-season all-star game. He was the Lions' team captain in '95.
    McKnight is a member of the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), and is a certified strength and conditioning specialist (CSCS), a certified strength and conditioning coach (SCCC), and a USA Weightlifting Level I certified coach. He is married to the former Lynn Karns of Joplin and they are the parents of a son, Brody Jameson, who will turn one this fall.

    Great, he left Rice to Tulsa only to move back to Rice. If this is true, hope he doesn't Altman us!

    Re: Strength Coach Hired

    This is a great, great hire if true. Yancy McKnight is a great strength coach, and top motivator.
    Get ready for him to hold an annual "Iron Cyclone" night like he's done at Rice, where the public is invited to attend football strength testing in the various lifts.
    I am convinced now that Rhoads will turn this into a very, very serious football program.

    So now that he's hired a guy that was probably somewhere around his 3-4th choice for S&C coach, you're convinced he's serious about making ISU a football program? Wow, we are a desperate fanbase right now. I can't wait until Rhoads announces that we're wearing 3/8 inch spikes next fall and people start passing out in amazement.
