There has been a lot of focus on who Mike Leach will hire as defensive coordinator, but it wasn't the only position Leach had left to fill. He also needed to hire a strength coach, which he now may have. The news comes from Twitter and someone named Brian Floyd. I have no clue who this person is, but we will take his word for it this time.
Been told to expect KSU S&C coach Chris Dawson to join Mike Leach's staff in the same capacity
We will have much more on Dawson, but until then here is a quick rundown of his resume.
- Former Oklahoma linebacker.
- Spent five years working in the Oklahoma strength and conditioning department.
- Spent three months working for the Las Vegas Outlaws of the XFL.
- Spent two months working as a strength and conditioning intern with the Dallas Cowboys.
- Head strength and conditioning coach at the University of Minnesota for two seasons.
- Director of strength and conditioning at the University of Kansas for seven seasons.
- Director of strength and conditioning at Kansas State for two seasons.
- 2007 National Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coach of the Year.
