One of the DSM news stations mentioned former ISU assistant Woodley who is currently at Grandview as a possibility. Not sure if that was speculation or had roots.
There are lots of great strength coaches around the country - big schools, small schools, etc. Sheppard brings the S/C philosophy from what he learned under Madden at Texas and North Carolina; Getty learned a lot of his principles from the great Jerry Schmidt when they were at Notre Dame. Schmidt is now at Oklahoma.
Strength and conditioning is even more critical at Iowa State because it is looked at as an "leveler" in the playing field for less-talented teams to compete with the big boys. I'm sure Coach Rhoads looks at the S/C staff as one of his most critical hires.
Who is... i mean was the S&C coach at Auburn. If Shep is in, someone else is out.
answered my own ?. But is he any good?
Channel 5 reported this guy is coming to ISU.
I could see Woodley being brought in as Director of Football Operations. I could see Chris Ash, Atif Austin, and Tony Alford.
Either way, I would love nothing more than to some day have the Paul Rhoads coaching tree brought up during big BCS games in the future. And I think Paul may be capable of doing just that!
We need recruiters to get people to Ames. Willis looks like a winner.
