The Bulldogs have tabbed Thomas Stallworth to be their next strength and conditioning coach, head coach Tim DeRuyter announced Wednesday.
Stallworth replaces former strength and conditioning coach Joey Boese, who departed this offseason to take the same position at Illinois.
“I’m elated to announce the hiring of our new head football strength coach, Thomas Stallworth,” DeRuyter said in a statement. “His knowledge, passion, and drive to impact student-athletes’ lives is clearly evident and I’m excited to have him here working with our players. This is a critical position on our coaching staff and I know coach Stallworth will challenge our guys every day to strive for excellence in all areas of their lives. We welcome him, his wife, Ingrid, and his children, India and Thomas, to the Valley.”
Stallworth, who played at Tennessee from 1997-2001, has more than 10 years of experience under his belt in strength and conditioning. His resume includes stops at South Carolina State, Grambling State, Mississippi State, North Carolina State and most recently Texas Tech.
Stallworth holds a bachelor’s degree in sport management and a master’s in sports administration, both from the University of Tennessee.
In addition to coaching, Stallworth is also furthering his education as he is currently pursuing his doctorate degree in sports psychology and sports science at the University of the Rockies.
