UNC names Myslinski strength coach

Tom Myslinski, who has worked as a strength coach at Memphis, Pittsburgh, Robert Morris and for five years with the Cleveland Browns, has been named head strength and conditioning coach at North Carolina, the school announced.

Myslinski was an All-SEC offensive lineman at Tennessee and played nine seasons in the NFL. At Memphis, he was responsible for planning and designing the interior of the new $3 million, 13,000 square foot weight room.

“Tom has a phenomenal background with his experience as a player and strength coach at the college and professional level,” said Davis.  “In addition to his background in football strength and conditioning, he was also an outstanding track athlete, which will benefit our team.”

Myslinski participated in the shot put and hammer throw at Tennessee.

He replaces Jeff Connors, who left to take a similar position at East Carolina.
