HUNTINGTON, W.Va. -- Scott Sinclair has been named Marshall’s head strength and conditioning coach, the school announced Friday.

Sinclair comes to Marshall after nine years as an associate director of strength and conditioning at UCF, where he worked with the football program along with baseball and track & field. With the football program, he was directly responsible for the speed and agility programs in addition to the program’s administrative duties.

In May 2012, he was awarded the highest honor in his field when he was certified as a master strength and conditioning coach (MSCC) at the Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association's national conference. The title of master strength and conditioning coach represents professionalism, knowledge, experience, expertise as well as longevity in the field. He is also CPR/AED certified.

“I am very excited to be working with Coach Holliday and Marshall, a program that is rich in its history and tradition,” said Sinclair. “I look forward to training our guys from both a mental and a physical standpoint and helping them achieve greatness.”

Prior to UCF, he served as an assistant strength and conditioning coach at Georgia Tech from 2001-03. While with the Yellow Jackets, he worked as the assistant director of player development for the Yellow Jackets’ football squad. From 1999-2001, he worked in the Wake Forest strength and conditioning department.

A native of Rockingham, N.C., he earned his bachelor's degree in sports medicine from Guilford College in 1999. Sinclair, a  member of the Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association, received a master's degree in physical education from UCF in 2006.

Sinclair and his wife, Farrah, have one son, Creed, and one daughter, Asher.
