Numerous reports say Butch Jones has hired longtime NFL Strength and Conditioning coach Rock Gullickson to the same position.
Tennessee has been in need of a Strength and Conditioning Coach since Dave Lawson left the program last April. Gullickson has been with the St. Louis/Los Angeles Rams since 2009. He’s been in the NFL since 2000 with the Saints and Packers.
In the 1990’s, Gullickson led the strength programs at the University of Texas and University of Louisville. Jones and Gullickson crossed paths at Rutgers in 1990-1992.
