Eli Drinkwitz reportedly adding Big 12 strength coach to Missouri staff
Eli Drinkwitz has made another addition to his new coaching staff at Missouri.
According to FootballScoop, the Tigers are hiring Kansas director of strength and conditioning Zac Woodfin to fill the same role on their staff. Drinkwitz was officially hired as Mizzou’s head coach on Dec. 10 and has been assembling his staff since then.
Woodfin has been at Kansas since 2017. Prior to that, he served as an assistant for Southern Miss (2015-16), UAB (2014) and the NFL’s Green Bay Packers (2011-13).
Before breaking into coaching, Woodfin spent time at Athletes Performance in Los Angeles, working with professional athletes on their training. He was there from 2007-10.
Woodfin is a UAB alum, and he spent time as a volunteer there and at Alabama while working for Athletes Performance.
Missouri hasn’t won more than eight games since 2014, so Drinkwitz and his new staff will be looking to get the Tigers back to success starting next season.
