There are many common links when analyzing successful college football squads.

A crucial component within the winning formula is possessing a quality strength and conditioning unit.

As a means to vault into the upper crust of the sport, Tennessee is attempting to overhaul their S&C program. UT ended up separating from veteran strength coach Dave Lawson earlier this season.

According to a report from 247Sports, head coach Butch Jones is looking towards the professional ranks for some potential help. A source indicated that Jones is targeting longtime friend and current Los Angeles Rams strength and conditioning coach Rock Gullickson.

Gullickson has been with the Rams for seven seasons — and has spent 17 in the NFL. Jones and Gullickson coached together at Rutgers in the early ’90’s.

With multiple games remaining in the NFL season, it isn’t known as to whether Gullickson has interest in the job.
