The New York Jets hired Bill Hughan as strength coach on Monday. This is the type of news that usually ends up as a small blurb in any news release but because of who he's replacing it's a large news item. Hughan replaces Sal Alosi who famously set up a wall and tripped the opponents on the sidelines during a game.â†µ
Believe it or not, Hughan has a few local ties.â†µ
He was an assistant strength and conditioning coach at Missouri from 2001-2003. He also worked with the Omaha Royals, KC's AAA affiliate. He's also coached or the Oakland Raiders.â†µ
It's unclear if Hughan will be copying Alosi and blocking the sidelines to trip players. My guess is he probably won't be.
