North Carolina has hired Tom Myslinski as its head strength and conditioning coach for football, the school announced on Tuesday. Myslinski (MISH-lin-ski) comes to Chapel Hill after a year at the University of Memphis and five years with the Cleveland Browns.
A native of Rome, N.Y., Myslinski earned all-conference honors at Tennessee, played nine seasons in the NFL and has worked as a strength and conditioning coach at Memphis, Pittsburgh, Robert Morris and professionally with the Cleveland Browns.
“Tom has a phenomenal background with his experience as a player and strength coach at the college and professional level,” coach Butch Davis said. “In addition to his background in football strength and conditioning, he was also an outstanding track athlete, which will benefit our team.”
“It’s an honor to be in Chapel Hill to serve the University’s student-athletes and compete for a championship,” said Myslinski.
Most recently, Myslinski spent one season at Memphis where he was responsible for planning and designing the interior of the new $3 million, 13,000 square foot weight room. He was instrumental in maintaining a 92 percent start rate throughout the season. Myslinski served five seasons with the Browns, the last three as the head strength and conditioning coach.
