Cougars Hire Jackson To Head Up Strength Program

Jan. 19, 2006

HOUSTON, Texas - University of Houston Director of Athletics Dave Maggard today announced the hiring of Larry N. Jackson, Jr., as the Cougars' new Head Strength and Conditioning Coach.

"Larry Jackson comes to us as our new head strength and conditioning coach with great credentials and experience," commented Maggard. "He has played at the highest level, has worked in outstanding programs and has all of the professional certificates required in order to train athletes in all sports.

"Most of what he will be doing is working with our football team; however, he will set the tone and direction for all sports. He is known to have a strong work ethic, relates well with the athletes and requires a disciplined approach to improving strength, conditioning and flexibility.

"Larry will be a real asset to our football program and to our entire athletic program. We welcome him."

A former football standout at Texas A&M, Jackson comes to UH from the University of Oklahoma where he spent two seasons as assistant strength and conditioning coach for the Sooner program, working specifically with the football program. Prior to his stint OU, Jackson worked six seasons at his alma mater in the same capacity, serving as both a graduate assistant and full-time assistant in the Aggie strength and conditioning program. While at A&M Jackson worked not only with the Aggie football program, but also with basketball, soccer and track and field.

UH head coach Art Briles also feels the addition of Jackson will benefit the Cougar Athletic Department.

"Larry Jackson certainly comes with a great background as a player," said Briles, "and he is very dedicated and very discipline which you need to be to survive at any level, so I respect that about him. His work ethic is tremendous, and of course, he has been exposed to two different styles of strength and conditioning at A&M and Oklahoma.

"We're at a position we feel we need to accelerate our development, and Larry certainly is the person to do this."

Upon his graduation from Texas A&M in 1995 with a bachelor's degree in agricultural development, Jackson spent four season playing in both the National Football League and NFL Europe. Jackson played for the Denver Broncos (1995-96), Arizona Cardinals (1996) and Miami Dolphins (1996-97), and later was allocated to NFL Europe where he played one season for the Barcelona Dragons (1998).

At Texas A&M Jackson played in four bowl games, including three straight Cotton Bowls (1992-94). He concluded his career by participating in the Blue-Gray All-Star Game.

Jackson is certified by several organizations: CSCCA Strength & Conditioning Coach Certified; NSCA Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist; USAW/Level 1 Certified Club Coach; and First Aid/CPR/AED. He is working towards a certificate in ISSA Specialist in Performance Nutrition.

He is also a member of American Football Coaches Association, Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association, National Strength and Conditioning Association, United States of America Weightlifting and International Sports Sciences Association.
