More than two decades ago, Tommy Heffernan was a multi-skilled athlete who played for the UH football and baseball teams.
Once again, Heffernan is multi-tasking, serving as the head of UH’s strength program while also directing the football Warriors’ strength-and-conditioning activities.
Heffernan and head coach Nick Rolovich are seeking a replacement for Gary Beemer, who recently joined Rutgers as a strength/conditioning coach.
The Warriors’ off-sesason conditioning program begins Jan. 25.
UH’s overall strength program, like other departments, operates on a slim budget. Beemer was one of three full-time assistants under Heffernan this past fall. Hank McDonald and James Chassin are the other assistants.
The weight room also has two graduate assistants and some volunteers.
