Packers Hire Woodfin As Strength And Conditioning Coach

The Packers have reportedly hired Zac Woodfin as assistant strength and conditioning coach who looks to replace Dave Redding.

According to the Prattville Progress of Alabama:

[Zac] Woodfin will take the position of assistant strength coach with the storied National Football League franchise. The Packers are fresh from winning their 13th league championship, more than any other franchise.

Woodfin played briefly for the Packers in 2005.

He looks to replace Dave Redding, the Packers' head strength and conditioning coach in 2009 who moved to the assistant position in 2010 as part of head coach Mike McCarthy's plan to elevate Mark Lovat.

With all the injuries we had maybe this was a good move. Redding wasn't training guys right maybe and it had something to do with all the injuries.

Sometimes injuries are just bad luck. It would be unfair to place any blame at the feet of Redding without any sort of knowledge or proof.

If they were not training guys right how did they win the SuperBowl with a bunch of backups?

Dave Redding trained football players for over 35 years. Redding was inducted in the USA Strength and Conditioning Coaches Hall of Fame in 2006. He must have done something right.

Yeah, when I first caught on to CHTV, wasn't there an "Ironman" that was on here all the time? Where did he go? I liked his comments..

I dug the movie they made about him that had Stiffler in it, where he was like a P.E. teacher...

They should also work this from a dietary standpoint. Use foods to promote kidney yin for strong teeth and bones. Use foods to promote liver yin for strong sinews, nerves and joints. Sinews being mainly ligaments and tendons. For the record, I am available.

McCarthy has stated that it was always his intention to have Redding come in to help install a new program and then move on. Lovat took over as head strength and conditioning coach last summer with Redding staying on in an advisors capacity. Redding leaving after his second year with the team has supposedly been the plan.
