|Position:||Strength and Conditioning Coordinator|
Greg Goldin continued his association with Coach Will Wade when he joined the LSU Athletics staff as Strength and Conditioning Coordinator for men’s basketball prior to the start of the 2017-18 season.
Goldin has now worked the past five seasons for Coach Wade at Tennessee-Chattanooga (2013-15), VCU (2015-17) and LSU (2017-18).
He previously also served as strength and conditioning coach under Steve Prohm at Murray State during the 2012-13 season and prior to that graduate assistant under former VCU strength coach Daniel Roose during the 2011-12 campaign.
Goldin has become well known for his efforts to integrate technological advancements in player wellness analytics, as well as devising a strength and conditioning routine to suit Coach Wade’s aggressive style of play. Measuring and managing wear and tear on the body, as well as giving clues about potential issues off the court has been part of the program Goldin has developed in putting together conditioning programs under Wade.
Goldin believes that performance-monitoring technology is becoming more mainstream for college teams. He uses it as an educational tool to help athletes learn to take care of their bodies and to help coaches learn what they’re doing to an athlete’s body.
Golden served as a graduate assistant under former VCU strength coach Daniel Roose during the 2011-12 campaign and aided the Rams’ march to a CAA championship and NCAA Tournament berth.
He also is working as strength and conditioning coordinator at LSU with the nationally-ranked men’s golf team.
A native of Ilion, New York, Goldin is a 2011 graduate of Canisius College, where he received a degree in health and physical education, as well as health and human performance. He also received his graduate degree from Virginia Commonwealth Univeristy from the Center for Sports Leadership.
