HUNTINGTON -- Scott Sinclair is Marshall University's new head strength and conditioning coach after spending nine years at UCF.

Sinclair was the associate director of strength and condition at UCF where he worked with the football, baseball and track teams. With the football team he was directly responsible for the speed and agility programs along with administrative duties.

He'll work closely with Marshall football head coach Doc Holliday.

"I am very excited to be working with coach Holliday and Marshall, a program that is rich in its history and tradition," Sinclair said in a news release. "I look forward to training our guys from both a mental and a physical standpoint and helping them achieve greatness."

Sinclair was a May 2012 recipient of the highest honor in his field when he was certified as a Master Strength and Conditioning Coach at the Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association's national conference. The title of Master Strength and Conditioning Coach represents professionalism, knowledge, experience, expertise as well as longevity in the field,

Prior to UCF, he served as an assistant strength and conditioning coach at Georgia Tech from 2001-03. While with the Yellow Jackets, he worked as the assistant director of player development for the football squad. From 1999-2001, he worked in the Wake Forest strength and conditioning department.

The native of Rockingham, N.C., is a Guilford College graduate with a master's from UCF.

Sinclair and his wife, Farrah, have one son, Creed, and one daughter, Asher.
