MU strength coach Miday stepping down

Jan. 14, 2013 @ 08:20 AM

HUNTINGTON – Marshall University head strength and conditioning coach Joe Miday confirmed on Monday morning that he is leaving his post with the Thundering Herd after spending six seasons in Huntington.

He is leaving for Western Kentucky University where he will take the reigns of the strength program under head coach Bobby Petrino, who was named head coach on Dec. 10, 2012.

Miday had worked his way through the Marshall strength and conditioning ladder, starting with the Herd as a graduate assistant in 2007.

After spending three years as an assistant strength and conditioning coach, Miday was named as Marshall’s head strength and conditioning coach in 2011.

Known as “Coach Joe” by players and around Huntington, Miday had become a fan favorite among the Herd coaches.

Aside from Marshall assistant athletic director of football operations Mark Gale, Miday was Marshall’s most-tenured member of the football staff.
