Blog: Strength staff assistant leaving

Another change is coming to Georgia’s football strength and conditioning staff.

Assistant strength and conditioning coach Rex Bradberry will be leaving the staff soon to do a different kind of training.

“I will be training special forces for our great United States,” Bradberry said via email.

Bradberry has been a full-time strength staff member for two years after serving as a graduate assistant from 2003-10 and as an intern for a year before that. He also served as a team nutritionist and was a personal trainer for former Bulldogs’ defensive end David Pollack when he was in the NFL.

Georgia made two new hires prior to spring practice.

Former Penn State head strength coach John Thomas is now senior associate strength and conditioning coach under Joe Tereshinski. Sherman Armstrong, who specialized in speed and agility training in Tampa, is associate strength and conditioning coach. Former Georgia linebacker Tony Gilbert remains an assistant strength coach.

Quarterback Aaron Murray worked with Armstrong back home in Tampa last May and supported his hire.

‚ÄúI was like `Hey, this guy‚Äôs awesome, he‚Äôs worked with professional guys,” Murraysaid. ‚ÄúHe worked with (former Georgia safety) Reshad Jones when he was doing pre-draft and worked with some other guys. ‚ĶI was like `Hey, this is the guy we needed right here,‚Äô and we got him.‚Äô I‚Äôm excited about what he‚Äôs going to do.‚Äù
