Blog: A change on Georgia’s strength staff

Georgia’s strength and conditioning staff will have a change in 2012.

John Kasay is heading back to retirement after spending the past year working under director Joe Tereshinski, according to the school.

Kasay was a former strength and conditioning coach under Vince Dooley. He was working on a part-time basis for Georgia after his return.

“We can’t thank him enough to help get us through the transition period,” athletic director Greg McGarity said. “He was a tremendous mentor to Joe. We appreciate him getting us back on our feet.”

McGarity said Kasay made the move now knowing that a new NCAA limit of five strength staff members will begin in August.

Georgia already has Tereshinski, Thomas Brown, Tony Gilbert, Keith Gray and Rex Bradberry on staff.

“He just made the decision to do it now,” McGarity said.

McGarity said Georgia probably would not hire somebody to fill Kasay’s position on a temporary basis until the summer.
