Alex Jardine joined Nebraska Athletics as the Women's Basketball Strength Coach in August of 2021.........."We are excited to add Alex to our staff," Nebraska Coach Amy Williams said. "He is an experienced women's basketball strength and conditioning coach who is an expert with movement. He also strongly emphasizes injury prevention, so we believe he is going to be a tremendous asset to the development of our players."

  • Red Don changed the title to New Strength & Conditioning Coach

Must have something to do with injuries.  :Whistling:

Isabelle Bourne, Ruby Porter and Trinity Brady each caught a ride (off the floor with injuries) at some point this season. You also can add Bella Cravens to the list of players injured during a game.
Nebraska had four starters miss multiple games this season. Bourne, the team's second-leading scorer and a high-level defender, missed four games with an ankle injury. Nebraska’s best rebounder, Cravens, missed three games with an ankle injury. Porter missed four games with ankle and leg injuries.

 

I'd expect LJS or OWH to have some sort of upcoming article on the new strength coach.

Injuries are a part of the game. A new SC coach will not change landing wrong or on someone's foot. 

Yes statistics show that there are more injuries in the women's side of basketball then the men's and that's one of the reasons they get 2 more scholarships then men.  I think the length of time to recover from injuries during rehab may have also been a factor.  We'll never know all the reasons for the change.

Seems like Stuart Hart, the former strength and conditioning coach, was hired by UCLA for their WBB program in June.
