Strength in numbers

When the new year begins, the Warriors are expected to address the shortage of strength and conditioning coaches for the athletic department and football program.

Since Mel deLaura's departure in 2010, the Warriors have been without a fulltime football-only S&C coach. Of the 10 Mountain West football teams in 2012, UH was the only one without a FT S&C coach.

School — Number of teams — FT S&C coaches — FT S&C coaches for football

Air Force — 27 — 6 — 1

Hawaii — 21 — 2 — 0

New Mexico — 19 — 4 — 1

Fresno State — 18 — 4 — 1

San Diego State — 18 — 3 — 1

UNLV — 18 — 3 — 1

Boise State — 17 — 5 — 1

Nevada — 16 — 3 — 1

Wyoming — 15 — 5 — 1

Colorado State — 14 — 6 — 1

It was pretty surprising to hear of Chris Ault's (third) retirement at Nevada. Good coach, better rival.

With Pat Hill gone, Dennis Franchione long gone, and Chris Petersen soon to be gone, maybe, UH is running out of good rival coaches.
