Default Dan Riley

We have had more injuries than any team in the league.

He is the last hold over from the CC regime.

His body of work suggests that we need another strength & conditioning coach. IMO

Default Re: Dan Riley

What strength and conditioning should Riley have had Dunta doing to keep his knee from being crushed by another player? What should have done to keep AJ from getting hyperextended on a hit over the middle? McKinney blowing a knee? Weary breaking a bone? Spencer's leg from breaking?

What injuries can you point to and say a different strength and conditioning program would have prevented them?

On the other hand, you have guys like Salaam saying Riley saved his career with his customized program.

Dan Riley's the Alex Gibbs of stregth and conditioning. He's well known and respected around the league for what he does. If he were let go there'd be 31 other teams clammoring for him.

Dan Riley's not going anywhere until he choses to do so, IMO.

*edit: Dang ICak, what're the odds we'd post at the same time in a thread that's 10 hrs old. Weird, I tell ya

Dan Riley is one of the top 3 S&C coaches in the history of the NFL (probably the best).

He has been in the NFL for over 25 years.

A S&C coach can prevent injuries to high school & college players, but this is the NFL. Every single one of those guys is a tremendous athlete, and most injuries in the NFL are fluke injuries that cannot be prevented.

Dan Riley joined the Texans as the club’s first strength and conditioning coach on February 1, 2001. Riley enters his 26th year as a strength coach in the National Football League.

Prior to joining the Texans, Riley spent the previous 19 seasons in the same capacity with the Washington Redskins. He served as an integral part of three Super Bowl champions, four NFC champions, and five NFC East champions during his tenure.

Riley has authored four books on weight training. In addition, he wrote a physical fitness column for the Washington Post and also authored the “Power Line,” a monthly fitness column for Coach and Athletic Director magazine. Riley now authors the "Fitness Corner" column on HoustonTexans.com and co-hosts a weekly fitness and nutrition show on Houston's SportsRadio 610 with Texans team nutritionist Roberta Anding.

Prior to his stint with the Redskins, Riley spent five years as the strength coach at Penn State after serving four years as the strength coach at the United States Military Academy at West Point.

A native of Manchester, N.H., Riley graduated from Keene State College with an undergraduate degree in physical education. He has a master’s degree in physical education from Indiana University.

Riley and his wife Brenda have two sons – Marty, who works for Microsoft and lives in Redmond, Wash., and T, who lives in Houston and is employed at the St. John's School as a teacher, coach and assistant athletic director.

That's a mighty impressive resume.

Default Re: Dan Riley

I know that Dan Riley is well respected around the league. I know that his resume is top notch, etc., etc... But quite honestly, I have questioned this before too..
Last two seasons, at least 17 people on I.R....? I think that speaks volumes, or at the very least deserves some discussion.

Not when most of the injuries have nothing to do with strength and conditioning.
