After spending 21 years as LSU's Strength & Conditioning Coordinator, Tommy Moffit is back in the SEC.

Moffit spent the last two years away from football after he was not retained by Brian Kelly but was hired by the new Texas A&M head coach Mike Elko in December of 2023.

On3’s Andy Staples recently spoke with Elko and talked about the hire of Moffit.

“Tommy Moffitt actually was one of the people who reached out and said, ‘I got a lot of interest in the job,'” Elko told On3’s Andy Staples. “Obviously, that’s a call that you have to take. You can’t not take the call from the legend of the strength and conditioning industry.”

Moffitt has won multiple Strength and Conditioning Coach of the Year awards in his expansive career. In his 25 years in college football, he has never coached a team that has not reached a bowl game. Evidently, he hasn’t lost his touch, either.

“When I got on the phone, two things jumped out to me really, really quickly,” Elko said. “One was how modernized his thoughts were, and how much he has evolved over the years to match what sports science has brought to strength and conditioning.

“Then, just his hunger still. I think he’s a guy who’s obviously accomplished so much in college football in strength and conditioning, but is extremely hungry to go build another program. Leave his mark on another university. I think he’s extremely hungry to get back into that national championship picture. When you combine those two things, I don’t know that there’s much more you could be looking for.”
