UM announces Feeley as director of S&C, releases statement

The University of Miami has hired David Feeley as its new Director of Strength and Conditioning for Football, head coach Manny Diaz announced Saturday.

Feeley comes to UM after spending the past two seasons at Temple University. Overall, Feeley is entering his 14th season in college football.

“David is an outstanding coach who has a strong track record of motivating players to help them reach their full potential,” Diaz said. “The culture we’re putting into place and the tone we set for the upcoming season starts in the weight room when our players return to campus. That’s why this hire was so critical and I’m thrilled to welcome David to the Miami program.”

Feeley helped the Owls compile a 15-11 record and advance to two bowls in his two seasons in Philadelphia. Prior to his stint at Temple, Feeley served as assistant strength and conditioning coach at the University of South Carolina for one season, where the Gamecocks earned a bid to the Birmingham Bowl.

Before arriving at South Carolina, Feeley worked as the director of football strength and conditioning at Ball State from 2011-15. During that time, he helped the Cardinals earn two bowl appearances and also assisted with the women's basketball team that made three consecutive NIT appearances.

From 2008-2010 Feeley was the assistant strength and conditioning coach at FIU. In 2010, he helped guide the Panthers to a 7-6 record and a win in the Little Caesar's Pizza Bowl -- the first bowl win in program history. Feeley also assisted with women's tennis, softball and baseball during his three years at FIU.

Feeley began his professional career as an intern at Rutgers and South Florida before becoming the strength and conditioning graduate assistant for football, women's track, softball and baseball at UNLV from 2006-07.

A native of Brick, N.J., Feeley is a 2004 graduate of Plymouth State University, where he was a member of the football team for four years, serving as team captain during his senior season.

Everyone lauded the Felder hire. I’m lead to believe that 99 pct of posters have zero idea what they are talking about

The anecdotal evidence I’ve heard so far has helped me warm up to this hire.

I think the guy deserves a shot. Trust Manny until he gives you a reason not to.

Manny kept Patke, Rumph, and Banda on staff. Those are 3 good reasons not to trust him. You gonna have your heart broken if you trust that man.

He fits the mold of the type of coaches he wants. Let’s see what winter workout results look like.
