Charland to head strength and conditioning at Temple


Temple named Scott Charland head strength and conditioning coach on Thursday. In this capacity, Charland will supervise all of the Owls’ Olympic sports teams.

“Scott brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and enthusiasm to our strength and conditioning department,” said senior associate athletic director/ sports administration Joe Giunta. “He is the right person to lead the staff and our student-athletes for the future. As Temple Athletics begins a new era with the American Athletic Conference this fall, we have made several key additions in the areas of student-athlete wellness, and Scott’s role in this development is key to the success we anticipate.”

Charland spent the previous five years as the director of strength and conditioning at Saint Louis University. Prior to that he spent three years as an assistant at Ohio State, where he designed and implemented strength and conditioning programs for eight teams.

“I am very excited to become a member of the Temple University family,” said Charland. “Temple has a strong tradition of athletic excellence and I hope to continue and build upon that tradition.”
