Chip Kelly hires former Navy SEALs trainer for Eagles’ staff

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...-eagles-staff/

When the Eagles announced new head coach Chip Kelly’s full coaching staff, one of the names on the list was Shaun Huls, the new sports science coordinator.

That raises a couple of questions: Who is Shaun Huls, and what is a sports science coordinator?

According to USA Today, Huls was the strength, conditioning and combatives coordinator for Navy Special Warfare, meaning he was training Navy SEALs before he took a job in which he’ll be training the Eagles.

That’s a surprising background for someone to become an NFL assistant coach, but with Kelly, maybe it shouldn’t come as a surprise. In a 2010 interview with the New York Times, Kelly said that in preparing his Oregon team for the up-tempo style that he prefers, he employed a lot of the same conditioning techniques that he had learned about from studying the way the Navy SEALs train.

“You see how they train the Navy SEALs,” Kelly said. “They squirt them with water, play loud music and do all these other things when they have to perform a task. That’s how we practice. We want to bombard our kids.”

With sports science coordinator Shaun Huls on the staff, the players on the Eagles should prepare to be bombarded with some intense offseason conditioning.

Andy Reid take note! I think they should incorporate this within the Chiefs organization as well.

I don't know that I get this or if Kelly is trying to get too cute. I get that this will help with conditioning and discipline, but isn't there a lot to be said for developing the right kind of muscles and agility, etc... for the position you play, rather than just saying a general goal is to get fitter and stronger? Maybe I'm being naive, but shouldn't we trust that the best qualified for football training?

Then again... this guy sounds like he may be coming in as a consultant. In which case, cool idea to bring outside expertise in to see if you can try something that's never been tried before.

I think a good base of fitness and strength would be beneficial for any pro athlete. That said there is something to say for specificity when it comes to developing muscle memory for specific tasks, and not overworking yourself. It's great to be able to bench 400lbs, but is that necessary for any football activity? Also, people forget about how important your workout routine is for your longevity. Certainly a kicker would not be using his time very well running up sand dunes. Morton Anderson kicked until he was 50 because he had a very specific work out regimin that focused entirely on what helped him as a kicker.

The good news is if they suck at football, at least they can kill the terrorists.
