Awesome news!This is one guy Texas did not want to lose. Coach Roose was highly revered in Austin and in April had been awarded the title of Master Strength and Conditioning Coach from the College Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association. This is the highest honor in the field. He was instrumental in the rapid development of three big men at Texas in his four years who became 1st round draft picks. A highly regarded S&C Coach can have a substantial impact on recruiting. This is an area that is very important to potential recruits.
Great to have Coach Roose coming back. He will finish-up the summer training program at Texas before arriving in Richmond.
He must have known that before he went to Texas. Probably best for the strength and conditioning coach to get while the getting is good.If you ain’t working for the football team at Texas you’re just another member of the dept. but basketball strength coach at VCU...top of the heap
