Greg Goldin has completed his third season as the Strength and Conditioning Coordinator for the men’s basketball program at LSU, continuing a long association with LSU Head Coach Will Wade.
Goldin has now worked seven seasons for Coach Wade at Tennessee-Chattanooga (2013-15), VCU (2015-17) and LSU (2017-present).
He previously also served as strength and conditioning coach under Steve Prohm at Murray State during the 2012-13 season and prior to that as graduate assistant under former VCU strength coach Daniel Roose during the 2011-12 campaign. During that season the Rams won the CAA championship and advanced to the NCAA Tournament.
Goldin has become well known for his efforts to integrate technological advancements in player wellness analytics, as well as devising a strength and conditioning routine to suit Coach Wade’s aggressive style of play. Measuring and managing wear and tear on the body, as well as giving clues about potential issues off the court has been part of the program Goldin has developed in putting together conditioning programs under Coach Wade.
Goldin believes that performance-monitoring technology is becoming more mainstream for college teams. He uses it as an educational tool to help athletes learn to take care of their bodies and to help coaches learn what they are doing to an athlete’s body.
He also works as strength and conditioning coordinator at LSU with the nationally-ranked men’s golf team, training them to be able to withstand the rigors of a season that encompasses the majority of the fall and spring semesters.
A native of Ilion, New York, Goldin is a 2011 graduate of Canisius College, where he received a degree in health and physical education, as well as health and human performance. He also received his graduate degree at Virginia Commonwealth University from the Center for Sports Leadership.
