TERRE HAUTE — Three members of the Indiana State athletics strength and conditioning staff, including two from Terre Haute, have advanced their careers and moved on to other opportunities.
Daniel Watson, former graduate assistant from Terre Haute North, has been hired by Rocky Mountain College to serve an assistant football coach and the head strength and conditioning coach.
Matt Seliger, also a former graduate assistant and North Patriot, has been hired by Athletes’ Performance in Frisco, Texas, to serve as an intern.
Watson completed his master’s in exercise science/coaching in the spring. While at ISU, he oversaw the program design and implementation for the golf, baseball, and softball teams. Watson also assisted with the pole vaulters.
“My time at ISU prepared me by providing a knowledgeable background and extensive experience in sport-specific team training,” Watson said. “I can’t thank the strength and conditioning staff, PE staff, athletic administration, fellow athletic coaches and athletes enough for my wonderful two years as a Sycamore.”
Watson is a 2011 graduate of Marian University, where he received a bachelor’s degree in exercise science with a focus in sports performance. While at Marian, he was a four-year member of the inaugural football team on which he served as a team captain. Watson also competed on the track team.
Seliger also completed his master’s in exercise science/coaching in the spring. He oversaw the program design and implementation for soccer, baseball, and the jumpers from the track team.
Seliger was a three-time letter-winner on the Sycamore football team, earning the President’s Council Academic Excellence Award from the Missouri Valley Conference in the spring of 2011 for receiving Missouri Valley Football Honor Roll all four years.
A third member of the ISU staff, former graduate assistant Devin Dubois, has been hired by Baylor Athletic Performance to serve as an assistant.
