Michigan announced today that Jon Sanderson will be replacing Mike Curtis as strength and conditioning coach for the basketball programs as well as Olympic sports. Sanderson comes to Michigan from Clemson and also played college basketball at Ohio State University and Ohio University.
"I cannot tell you how excited I am to accept this position and be a part of the Michigan athletic family," said Sanderson. "As a former Big Ten Athlete I understand the demands of our student-athletes and will coach them at the highest level with passion and integrity. I look forward to contributing in every aspect of the Michigan athletic strength and conditioning program."
"We were able to establish, for our players, a great foundation of our strength and conditioning over the last two years," said U-M men’s basketball head coach John Beilein. "We love Jon’s innovated thinking regarding basketball-specific strength training. We are confident he will step right in and have an immediate positive impact on our players’ development."
