Eagles hire former SEALs trainer

Feb. 11, 2013
 

In a sign of the continuing evolution of the NFL, new Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly has hired a "sports science coordinator" to work with the team's strength and conditioning coach, not replace him.

According to USA Today, Shaun Huls trained SEALs for the Navy before taking on his new job with the Eagles.

Huls and Josh Hingst, the team's strength and conditioning coach, will be training the team to play in Kelly's no-huddle offense, which is even faster paced than the no-huddle offenses currently run in the NFL.

With the advancement in the sciences of training and nutrition, this could be the start of a trend in the NFL, especially if Kelly has early success.
