Arizona Cardinals look to Mark Naylor to improve strength and conditioning program

Yesterday we looked at two of the old/new assistant coaches that the Arizona Cardinals brought in for the 2020 NFL season.

Today, we look at the new coaches that the Cardinals have brought in to be a part of the turnaround for the team.

Starting with assistant strength and conditioning coach Mark Naylor (#HireCox).

From the team:

Naylor joins the Cardinals from Eastern Kentucky University where he served as the Director of Sports Performance the past two seasons (2018-19) for the Colonels football team. He returns to the NFL after previously working as a strength and conditioning assistant with the Baltimore Ravens (2006-07). Prior to working at Eastern Kentucky, Naylor spent seven seasons (2011-17) as the assistant strength and conditioning coach at the University of Michigan where he worked under head coaches Jim Harbaugh and Brady Hoke.

He also spent three seasons (2008-10) as the Director of Strength and Conditioning at Ball State after working there as a graduate assistant from 2004-06. Naylor previously worked as an assistant strength and conditioning coach at Missouri Southern University (2003-04) and as an intern at Michigan State in 2003.

Welcome to the desert, Coach Naylor.
