David Feeley, who spent the 2008 through 2010 seasons at Florida International, has been named Ball State's strength and conditioning coordinator for football, according to the Cardinals' first-year head coach Pete Lembo.
"David Feeley comes highly recommended from a number of people I trust," Lembo says. "I enjoyed getting to know him through the hiring process. He learned from Jay Butler at Rutgers, who in my opinion, is one of the best strength coaches in the business. David made an impact at FIU and helped the Golden Panthers to their first bowl appearance in school history. His energy, work ethic, organizational skills and creativity will enable him to also make an impact with our student-athletes."
Feeley served as an assistant strength and conditioning coach at FIU, and assisted with all facets of the football team's training efforts plus was directly responsible for baseball, softball and tennis. He helped the football team to the 2010 Sun Belt Conference Championship and a berth in the Little Caesars Bowl. Feeley also assisted the baseball and women's tennis teams to 2010 Sun Belt Championships.
Prior to his work at Florida International, Feeley was a graduate assistant strength and conditioning coach at UNLV. He worked with the football team plus baseball, track and field, cross country, softball and cheerleading. Feeley spent the 2006 and 2007 seasons at UNLV.
Feeley also served a strength and conditioning internship at Fitness Quest 10 in San Diego, Calif., from 2001-07.
A 2004 graduate of Plymouth State, Feeley earned his master's from UNLV in 2008.
