The Tarleton State athletic performance program has announced the hiring of its first-ever full-time assistant strength and conditioning coach, Adam Biehl.

Biehl comes to Tarleton from Gardner-Webb University in North Carolina, where he was the assistant director of strength and conditioning for the past two years. Prior to his time at Gardner-Webb, he was an assistant strength and conditioning coach at Coastal Carolina University.

Biehl earned his master's degree in kinesiology from Texas A&M, where he served as a Graduate Intern, and received his bachelor's degree in exercise science from Miami University of Ohio, where he also served as a student intern in the strength and conditioning program.

"We are very excited about having Adam join our Tarleton family," stated assistant athletic director for athletic performance Rod Cole. "Adding a full-time assistant with his experience and expertise is a big step forward for our athletic department. He has all the attributes, certifications, and experience we were looking for to make a home run hire in this position."

Biehl will be in charge of the strength and conditioning training for baseball, softball, and track & field, along with assisting Cole with the entire athletic performance program.
