Football Strength & Conditioning Coach Todd Rice Resigns

Initially reported yesterday and later confirmed, news that strength and conditioning coach Todd Rice would be pursuing "other professional opportunities." Rice spent ten years as Tom O'Brien's S&C guy:

Rice recently completed his fifth season serving as the Director of Strength and Conditioning for football. He previously held the same position for five seasons at Boston College under Tom O'Brien.

I'm not going to pretend to know anything about the job Rice did here at NC State, though if there was some connection between Rice and the injury epidemic we've endured, it's strange that the same sort of thing didn't happen while he was with TOB at Boston College. And TOB has never hinted publicly that he felt the strength and conditioning program was a problem. If anything, he's deflected attention away from S&C.
