Found January 24, 2012 on SCACC Hoops:

According to the Florida Times-Union, UNC football strength and conditioning coach Tom Myslinski will be leaving Chapel Hill to take a similar position with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Myslinski was with UNC for one season taking over for Jeff Connors who left for East Carolina after the 2010 season. He was also the only assistant coach from the Butch Davis era to be retained after Larry Fedora took over in December. The opportunity to jump to an NFL position is obviously too good to pass up so best wishes to Myslinski as he moves on.

Fedora will now need to hire a new strength and conditioning coach which is no small task. This is a position that is vastly underrated in terms of impact on team performance. The S&C coach is largely responsible for player regimen and ensuring the players are on track in terms of conditioning and development. Poor conditioning and insufficient strength training has definite on the field results not to mention makes players more susceptible to injury. This will be a hire worth watching, especially at this state of the year when most coaching positions are settled and everyone is focused on National Signing Day.
