College hockey: Johnson named Golden Knights’ strength coach


POTSDAM — Clarkson University hired Tad Johnson to be the strength and conditioning coach for its men’s and women’s hockey teams on Tuesday.

Johnson, who worked in a similar position at the University of Minnesota, replaces Jaime Rodriguez, who left to take a job as a strength and conditioning coach for Oregon State football.

“Tad has a great knowledge and passion for the development of athletes and will be a big asset for our program going forward,” Clarkson men’s head coach Casey Jones said. “We are excited and very confident that Tad will challenge and push our players to be their best.”

Johnson earned a bachelor’s degree in human performance and fitness from Northern State University in 2010 and gained a master’s degree in applied kinesiology from Minnesota in 2012. He is a native of Spearfish, S.D.
