The Purdue football program has announced that Domenic Reno has been promoted to director of football strength and conditioning. The athletic department sent out a statement on Friday regarding the change.

Reno will be entering his fourth season with the Boilermakers and his seventh year with head coach Jeff Brohm, dating back to the Western Kentucky days. Reno previously served as the associate director of football strength and conditioning at Purdue.

“Dom has earned this role and is the perfect fit to lead our strength and conditioning program,” Brohm said. “He has a wealth of experience and expertise in training and developing elite athletes, both in the professional and collegiate ranks. He has worked within our system for several years now and is very familiar with our program and the players. We know he will do a great job.”

 In 2017, Reno was named the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach of the Year.

Purdue finished the 2019 season with a 4-8 record, failing to make a bowl game for the first time under Brohm. The Boilermakers open the 2020 campaign in Lincoln against Nebraska.
