Penn State basketball has added Greg Miskinis to the staff as the program's strength and conditioning coach, Nittany Lion head coach Patrick Chambers announced late last week. Miskinis is an assistant director of performance enhancement and has been with the Penn State athletics department since 2009.

In his role, Miskinis will oversee all facets of performance enhancement for the Nittany Lion men's basketball program, including speed development, power production, explosive mobility, agility, conditioning, mental toughness, work ethic, proper warm-up and cool down techniques, flexibility and regeneration.

"The Penn State men's basketball program is excited to add Greg Miskinis to our staff," Chambers said in a statement. "He brings a tremendous amount of intensity, passion and dedication to the program, in addition to a proven track record of success with a number of Penn State's Olympic sports and football. He will be a valuable addition as we move forward into an exciting chapter of Penn State basketball."

Miskinis has spent the last two and a half years working with the national champion women's soccer team, as well as the men's lacrosse program. He previously assisted with the strength and conditioning efforts of the football program, including a three-month stretch as the interim director of strength and conditioning for the athletics department.

"I am extremely excited for the opportunity to work with Coach Chambers and his great staff," Miskinis said. "This staff and group of young athletes are committed to working tirelessly to lift Penn State in all facets of the community, as well as continually raising the educational and athletic standards of the university. This will be a great challenge to continue to help raise the bar for Penn State men's basketball."

He replaces former strength coach Brandon Spayd, who left to take a similar position at the University of Alabama at Birmingham this spring.
