More Intensity, Faster Tempo In Year Two Of Paul Jackson

Wallace, Freshman Class Headline Workout Warriors

Describing him as "one of the young and up-and-coming stars in strength and conditioning," Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze named Paul Jackson strength and conditioning coach for his first Rebel staff on Jan. 9, 2012.

Now in his third season, Jackson's hard work and leadership have helped the Ole Miss program improve each year. With players that are noticeably stronger, faster and better able to run Freeze's tempo offense, the Rebels have achieved back-to-back bowl appearances and wins in Jackson's first two years with the program.

Jackson came to Oxford after spending 2011 at Southern Miss, where he oversaw the strength and conditioning for the entire USM athletics department with direct responsibility over the football program. His one season In Hattiesburg saw the football team soar to its best record in school history at 12-2, a Conference USA championship and a victory in the Hawaii Bowl.

Jackson arrived in Hattiesburg after serving the 2010 season as the Director of Athletic Conditioning for Football at Miami (Ohio). In his lone season at Miami, Jackson helped lead the Redhawks to the 2010 MAC championship and a victory in the 2011 GoDaddy.Com Bowl, while becoming the only team in NCAA history to go from double-digit losses one year to double-digit wins the next (1-11 in 2009 to 10-4 in 2010).

From 2007-10, Jackson served as an assistant strength coach at LSU, working directly with the Tigers football and volleyball teams. During his time in Baton Rouge, Jackson won an SEC and national championship with the football team as well as three consecutive SEC Western Division and one SEC championship with the volleyball team. While working for the Tigers, Jackson worked under and was mentored by strength and conditioning legend Tommy Moffitt.

A native of White Plains, New York, Jackson got his start in the business as a Professional Intern Strength Coach with the NFL's New York Giants. He also spent time as a Performance Enhancement Specialist at the Parisi Speed School in Garwood, N.J., where the focus is sport-specific speed and agility training as well as combine preparation.

Jackson is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association.

During his college days at Montclair State (N.J.), Jackson lettered in football, spending time at both fullback and linebacker. He earned a B.S. in physical education in 2006 and later received an M.S. in kinesiology from LSU in 2009.
