Eric Hohn (pronounced "HONE") is in his first year at UNLV as strength and conditioning coach for the football program but he is no stranger to college football. Hohn's three decades of experience include stints as an assistant at the University of Washington before serving as the head strength and conditioning coach at California from 1991-97 and then in the same capacity at Weber State from 1998-2012.
A member of the University of Oregon track and field team from 1980-82, Hohn graduated with his bachelor's degree in physical education from the school in 1982 and was a part-time assistant coach at his alma mater for two years. He then served as a graduate assistant strength and conditioning coach at the University of South Carolina while earning his master's degree before heading to Seattle to join the Huskies.
"Eric is someone with great experience and knowledge and is tremendously accomplished in this profession," head coach Bobby Hauck said. "I've known him for many years and while we were at Montana and Washington, you always knew facing the teams he worked with at Weber State and Cal meant physical battles on the field."
