Rosselot named director of strength and conditioning

 GAMBIER, Ohio – Jill McCartney, Kenyon College’s director of athletics, fitness and recreation, announced Friday that Chris Rosselot was hired as director of strength and conditioning, overseeing all 22 Owls sports.
                Rosselot’s workload at Kenyon will also include taking on the role of director of the Patterson Fitness Center and he will report directly to Mark Teeples, Kenyon’s assistant athletics director for sports performance and head athletic trainer.
                “We are thoroughly excited to welcome Chris into the Kenyon community. His broad knowledge base will prove beneficial in countless areas of Athletics and the College,” Teeples said. “He brings with him North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC) experience, as well as a diverse background that includes strength and conditioning, coaching and management of fitness programs.”
                Rosselot comes to Kenyon via nearby Otterbein University, where he worked as a coach both in strength and conditioning and within the football program. Prior to his time at Otterbein, Rosselot spent three years at Franklin College, an NCAA Division III institution in Franklin, Indiana. During that time, he also tackled two jobs, serving as the head of strength and conditioning for the Grizzlies’ 22 sports and as an assistant coach for the football program.
                Before Franklin, Rosselot took on similar capacities at Hiram College, a member of the NCAC. Beginning in 2013, he started as the strength and conditioning coordinator for Terriers football. In 2016, he was promoted to defensive coordinator and in 2019 he served as interim head coach.
                Certified as a National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) Strength and Conditioning Specialist and as a United States of America Weightlifting (USAW) Level 1-Sport Performance Coach, Rosselot’s resume also includes an internship with the NFL’s Cincinnati Bengals, an internship with University of Akron’s football program and a year of work as a sports performance supervisor at Akron General Sports Medicine.
                In December of 2012, Rosselot graduated from Mount Saint Joseph University with a degree in sport management. One year later, he departed Xavier University with a master’s degree of education in sport administration.
                Now, closer to home, Rosselot is eager to get to work at Kenyon.
                “This job is one that I’ve always watched from afar as a position on my short list. I always said if the opportunity ever presented itself, then I would jump at it,” Rosselot said. “I’m from the area and really see a strong future ahead at Kenyon. In this role, I not only want to establish strong relationships with coaches and student-athletes, but also really immerse my family into the community. I can’t wait to get started.”
