According to multiple reports, NC State has hired Jason Veltkamp to be head strength and conditioning coach for football. Veltkamp has held the same position at Arkansas since 2008.

With the selections of Jake Bequette, Joe Adams, Jarius Wright and Greg Childs in 2012, he has worked with 47 NFL Draft picks in his career. Others include four NFL first-round draft picks in defensive tackle Amobe Okoye (Houston), offensive tackle Jordan Gross (Carolina), quarterback Alex Smith (San Francisco) and offensive guard Eric Wood (Buffalo).

He also worked with basketball center Andrew Bogut (Golden State). Other professional athletes he has worked with include Jason Spitz (Green Bay), Steve Smith and Maake Kemoeatu (Carolina), Elvis Dumervil (Denver), Michael Bush (Chicago), Kolby Smith (Kansas City), Kerry Rhodes (Arizona), and Chris Kemeoatu and William Gay, both of whom played for Pittsburgh in Super Bowl XXLIII.

Veltkamp earned his master's degree in exercise science from Utah State in 1998 and is certified by the National Strength and Conditioning Association. He also is a member of the Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association and American Football Coaches Association.

Prior to being hired at Arkansas he worked at Louisville, Utah, and Utah State.

    Welcome aboard coach! Never heard of him before, but Arkansas players (this past year aside) have generally been beasts during his tenure.

    I dont think Doeren (spelling?) will be a good coach for State, but he is assembling a great staff.
