Bryan Dermody retained as Assistant Strength Coach Dan Leberfeld

When Sal Alosi was suspended late last season, the Jets promoted assistant strength coach Bryan Dermody to his position, on an interim basis.

Now he’s going back to his old role as the Jets’ assistant strength coach under the team’s new strength coach, Bill Hughan.

Dermody joined the Jets organization before last season, after spending four years as a strength coach at Louisville.

Prior to coming to Louisville, Dermody spent four seasons at Drake University. As an assistant at Drake, Dermody directed the strength programs for the football, volleyball and track and field teams.

Prior to joining the Drake staff, Dermody served four seasons at Iowa working with the football program and was also an intern with the Hawkeyes for two seasons prior to that. As an intern, Dermody was involved with all aspects of the football strength and conditioning program, including the administration of the developmental program.

Dermody graduated from Lakeland College with a degree in Exercise Science with an emphasis on athletic training. While at Lakeland, Dermody served as a student assistant and was involved in the design and implementation of the strength and conditioning program for football and men’s basketball.

As a player, Dermody was a three-year starter at outside linebacker for the Musky football program. He served as captain as a senior, while earning Honorable Mention All-Illini Badger Conference and All-Academic honors. He was also named to the Verizon Academic All-American team.
