Glenn Cain Jr.
Glenn Cain doesn't back down from a challenge. A record-setting thrower as a student-athlete, Cain paved the way for Frostburg State University's first-ever strength and conditioning program and served as the Bobcats' inaugural strength and conditioning coach before joining the Kansas Athletics staff in July of 2011.
The Trenton, N.J., native earned his bachelor's degree in health sciences from Gettysburg College in 2007, after a stellar career that saw him set indoor track and field marks in the weight throw, hammer throw and discus. Cain earned his master's degree in exercise science from Springfield College, where he served as a strength and conditioning graduate assistant. As part of his postgraduate work, Cain interned with Rutgers University (2007), KU (2008) and the University of Connecticut (2009).
Cain was a two-sport athlete in high school and college, participating in track and field and football, and was inducted into the Ewing High School Athletic Hall of Fame in 2009. He is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) and member of the National Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association (NSCA).
