The University of Louisville sent out a press release today announcing that graduate assistant strength and conditioning coach Tony Jouaux has been hired to be a new strength and conditioning coach for the Chicago Fire. He joins a staff that saw Alvaro Briones be let go last fall. While at Louisville, Jouaux worked with the men's and women's soccer teams and field hockey team. You might remember that Louisville's men's soccer team advanced to the 2010 NCAA Championship game back in December only to lose 1-0. Jouaux is actually a native of France and is completing his Master's degree in Exercise Physiology with a concentration in strength and conditioning. In 2007, he received his Bachelor's degree in Sport Training and Sport Management at the University of Burgundy in Dijon, France. That same year, he also received his soccer coaching license. No stranger to the game himself, Jouaux suited up with the Louisville Lightning of the Professional Indoor Soccer League for two seasons. Congratulations to Tony Jouaux and welcome to Chicago! We wish you a long and productive stay.
