Mississippi State has hired Rick Court to replace Matt Balis as Strength and Conditioning Coach. Court comes from Ohio State where he was the associate director of S&C.

One has to immediately assume that Court comes with the recommendation of Mullen’s former boss, Urban Meyer. He has been with the Buckeyes for both of Meyer’s seasons at Ohio State. Before that he was the head S&C coach at San Diego State, Toledo and Bowling Green. In all, he has four years experience as the head S&C coach.
Rick Court graduated from Michigan State in 2002, so he is probably about 33-34 years old. He should fit right in.
