Georgia Tech makes two hires for strength and conditioning

Georgia Tech has added two coaches to the staff of football strength and conditioning coach Lewis Caralla. Kyle Seger and Edward Thompson have joined the football team as player development coaches, coach Geoff Collins announced Thursday.

Seger comes to Tech from Temple, where he was a graduate assistant for two years in the weight room. Notably, he helped Tech director of applied sports science Ryan Horton (who was also at Temple) in using GPS technology as a training device for team members. Seger, originally from Indiana, played defensive end at Ball State before going into coaching.

Thompson has served a string of internships, starting at his alma mater Louisiana Lafayette (where he played defensive back), then Houston, LSU and most recently the New York Giants. He also held a full-time assistant strength-and-conditioning coach position at Austin Peay before interning with the Giants.
