CHRIS GOFF | The Journal Gazette

New Indiana coach Archie Miller has hired Clif Marshall as head of strength and conditioning, the Hoosiers announced Thursday. The 36-year-old Marshall comes to IU from Ignition Athletics Performance Group, a multisport training firm based in Cincinnati, Ohio.

"I think Clif is a difference-maker," Miller said in a statement issued by IU. "He brings a wealth of experience and has worked with some of the top athletes in their respective professions. His ability to motivate and get the best out of those he trains will be a great asset."

Marshall's title will be director of athletic performance. He replaces Lyonel Anderson, who headed up the strength and conditioning program under Miller's predecessor, Tom Crean.

In the summer of 2015, Marshall designed a training program for Miller when Miller was coach at Dayton. Marshall also has worked in the NFL as a strength and conditioning assistant for Cincinnati and has served as a consultant for the Bengals since 2005. He got his start in the profession in college football, working as a strength assistant at Louisville, his alma mater.
