Greg Miskinis was added to the Penn State men's basketball staff as the program's strength and conditioning coach in June 2016. An eight-year veteran in the field, Miskinis is an assistant director of performance enhancement and has been with the Penn State athletics department since 2009.
He oversees all facets of performance enhancement for the Nittany Lion men's basketball program, including speed development, power production, explosive mobility, agility, conditioning, mental toughness, work ethic, proper warm-up and cool down techniques, flexibility and regeneration.
"The Penn State men's basketball program is excited to add Greg Miskinis to our staff," Chambers said. "He brings a tremendous amount of intensity, passion and dedication to the program, in addition to a proven track record of success with a number of Penn State's Olympic sports and football. He will be a valuable addition as we move forward into an exciting chapter of Penn State basketball."
A former letterwinner on the Nittany Lion football team, Miskinis has spent the last two and a half years working with the national champion women's soccer team, as well as the men's lacrosse program. He previously assisted with the strength and conditioning efforts of the football program, including a three-month stretch as the interim director of strength and conditioning for the athletics department.
"I am extremely excited for the opportunity to work with Coach Chambers and his great staff," Miskinis said. "This staff and group of young athletes are committed to working tirelessly to lift Penn State in all facets of the community, as well as continually raising the educational and athletic standards of the university. This will be a great challenge to continue to help raise the bar for Penn State men's basketball."
Prior to his full-time appointment with football, women's soccer and men's lacrosse team, he assisted the Penn State football team as a graduate assistant coach from 2009-2012 while receiving his Master of Education in health education (2011). He graduated from Penn State with a Bachelor of Science in kinesiology in 2008. Miskinis played football as tight end from 2004-2008.
Miskinis holds certifications from Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association (CSCCa), American Heart Association CPR/AED and Skogg Strength Coach Kettlebell.
