Salazar will oversee the team’s strength and conditioning and sport science departments.
Salazar arrives in Chicago with more than 10 years of strength and conditioning experience in the NFL with the Broncos, Chiefs and Vikings.
His duties at the USTA included oversight of the player development’s strength and conditioning team, and he was responsible for optimizing the support that the USTA provides to American players. “Players maximizing their potential in preparation, on the field, in recovery and rehabilitation is critical to their overall athletic performance and ultimately team success. To honor the late Clyde Emrich, a pioneer in this space, is very fitting for the director of high performance.”
Salazar served as the head strength and conditioning coach with the Vikings in 2016.
