Fisher finalizes staff with great hire

As NoleDigest first reported when Jimbo Fisher began hiring his staff, Vic Viloria has been added on to be the Strength and Conditioning Coach at Florida State.

After three seasons at SMU, Vic Viloria will leave the state of Texas and head to Tallahassee, Florida. Prior to coaching SMU, Viloria was the assistant strength & conditioning coach at LSU for two years where he worked with the Tiger football, baseball, swimming and golf teams.

It is during his time with LSU where Viloria has ties to Jimbo Fisher. Fisher served as the offensive coordinator for the Tigers while Viloria was responsible for his athlete's S&C.

Viloria leaves SMU on a high note as he helped the Mustangs physically dominate Nevada in their bowl game defeating the Wolf Pack 45-10.

According to SMU's official website, Viloria graduated from SMU, and was a four-year letterman and three-year All-WAC performer as a Mustang player. He led SMU in tackles for three straight seasons and recorded at least 10 tackles in 21 games over his career before being drafted by the Scottish Claymores of NFL Europe.

A native of Chalmette, La., Viloria is married to the former Randi Taylor, a former SMU sprinter. They are the proud parents of a daughter, Taylor Ann, and also have two dogs, Lucy and Rocky.
