Meyer Named Offensive Line Coach

Wolfpack head football coach Chuck Amato has announced that Pat Meyer, an 11-year coaching veteran in strength and conditioning, has been named offensive line coach at NC State.

Meyer has been on the Wolfpack staff since Amato's first year (2000) and has been the director of strength and conditioning since 2004.

Meyer spent his first four seasons with the Wolfpack as the head strength and conditioning coach and has dramatically helped improve the strength and fitness of the squad during his tenure. The football team collectively lost 700 pounds while improving in nearly every strength and conditioning category over Meyer's first six months on the job. The team's average bench press increased 21 pounds, the average squat improved 52 pounds and the power clean numbers rose 26 pounds in that span.

Meyer came to NC State after spending three years on the Memphis coaching staff, serving as the tight ends coach in 1997 and as an assistant strength and conditioning coach in 1998 and 99.

Meyer spent 1995 with the NFL's Arizona Cardinals and the 1996 season with the St. Louis Stampede in the Arena League as a player.

A four-year starter on the offensive line for Colorado State from 1991-94, Meyer was the captain of the 1994 squad that won the WAC Championship. He was a three-time All-WAC and All-WAC Academic selection for the Rams.

Meyer, a native of Youngstown, Ohio, is married to the former Erin Chuey and the couple has a three-year old daughter Christina.
