Buddy Morris enters his sixth season as the Cardinals strength and conditioning coach after being hired on 3/4/14. Previously with the Cleveland Browns (2002-04), Morris returned to the NFL in 2014 with the Cardinals after working at the collegiate level for 19 years.
A native of South Park, PA, Morris has an extensive background in strength and conditioning dating back to his first job at his alma mater, the University of Pittsburgh, where he began his career in 1980 in the first of his three stints with the Panthers. He worked under head coach Jackie Sherrill from 1980-89 and aided in the development of future NFL Hall of Famers Dan Marino, Rickey Jackson, Chris Doleman and Russ Grimm. During that period, Morris worked with 13 first round NFL draft picks and 15 first-team All-Americans.
