Stanford football promotes Carroll in sports performance

Stanford Director of Football David Shaw announced Tuesday that Cullen Carroll has been named the Director of Football Sports Performance. Carroll is entering his sixth season working with Stanford football.

“Coach Carroll has not only trained for this opportunity, he is a perfect fit to focus on keeping our team healthy while he pushes them to get stronger and faster,” Shaw said. “Cullen has the respect of our team and coaches and is dedicated to helping Stanford football reach our goals on and off the field.”

“I am thrilled and honored by the opportunity to further develop our tremendous Football student-athletes here under Coach Shaw and his staff,” Carroll said. “The long-standing physical, intellectual and technician-based culture in the program is something that I am privileged to continue to foster and contribute to.

“I’m very grateful to Coach Shaw for this incredible opportunity to continue impacting the Stanford Football family. I’m also extremely thankful to Bernard Muir, Heather Owen and the entire administration for their support during this process.”

Carroll began his time with the Cardinal as an intern in 2014 before moving into his current role. The position was endowed in 2013 following the generous gift of John Kissick and his family.

“The men have been training with great urgency and intent this offseason and that intensity will continue to rise this summer and into the season,” Carroll continued. “As a program, this offseason we’ve prioritized overall team leadership, sudden total strength and the ability to strain and finish regardless of the situation.”

Carroll previously served as the sports performance coach for both the Stanford men’s swimming and men’s gymnastics programs while assisting with the wrestling program. The men's swimming program earned back to back Pac-12 titles under Carroll's direction in 2015-2016.

Before coming to Stanford, Carroll assisted with all aspects of football sports performance at Wake Forest in 2013. While there, Carroll also served as the head rugby performance coach.

A native of Petaluma, Carroll holds a master's degree in Kinesiology from San Jose State and a bachelor's degree in Exercise Science from Willamette University, where he was an All-Northwest Conference linebacker.

Carroll began his collegiate coaching career as a student assistant serving as the head strength and conditioning coach for the Willamette football program after his eligibility was up.
