Frank Wintrich

Frank Wintrich joined the Virginia football program as its director of football performance in January of 2016. He comes to UVA with 13 years of experience on the collegiate level, including the 2015 season at BYU as a member of Bronco Mendenhall’s staff.

Wintrich provides the Cavaliers with integrated short and long term physical preparation training. A highlight of this training is the implementation of the multi-year system of training known as P.A.D.S. This program incorporates a holistic approach to the development of athletes, ensuring the mastery of one skill before moving forward with the development of a more advanced skill.

Training begins with developing the minds of athletes through the utilization of the Self Aware Athlete program. This educational resource teaches athletes how to understand their bodies in order to better provide for their everyday physical and emotional needs. Performance Program Principles dictate athletes train safely, with a focus on strength development along with skills specific to their individual needs and most importantly developing the Warrior Mindset — a program established in conjunction with former USMC Force Reconnaissance Marines and PhDs in sport psychology.

Prior to BYU, he spent four seasons at North Texas as the director of football performance where he helped the Mean Green advance to their first bowl appearance in 10 years. He arrived in Denton from South Florida, where he was the associate director of strength and conditioning for three seasons for the Bulls, helping USF advance to three bowl games from 2008 to 2010.

He spent two seasons (2006 and 2007) as the director of athletic development at The Citadel, directing the strength program that provided all aspects of athletic development for 15 varsity sports. Under his leadership, the program underwent a total makeover, including renovation of the strength training facility, expansion of the athletic development staff and the unification of training protocols for all athletes, while primarily working with football and baseball.

Wintrich served for two seasons (2004-05) as an assistant strength and conditioning coach at Utah State and one year (2003) as a conditioning assistant at Arizona State. He began his strength and conditioning career as the head strength coach at Hardin-Simmons in 2002.

Wintrich earned his bachelor’s degree in sports and fitness management from Kentucky Wesleyan College in 2002. While at KWC, Wintrich was nominated team captain two consecutive years and was a two-time All-American at linebacker.

Frank Wintrich is the Director of Football Performance at the University of Virginia and brings over a decade of physical preparation experience at the collegiate level to the Onnit Honor Roll.
