8th NFL season (5th with Broncos)

Luke Richesson enters his eighth NFL season and fifth year as the Denver Broncos’ strength and conditioning coach in 2016. He was named to his current position on Feb. 15, 2012.

Named the NFL’s 2013 Strength and Conditioning Coach of the Year by Samson Equipment and American Football Monthly, Richesson is responsible for directing the club’s year-round strength and conditioning program.

He came to Denver in 2012 from Jacksonville, where he served as the head strength and conditioning coach for the Jaguars for three seasons (2009-11). Prior to his tenure in Jacksonville, he served as the performance team director at Athletes’ Performance in Tempe, Ariz., from 2001-08, implementing programs to help elite college football prospects prepare for the NFL Combine as well as assisting NFL veterans in their training during the offseason.

In his eight years with Athletes’ Performance, Richesson trained 52 first-round selections, including four No. 1 overall picks, and more than 250 draftees overall.

Using adaptive training regimens for all types of athletes, including former UFC Heavyweight and WBC Light Heavyweight champions, he regularly applies mixed martial arts and other modern workout techniques in his specialized programs.

Richesson began his career in 1997 at his alma mater, the University of Kansas, following four seasons playing safety for the Jayhawks and earning his bachelor’s degree in exercise science. He went on to pursue graduate coursework and spent time on the coaching staffs at the University of Wyoming (1998) and Arizona State University (1999-2000).

He is married to Anita Nall-Richesson, who was a gold-medal winner in swimming at the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona and was inducted into the International Swimming Hall of Fame in 2008. The couple has a son, Luther (13), and a daughter, Sunny (11). Richesson was born on April 29, 1974, in Kansas City, Mo.
