Assuming Dayton hires a new strength coach before the 2019-20 season, it will be the third strength coach in as many years. Streit replaced Casey Cathrall, who left for a position at the University of Miami after one season with the Flyers. The previous strength coach, Patrick O’Neal, was with the program for two seasons.

Streit has provided updates on Dayton’s workouts throughout the offseason on social media.
