Adeirele Oderinde is in his first year as the coordinator of speed and conditioning at West Virginia. He joined the Mountaineer football staff after serving as the assistant strength and conditioning coach at Western Kentucky for the past year.

Prior to WKU, Oderinde spent three seasons as the men's basketball strength and conditioning coach at South Carolina - joining the Gamecocks staff in January of 2010. He was in his second season as a member of Notre Dame's staff, before leaving for USC.

At Notre Dame, he was the speed/skills development coach and assisted with the strength program for the Fighting Irish football team while overseeing programs for the track and field, and men's and women's golf teams.

Prior to coming to Notre Dame, Oderinde severed three seasons as an assistant strength and conditioning coach at WKU, and four years on the school's staff. While there, he developed and implemented strength and conditioning programs for the school's men's basketball and softball squads. During his tenure, the Hilltoppers saw a significant increase in vertical leaps and total strength.

Oderinde also assisted with the WKU athletics program's nutrition regimen and was responsible for the purchase of training equipment used by the men's basketball program.

As a senior at WKU, Oderinde recorded a career-best 45 total tackles (31 unassisted) with nine stops for loss including a sack. A starter in 12 of WKU's 13 games, his efforts helped the Hilltoppers rank in the top 20 nationally in four of five team statistical categories.

Oderinde, a four-year letterwinner with the Hilltoppers, played in 10 games as a junior as WKU won the 2002 Division I-AA (now Bowl Championship Subdivision) national championship, the school's first in any sport. He collected 18 tackles with three for loss and a pass breakup that season. In 2001, he played in all 12 games with three starts, collecting 28 tackles (17 unassisted) with eight stops for loss (20 yds.) and three sacks (13 yards).

During his career, WKU posted a 40-13 (.755) record and advanced to the NCAA Division I-AA playoffs in four consecutive years for the first time in school history.

Oderinde, a 2004 graduate of Western Kentucky, is married to the former, Amber Robey.
