Dr. John P. Wagle

Written Exam Board

Dr. John P. Wagle is a fellow in the Sport Physiology and Performance program at East Tennessee State University. He serves as the Strength & Conditioning Coach and Sport Scientist for ETSU baseball. Additionally, Wagle assists Dr. Brad DeWeese in training implementation and athlete monitoring design of Olympic Training Site athletes. Wagle has been an invited speaker on a number of topics, including periodization and programming tactics, athlete monitoring, and accentuated eccentric loading.

Prior to the opportunity to join ETSU, Wagle was the Director of Sports Performance at DePaul University, overseeing all aspects of the department and working specifically with men’s basketball, women’s softball, and men’s tennis. In a previous role with DePaul, as the Assistant Director of Sports Performance under Mac Calloway, he added track and field and women’s soccer to his teams of service. At the high major collegiate level, Wagle has had the privilege of coaching 3 All-Americans, 10 conference players of the year, and well over 50 all-conference selections across a variety of sports.

Wagle received his M.S. in Exercise Science from Western Illinois University and completed his undergraduate work at Augustana College (IL), majoring in Physics. He also holds two graduate degrees in business administration from Loyola University (MBA) and North Park University (MS, Non-Profit). Wagle earned certification from several well-regarded governing bodies in the field of strength and conditioning, including the CSCCa, NSCA, and USAW.

As a collegiate athlete, Wagle was an All-American baseball player and holds standing school records in several offensive categories. Following his career at Augustana, he continued his playing career for two seasons of minor league baseball. Wagle was also an NCAA Post-Graduate Scholar — the only Division III baseball player selected for this honor during that academic year.
