Kaz Kazadi, M.Ed., SCCC, USAWKaz Kazadi was brought to the Baylor Athletic Department in January 2008. He serves as the Assistant Athletics Director.
Under Kazadi's direction, the Baylor Athletic Performance Department has grown tremendously. Since his arrival, three additional positions have been created within the department and the Simpson Athletic Center has been outfitted as one of the premier facilities in the country.
Kazadi brings to Baylor a no nonsense approach to athletic performance that is focused on the development of the entire individual. Encouraging student athletes to be mentally tough, emotionally stable, and disciplined in all aspects of their life is every bit as important to Kazadi's program as getting them physically strong or fast.
Prior to his arrival at Baylor, Kazadi was the Assistant Director at the University of South Florida. He also spent two seasons as the assistant strength coach for the Kansas City Chiefs after a short stint at the University of Missouri.
Kazadi graduated from the University of Tulsa and went on to play football professionally after being drafted in the 6th round by the St. Louis Rams. Upon completion of his professional football career, he headed to the University of Missouri to receive his Master's Degree. He holds certifications from the Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association and USA Weightlifting.
Kazadi and his wife Monique have three children, Ra-sun, Isis, and Rohon.
