The Milwaukee Bucks today announced that Troy Flanagan has been added to the team’s training staff as the Director of Performance. Flanagan brings extensive experience working with world-class professional and Olympic athletes to the Bucks organization.

“Troy is one of the most innovative and respected professionals in the field, and we couldn’t be more pleased to welcome him to the Bucks family,” Bucks Co-Owner Wes Edens said. “Our amazing athletes are the centerpiece of our organization, and we are committed to being on the cutting edge of advancements in athletic performance programs and techniques. Troy is uniquely qualified to lead that charge for us.”

Flanagan joins the Bucks after most recently serving as the Director of Sport Science and the Director of High Performance for the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Association (USSA). In his new role, Flanagan will oversee the physical preparation, sports medicine, sports technology and software development, sports physiology, performance analytics, dietetics, sports psychology, anticipation training and player wellness programs for the Bucks.

A licensed sports physiologist with additional background in sports technology development, including a Ph.D. in aerospace engineering, Flanagan has over 20 years of experience working with professional athletes in the United States and Australia. During his eight years with the USSA, Flanagan oversaw the sport science and high performance services for the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Teams at both the 2010 and 2014 Olympic Winter Games. Flanagan also spent 14 years as a sport scientist in the innovative sports institute program in Australia (primarily at the Victorian Institute of Sport), which is responsible for preparing the Australian Olympic team.
