Former Michigan and West Virginia head strength coach Mike Barwis is opening a training center for professional and high school athletes in Plymouth, Michigan.

We thought Barwis would land a head strength position this off-season at one of the major D1 programs, but it didn’t happen.

Barwis told the Detroit News, "My intention is always been to try and give back to people who struggle in life and just need uplifting and put them on their feet. I think that's what I'm good at.” 

"I think I'm good at picking people up and making them realize what they're worth in life and give them some self-value and pride."

The 8,000 square foot facility will be called Barwis Methods Training Center and will feature an indoor FieldTurf field.

Mothers and toddlers can be trained by the same guy that trained Pat White, Steve Slaton, and Owen Schmidt. There will also be a co-ed nightly boot camp.

Two years ago, Rich Rod was quoted as saying, "He's my guy. I won't go anywhere without him." Perhaps next year, Barwis will have another opportunity with Rich Rod.
