Toby Jacobi joined the East Carolina University Athletics program as an assistant strength and conditioning coach in January 2012. He currently serves as the primary strength coach for the Pirates' men's basketball, men's golf and women's golf teams, while also assisting with implementation of the football speed, strength and conditioning program.
Jacobi spent nearly four years as head speed, strength and conditioning at Charleston Southern before moving to Greenville. He developed and implemented strength and conditioning programs for 10 Division I programs. His programs helped the Buccaneers' football team post back-to-back winning seasons in 2008 and '09, only the second time in school history that had occurred.
Jacobi returned to the Southeast after having served for almost two years at Kent State, where he coordinated the strength and conditioning programs for football and women's field hockey.
Prior to moving to Kent State, Jacobi spent more than five years in the Southern Conference, working in the strength and conditioning programs at Western Carolina and Elon. Before becoming a full-time staff member at Elon, he served in a graduate assistant role at Cumberland and North Carolina.
Jacobi earned a Bachelor of Science degree in physical education from Cumberland, where he was a four-year letterman on the football team.
He is married to the former April Banks of Fayetteville, Ga. The couple has two daughters, Sydney (6) and Millie (4).
