Andrea Hudy is her name and, according to (former Deadspin Bentern) Ben Cohen's nice profile in the Wall Street Journal, she is believed to be Division I's only strength and conditioning coach who is simultaneously female. Hudy began her career at UConn, where she worked with both the men's and women's basketball…
