McCullough worked with the Dukes' defensive backs for three seasons prior adding strength and conditioning duties in the spring of 2013.
He began working exclusively in strength and conditioning prior to the 2013 season.
In 2011, McCullough worked closely with a unit that led the nation in pass defense (139.3 ypg.) and produced third team AP All-America safety Serge Kona. In 2012, the DU secondary led the NEC and finished 24th nationally in pass efficiency defense.
The Bethlehem, Pa. native returned to his alma mater after coaching the secondary and outside linebackers at Moravian College in his hometown for two seasons.
In 2008, he was part of a staff that led the Greyhounds to an 8-3 overall record, a 6-2 Centennial Conference mark and an appearance in the ECAC Division III Southwest Bowl Championship game.
McCullough, who finished his career sixth on DU's career list with 545 carries, rushed for 2,085 yards and 13 touchdowns while playing for four MAAC championship teams. He was a freshman on DU's I-AA Mid-Major National Champion 2003 squad.
McCullough completed his degree in multi-media technology and communications in 2007 and added a master's degree in sports leadership from Duquesne in December of 2012.
He earned his NSCA strength and conditioning certification in the summer of 2013.
