2018 Head Coach Changes

Recommended Posts

If you're an assistant at a university that is highly successful, you're confident a good deal of that success is due to you, and that the current head coach is still long off from retirement - you're going to look elsewhere eventually. The situation at SDSU is prime for someone who fits that bill, and currently Hahn, and Pritzlaff are the two assistants who seem to keep coming up in head coaching job searches - except that I dont believe Pritzlaff is looking to leave RU just yet.  

 

Beazley was another great example of this. He wouldve been a tremendous fit for SDSU, but GM is lucky to have him

Coaching wrestling has one very big requirement.  Your guys have to believe your stuff is going to work.  They realize that today's wrestling is more "different" than the sport has ever been.  50 years ago, the granby was coming through for the 2nd time, and if you knew a hi-c you were ahead of the curve.  Athletes that wrestled 30 years ago, would have to have been super involved to even be on the same map as these gentlemen are today.  Guys that are still fisting the sky to get a stall call when the handshake is over, are from a different generation.  These coaches today should be young and able to get on the mat and make it look real, as part of the job description.

Wrestling has come a ways since the 70's but funny how Cael has brought back the ankle pick and arm drags, fireman's carries, and peterson's can still be effective when those skills are practiced, even at high levels.

Concerned about Edinboro's Program & long term viability after losing Coach Flynn, Sean Russell, & Dakota Geer.

 

Really, really don't want to see any more D1 Wrestling casualties.

Yep, plus Big Bruce changing roles and the whole staff joining Flynn - which likely means none of them applied for the job. 

This is sad. I really want them to be a top 10 team annually. Always rooting for the little guy, guess I have Loch Haven now.
