Cody Brewer has been elevated from volunteer to assistant. The article mentions Mike McMullen leaving coaching. Anyone know details about that?

Man, McMullen's sweater game is not going to be easily replaced.  A void for all of collegiate wrestling imo...

NW was one of the great stories in D1 last season.  They'd taken a lot of hits yet suddenly emerged with a competitive squad stocked with some terrific young talent.  Kudos to all their coaches.  Obviously, Brewer is one of the reasons.

They have a great young coaching staff.  Andrew Howe was pretty much a Pritzlaff protege.  Pritzlaff has proven to be a very solid mat coach.  Howe appears to be trending in that direction.

 

When Pariano left, very few gave Storniolo much of a chance.  It seems he has really got things moving in the right direction quickly!

Would've looked even better still with Micic in the line-up.

NW kids don't seem to want to coach all that much, huh? McMullan probably found there wasn't enough green stuff in his future as a coach, same as Jake Herbert. 

 

I enjoyed McMullan's "scrapper" mentality. Still remember that tall, kinda skinny HWT he was when wrestling as a FR!

 

Regarding Howe, I have to say his mat work was never that impressive to me. His takedowns were outstanding, though. His wrestling style changed a whole lot from his FR year at Wisconsin to his SR year at OU.

I actually coached Storniolo when he was 6-7 years old.  Even then I told his mother he was going to be a star.  He could fold his body like a pretzel and come out the other side. 

 

I too thought he didn't have much of a chance to succeed, given the state of NW's team when he took over. But he certainly has it moving in the right direction.  



I haven't reported my missing credit card to the police because whoever stole it is spending less than my wife.
