Terry Brands replacing Steve Fraser?

Recommended Posts

Terry Brands is set to replace Steve Fraser as US National Greco coach. Lots of us in the know are hearing this from VERY reliable sources. This is apparently why the selection will be announced in March which happens to be after the NCAA's.

 

The rumor is Terry can bring NCAA talent to the Greco program(s)...

 

If this is true about Terry what are your thoughts. I have my own that I will keep to myself until I see how people weigh in on this... By the way I like Terry very much as a coach and person. Not as Greco national coach candidate.

 

It will definitely set us back 20 yrs internationally from a respect standpoint.

 

Thoughts?

Whats the problem with it? Frasiers job had nothing to do with showing technique. Frasiers job was setting up competition and training schedules, recruiting athletes, and putting a system/environment in place that would give USA greco wrestlers the best chance to succeed.

 

How would Terry Brands be inadequate at those things?

But would Terry leave Iowa again is the question. He did well outside Iowa but went back. I will believe this when I see it, not because it is Greco, but because it ain't Iowa.

Agree. He did good things at Chattanooga and at the OTC, but decided that he would rather go Hawkeye style every day. I don't think that he'll change his mind.

Well he didn't accompany the team to Lehigh (unless they were running in and out of the arena very quickly)
