Northern State U "suspends" wrestling for two seasons

Northern State University suspends its NCAA Div. II mat program for two years

Northern State University will suspend its NCAA Division II wrestling program for the next two seasons – 2015-16, and 2016-17 – to evaluate the future of the Wolves mat program, the South Dakota school announced Monday.

 

In a statement posted at the NSU wrestling website, President Dr. James Smith and Director of Athletics Josh Moon said that during the two-year suspension, “a comprehensive review will be conducted to examine the long-term viability of a competitive wrestling program and evaluate funding models necessary to elevate the program's standing in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) and NCAA Division II.”

Looking at the article it seems they want some funding through the boosters and/or alumni.

 

This plan was probably in the works already, and with the coach resigning, it made the plan that much easier.

 

Still it does not make any sense to "suspend" the program during this 2 year evaluation.
