Ruschell added to Mocs’ wrestling staff
University of Tennessee at Chattanooga head wrestling coach Heath Eslinger has announced the addition of Kyle Ruschell to the Mocs wrestling staff.
Ruschell replaces David Hoffman who is leaving to become the head coach at his high school alma mater, The Hill School in Pottstown, Pa.
Ruschell spent the previous eight seasons as an assistant coach at Wisconsin.
A former member of the U.S. National Team (2014-15), he was a twotime All-American for the Badgers (2007-10).
“We are extremely excited to have Kyle join our staff,” stated Eslinger. “He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our program. He has been around college wrestling, as a coach and a competitor, for a long time. I am excited for him to use that experience to make Chattanooga wrestling better.”
As a member of the Wisconsin coaching staff, Ruschell specialized in leg riding, shot defense, scrambles, high level attacks and finishes. He coached five Badgers to seven AllAmerica honors.
Ruschell helped Isaac Jordan win his first Big Ten championship and earn four All-America honors during his collegiate career.
