Walker County Messenger - - Sports -

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.
