SKWC Staff 2018-2019
Coach Goodale has announced the team of coaches and assistants that will support the SKWC for the upcoming year. In announcing his staff, Coach Goodale said, “this year’s staffing structure positions us for an outstanding year and for long term success.”
In addition to Coaches Pritzlaff, Leonardis, and Goodale, who begin their fifth consecutive year together, former All American Brian Murphy has joined the Rutgers staff as a Volunteer Coach. Joe Pollard, Billy Ashnault, Montell Marion, and Harry Turner return to the SKWC in new and expanded roles.
Joe Pollard is assuming the position of Director of Wrestling Operations with Rutgers and Youth Development Director with the SKWC. Joe will be responsible for coordinating the day-to-day operations of the wrestling program, including orientation of the freshman class, practice schedules, and team travel. Consistent with the SKWC’s mission to grow amateur wrestling, Joe will be responsible for Youth Development programs.
Billy Ashnault has accepted the position of head coach at Christian Brothers Academy and as a result has resigned his position with Rutgers. The good news is that Billy will remain with the SKWC as Director of Community Outreach, Marketing, and Development. Billy will organize clinics and other community programs, and he will also manage the Pin Pool, SKWC Membership, and Social Events.
We welcome Brian Murphy as a Volunteer Coach. Brian is a former All American from the University of Michigan, where he was a four time Big Ten place winner and national qualifier. Brian’s presence will be felt in the practice room as he trains with our middle and upper weights. Brian just returned from training in Italy with the Italian U 23 team, and plans to compete in international tournaments for the SKWC.
We are excited that Montell Marion returns for his second year as a Resident Athlete. Montell wrestled for the University of Iowa and is a two time national finalist and a three time All American. Last year, Montell had a significant impact on the success of our light and middleweights. After successful off season surgery, Montell looks forward to competing in a series of international tournaments.
Harry Turner, a former Assistant Coach at both Buffalo and Lock Haven and winner of over 90 matches as a Lock Haven wrestler, returns for his second year. Harry will be the Chief Assistant to the Rutgers coaching staff. His responsibilities will include working with upper weight wrestlers, organizing and running statewide clinics for high school coaches, and assisting the coaches with program management and practice planning.
Bryce Meredith, a two-time NCAA finalist, three time All American, and a Big 12 Conference Champion, will be joining the SKWC as a Resident Athlete. Prior to the 2016-2017 season Bryce wrestled Anthony Ashnault in the NWCA All-Star Classic. Bryce’s unique skills, passion, and experience will be of tremendous value to our wrestlers. In addition, we can expect to see Bryce compete in many international tournaments as he strives to make the 2020 Olympic team.
