WVU Wrestling Coach Turnbull's Contract Not Renewed
Posted by WVU Sports Communications
West Virginia University Director of Athletics Oliver Luck announced today
that Craig Turnbull's contract as head wrestling coach will not be renewed for next season.
"Craig has spent the last 36 years as the head of the Mountaineer
wrestling program, and we appreciate his many years of service to West
Virginia University," Luck said. "He took
over at the helm of the WVU wrestling program in 1979 after serving as
an assistant coach here under Frank Liechti, coaching hundreds of
Mountaineer wrestlers along the way. We wish him the best."
Turnbull guided the Mountaineers to a 287-214-9 career record. This
season, the Mountaineers posted an 11-7 overall record and a 0-3 mark in
the Big 12.
A national search for a new wrestling coach at WVU will begin immediately.
