West Virginia University Director of Athletics and Associate Vice President Shane Lyons announced today that wrestling head coach Sammie Henson’s contract will not be renewed for the 2018-19 season.
“I want to thank Coach Henson for his time here leading our wrestling program,” Lyons said. “We will immediately begin a national search to identify our next wrestling coach. I firmly believe WVU can excel in wrestling, and I look forward to our future success.”
In his four years at West Virginia, Henson compiled a 27-39 overall record and a 5-14 Big 12 mark. His 2018 squad finished 6-7, ninth at the Big 12 Tournament and 30th at the NCAA Championships with one All-America.
Henson was inducted into Pittsburgh's Wrestling Classic Hall of Fame on Sunday, March 25.
