    Default New head coach

    Obviously Reader would be top choice, but it sounds like is following Bono. It is imperative to get a known guy and get him in here quick to keep it rolling. Who are the candidates?

    It would be great to get Reader, but he might feel he isn't ready after only 4 seasons as an assistant. He also still seems to be interested in wrestling on the international level, which might not work as well with being a head coach as opposed to an assistant.

    I wonder if Bono had any discussions or ideas on a good replacement should he ever leave SDSU with Justin. Being the type of guy he is, If he knew of a good replacement that's available, he'd relay that to Sell for his consideration.There must be a few that would fit here that are looking that he (Bono) would think would carry on his work.

    Zim's article said Reader is going with Bono and that Bono did give input on potential successors.

    Hope itís some real great candidates, would be an absolute shame to lose any of what Bono has built. I really feel we canít replace him, at least not fully. Hopefully get a good coach who can keep the program going at its current level and capitalize on their momentum.

    If we could get him, I like Jordan Burroughs. He won a Gold Medal in 2012 and is currently at Nebraska. He has a huge following of over 200k on Twitter.

    Not surprising but such a bummer! I really wanted to believe that the support from the athletic dept, the buy-in from the community, competing in the big 12 and finishing 12th in the nation could raise SDSU Wrestling above the springboard life of a mid-major. That being said, let the search begin for SDSU's next future Big10 coach! Decision needs to be made quick so the new coach can get on the phone with the incoming class... and Brown. Scares me that he has a redshirt year available, makes the year off after a transfer easier to swallow. Some possibilities:

    - Ben Askren - Finalist for the Wisconsin job and had it not been for Bono, he may have got the job. No idea if our position is appealing to him, may be looking at Michigan as well.

    - Bryan Snyder - He's been a Nebraska Asst for 8 years so he can certainly recruit in the region. Flow says, "As respected as anyone in the NCAA wrestling community. In addition to a strong history of development in the middleweights, Snyder also brings a tremendous amount of international cache. Snyder was instrumental in the successes of James Green and Jordan Burroughs, and wrestlers with international aspirations will know theyíre in good hands wrestling for him."

    - Jarrod Garnett - Has been a NDSU assistant for 3 years. I don't know much about him but the guys over on Bisonville think he'll snag a head coaching position somewhere. Anyone know much about him?

    - Alex Clemsen - Assistant at Mizzou for four years, was at Virginia before that. Has a ton of experience with successful programs, seems like he's due for a head coaching opportunity.

    - Luke Becker - Minnesota Assistant. With Eggum just taking over, the wait at UM will probably be long. Would be great to continue our recruiting in Minnesota.


    Thoughts?

    If we canít get Burroughs, which is a long shot because it sounds like he wants to compete through 2020, then my vote is for the man who trained him. Letís hire Bryan Snyder.

    Great names. I think Askren is a long shot. He might be a bit too abrupt for Brookings. Also might be too hard to wrangle in his opinions. I personally think he single handedly changes college wrestling when he gets a job. This might be sac religious on this page, but he has a higher celiling than Bono.

    The other name to consider is Damion Hahn from Cornell. national champ for the gophers, and has developed how many national champs at Cornell for the past 10 years. Guy is a stud. He could recruit MN with his connections there and could likely snag a few east coast guys. He was the other finalist for the Badgers.

    Definitely agree on Hahn. If he has any interest, they'd better be interviewing him.
