    New head coaching candidates?

    How about this choice...


    Name Jim Makovsky
    Position Head Wrestling Coach

    Now entering his 16th season at the helm of the Minnesota State wrestling team, Jim Makovsky is considered one of the premiere coaches in any level of collegiate wrestling as he has developed the Maverick wrestling program into one of the preeminent wrestling programs in the nation.
    Makovsky reached his 200th career win last season as he currently sits at a 215-84-5 (.720) overall record. This year, he will look to secure his 200th collegiate victory as the Mavericks’ head coach, as he currently sits at a record of 190-65-2 (.740). He reached the 100-win plateau during the 1998-99 season with a 39-10 victory over Southwest Minnesota State University. Fifteen of his losses have come against some of the top NCAA I wrestling programs in the Country (Minnesota, Iowa, Iowa State, Wisconsin, Northern Iowa).
    Since taking over the MSU wrestling program in 1993-94, Makovsky’s teams have never finished lower than 17th at the NCAA tournament. The personable Makovsky led the Mavericks to two second-place finishes (1993-94, 2007-08), a third-place finish in 2004-05, a fourth-place finish in 2006-07 and a trio of sixth-place finishes (1994-95, 1998-99 and 2000-01) with 10 top-nine finishes at the national tournament.
    Last season Makovsky led the Mavericks to a team dual record of 20-1-1 with their only loss coming to Nebraska- Omaha who won the conference, with the 20 wins establishing a MSU single-season record. The squad concluded the year second in the North Central Conference, first at the NCAA regional tournament, first at the National Duals tournament and second at the NCAA national tournament.
    Under his tutelage, Makovsky has coached nine national champions in his career and 69 All-Americans, including two-time heavyweight national champion Troy Kenning, three-time All-American and national champ Troy Szydel and four-time All-American and national champion Matt Petsinger and three- time All- American and national champ Andy Pickar and four- time All- American and national champ Jason Rhoten and has had 69 NWCA national All-Academic selections.
    In addition to his coaching responsibilities, Makovsky is an active member of the National Wrestling Coaches Association where he recently served as president and is an assistant professor in the MSU Human Performance Department.
    Makovsky, a Wahpeton, N.D., native is a 1989 graduate of Valley City state University where he served as head wrestling coach for four years before coming to MSU. Makovsky, who was a four-year wrestler and three-year football letterwinner at VCSU, led his alma mater to a 25-19-2 dual meet record in his tenure and coached two national champions and five national All-Academic selections.
    Makovsky was instrumental in MSU securing and hosting the 2004 NCAA Division II Wrestling National Championships and planning and designing the 4,000 square-foot Rummy Macias wrestling room.
    Makovsky and his wife, Dawn, make their home in Mankato and have two sons, Nicholas and Lucas, and a daughter, Mia.

    We should have a pretty good pick of whoever we want to hire.

    He may be a GREAT coach, but no chance! ISU fans would never accept a no name coach after Cael, and our recruiting would suffer unless we get a name that the recruits(andfans)will recognise and rally around!

    I like this idea. Hire "Handsome" Harley Race! We could become the premiere Rasslin' school in the country.

    Would Makovsky bring Dobber with him?

    Whoever Pollard wants coaching the team, he will get. Who knows, maybe he has someone lined up and gave Sanderson the hint to win it all or move on......I have a feeling Gable is on the way!

    Hire the Macho Man Randy Savage. The intensity when he and Brands meet up will be off the charts!!!

    We won't need the curtain in Hilton anymore. Just let Savage do the commercials!


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!
