    Re: Murphy and Andy - Kevin Jackson new head wrestling coach

    Have Douglas in the mix and Jackson will do just fine. I would like to see to a coach who works with the lightweights too.

    Re: Murphy and Andy - Kevin Jackson new head wrestling coach

    I just don't like this hire, IMO he's just not proven enough, but I guess you play the hand you were dealt and didn't seem like we had that many top coaches interested in our program. Before someone rips my head off, I'm just stating my opinion, I think there was better options out there, guess it's ultimately up to the wrestlers if they like the choice

    Register confirms it:

    Too bad they spend half the article talking about who might have turned us down. As usual, spectacular job by the Rag.

    Re: Murphy and Andy - Kevin Jackson new head wrestling coach

    Everyone's going to have on opinion as to whether they think this is a good hire. As it is, he is the coach and he needs our support, no matter your personal opinion.

    I think it's a solid hire, especially if Bobby Douglas comes back to help out for a year or two, and if KJ brings in some good assistants. Didn't the most of the current wrestlers say Jackson was their preference? That could potentially help keep some here who might have considered transferring with another coach.

    I'm just glad we finally have a coach. Though I suppose this means I actually have to pretend I'm doing real work now instead of constantly checking the sites.

    Make no mistake, he was not our first choice. JP can claim that he was and he can claim that he's the only one we "offered" but that's bending the truth considerably.

    That doesn't mean he's not a good candidate for the job. I'm excited for the KJ era.

    Re: Murphy and Andy - Kevin Jackson new head wrestling coach

    I'm not saying he won't perform and take us to the top, I'm just not sold yet, like I said obviously Pollard had doubt in him and he's not proven yet. But i'd be the first one to be glad to be proven wrong and he goes out and leads our team to a title. Welcome KJ

    Do you personally know what JP was thinking? No, so stop doing the speculation as who was the first choice.

    A 4x All American and Olympic Gold Medalist who is considered to be one of the greatest freestylers of all time. This is without a doubt a good hire and could be a great hire once his staff is filled out.
