It’s been tweeted, rumored, confirmed and discussed, but what does the hiring of Mike Zadick and Derek St. John mean for Virginia Tech wrestling and the Southeast Regional Training Center?
Find out on Episode 19 of Inside Virginia Tech Wrestling as host Jason Bryant talks with head coach Kevin Dresser, St. John and Zadick about their roles around the program.
Before we talk with St. John and Zadick, Coach Dresser breaks down some of the news from the summer, mostly from the NWCA Convention held in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., in early August. Among the topics were athlete retention, scheduling, moving wrestling to one semester and of course, the National Duals.
We then get to St. John, a four-time All-American and an NCAA champion at Iowa who recently finished up coaching one season at North Dakota State University. Zadick, a 2008 Olympian and 2006 World silver medalist in freestyle, has been coaching back in his native Montana recently and got the itch again to coach at the college level.
