"After a comprehensive evaluation of the program, we concluded it was time to move in a new direction. We are committed to winning Mid-American Conference championships at the University at Buffalo and believe a leadership change in wrestling is necessary at this time. Coach Beichner served as a fine role model to our student-athletes and we are grateful for all he has done in the continued development of our wrestling program."
