CHAPEL HILL --- Coleman Scott, a four-time All-America performer at Oklahoma State and the 2008 NCAA champion at 133 pounds, has been named an assistant coach with the North Carolina wrestling program, head coach C.D. Mock announced Friday. Scott, who has also excelled at the international level as a four-time member of the United States National Team and a 2012 Olympic bronze medalist in freestyle at 60 kg, will be involved in all aspects of training and skill instruction for the Tar Heels.
"We are very excited to have Coleman Scott join our Tar Heel family," Mock said. "Coming from one of the most successful wrestling programs in the history of the sport, his knowledge and experience as a competitor and a coach will add immeasurably to the existing staff and team."
Scott will work directly with the light and light/middle weights on technique and training for Carolina after wrapping up competition for the summer in July.
Prior to starring at Oklahoma State, Scott was a three-time Pennsylvania state champion at Waynesburg Central High School. Scott and his wife Jessica have two children: daughter Leighton Ann and son Stetson Lewis.
