Hutcheson's connection to DWU extends back to his days as a student-athlete at the South Dakota school, where he wrestled for the Tigers at 157 and 165 pounds from 2009-2014.

"We would like to thank Coach Hutcheson for his dedication and commitment to the program over the last three seasons and wish him nothing but the best going forward," Hart said.

During Hutcheson's tenure as head coach, DWU has upgraded its wrestling facilities. In 2016 the DWU/Avera Sports Complex was completed. Home to facilities for wrestling practice and competition, the sports complex features a large wrestling room for training as well as an additional 85,000 square-foot facility for hosting wrestling dual meets and open tournaments.

A search for a new head wrestling coach will begin immediately.

Dakota Wesleyan is a four-year, private school located in Mitchell, S.D. It has a total enrollment of approximately 800 students. The Tiger wrestling program competes in the NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics).
