KENOSHA, Wis. -- Director of athletics Michelle Manning announced the hiring of Alberto Quiros as Carthage College's next men's, and first-ever women's wrestling coach Thursday morning.
"I am thrilled to have Alberto join the Carthage family as our new men's and women's wrestling coach," said Manning. "His passion to mentor student-athletes in competition and in life, combined with his past coaching and CCIW experience, made him a great choice to lead the next chapter in our wrestling programs."
Quiros joins the Carthage staff after spending two years at MacMurray College in Jacksonville, Ill. as the head coach of the men's and women's wrestling teams. Hired just one year after each program was added at the college, he was given the task of building two teams from the ground up. Before joining MacMurray's staff, Quiors spent two seasons as an assistant coach at Augustana College, where he had been a volunteer coach for three years prior after graduating from the school in 2012.
"I am excited about the future of Carthage wrestling and grateful to join the Carthage family," said Quiros.
During his senior year at Augustana, Quiros was crowned the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin (CCIW) champion and outstanding wrestler of the year. He was a runner-up at the 2012 NCAA Great Lakes Regional, and qualified for the National Championship. He graduated from Augustana with a bachelor of arts in psychology and history.
