Former D-1 Wrestler/Coach Looking for a Position In Illinois

Posted about 5 years ago by cmu141

My name is Eric Kruger and I'm looking to break back into the coaching ranks in Illinois.

I have wrestled for 17 years of my life. I competed for Carl Sandburg High School where I was a 2-time state qualifier, and my senior year I took 4th at State. Following my scholastic career, I went to Central Michigan University on an athletic scholarship. I competed for the Chippewas for five years and was a starter for three and a half of those years. During my time in the line up, we were consistently ranked in the top 20 in the country: as was I. I was a Mid American Conference Champion and a national qualifier during my time as a Chippewa. After my time as an athlete, I served as the Second Assistant Coach and Director of Operations in the 09-10 and 11-12 seasons, respectively. I was responsible for recruiting, fundraising, trip planning, assisting in practice, assisting in camp direction, as well as other responsibilities.

If you would like to get in touch with my, you can email me at or give me a call at 708-738-7855.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
