    Lou Rosselli Joins Pittsburgh Staff

    More big news on the college coaching front! Today’s edition comes courtesy of the University of Pittsburgh and Keith Gavin, who has hired Lou Rosselli as an assistant coach. 

    Rosselli gets back into the collegiate coaching game after sitting out the 2023-24 campaign. He was most recently the head coach of the Oklahoma Sooners, a position he held for seven seasons. During his time in Norman, Rosselli produced four All-Americans after sending 48 wrestlers to the NCAA Tournament. In 2021, Rosselli’s squad claimed the school’s first Big 12 championship in almost 20 years (2002). 

    Prior to his tenure as the Sooners head coach, Rosselli spent ten years on the Ohio State bench. He was a part of the Buckeyes 2015 national championship-winning team and an instrumental member of Ohio RTC freestyle staff. 

    Before Ohio State, Rosselli spent 11 years assisting at his alma mater, Edinboro and was a 1996 Olympian. 

    Rosselli and Gavin are no strangers - their paths have crossed professionally on two occasions. Gavin spent time with the Ohio RTC training in freestyle under Rosselli. He then was a member of Rosselli’s staff at Oklahoma for a year before accepting the head coaching position at Pittsburgh. 

    The 2024-25 Pittsburgh squad should be younger than in recent years; yet it could feature a lineup that contains six past national qualifiers.
