    How Did Matt Valenti's Return Come to Be?

    Earlier this month, the University of Pennsylvania announced that two-time NCAA champion Matt Valenti would be leaving his role within the athletic department to return to the wrestling team as an associate head coach. It's part of a plan for Valenti to transition into the head coaching position for the 2025-26 season, while current head coach Roger Reina steps back. 

    Valenti sat down with Austin Sommer to discuss how this situation came about - why he initially left coaching and why he wanted to return. The two also discuss the transition to the head coaching position and how that dynamic works with the current staff members. Valenti also talks about Penn qualifying for the 2025 NCAA Tournament directly through the Ivy League, rather than the EIWA. They close by hitting on the Penn RTC and their performance at last weekend's Olympic Trials.
