    Ty Eustice Added to Navy Coaching Staff

    News regarding wrestling at the service academies continues to roll in this week. Yesterday, Army West Point announced the hiring of Taylor LaMont as an assistant coach. This morning, InterMat posted an interview with Army associate head coach Scott Green

    Not to be outdone by their chief rivals, on Tuesday, Navy added 2024 All-American Quinn Kinner to the Navy Wrestling Club. Today, Cary Kolat’s team announced that they've Ty Eustice to their staff as an assistant coach. 

    Eustice comes to Annapolis after spending the previous three seasons as the head assistant coach at Davidson College. While at Davidson, Eustice and Nate Carr Jr. helped to elevate the profile of the tiny DI school and brought in higher caliber recruits than had been signed in recent memory. The 2024 class contains three top-250 recruits after having none in the previous two cycles. 

    Before coming to Davidson, Eustice was an assistant at DII Minnesota State. While in Mankato, he was part of a program that finished in the top-ten twice at the NCAA Tournament. 

    Eustice also spent two seasons as the head coach at Iowa Lakes CC and jumped into the coaching realm as an assistant at Iowa’s Cornell Cornell. 

    Iowa is where Eustice spent his collegiate days - wrestling 149 lbs for the Hawkeyes. Eustice qualified for the NCAA tournament on four occasions and earned All-American honors as a junior (5th) and a senior (2nd). As a freshman, Eustice made the Big Ten finals. He would finish third in each of the next three seasons. 

    Eustice is the second new member of Kolat’s coaching staff for the 2024-25 season. Earlier this offseason, the legendary Barry Davis returned and was hired to assist the Midshipmen. Navy returns three wrestlers with NCAA experience and is coming off a sixth-place finish in the EIWA. In dual competition, Navy went 8-6 and spent a few weeks in the national rankings after posting early-season wins over Illinois and Pittsburgh. Navy also was able to ink four top-200 recruits from the Class of 2024.
