    The Bloomsburg Head Coaching Situation: Part Two (Candidates)

    Yesterday, we wrote about the vacant Bloomsburg head coaching position and tried to provide some clarity regarding the future of the program and the intentions of its administrators. 

    Now, we’re moving on to potential candidates for the vacancy. As always, with these exercises, we’ve tried to stick with candidates who make some sense for the opening. 

    Before getting to the candidates, we’ll look at the team itself. Bloomsburg is coming off back-to-back 13th-place finishes in the MAC and has gone a combined 8-28 in dual competition over the last two years. Four of the wrestlers who competed at the 2024 MAC Championships will return in 2024-25 and a couple of others are in the transfer portal. Bloomsburg’s most recent NCAA representative was Josh Mason who made the tournament in 2022 and 2023. 

    We’ve broken down the categories of candidates to veterans, new coaching blood, and will close with a special one-of-a-kind category. 


    John Hughes

    This name would make sense to those who follow the Bloomsburg program as John Hughes’ twin brother, Russ, has been on the Bloomsburg staff since 2016. Could the brother join forces to lead the Huskies going forward? Since this would be John’s first college head coaching gig, having his twin brother so familiar with the landscape of the school and athletic department would be a huge bonus.
