    Who Should Central Michigan Hire?

    On March 11th, news broke that longtime Central Michigan head coach Tom Borrelli would step down from his post following the 2024 NCAA Championships. Borrelli spent 33 years as head coach of the Chippewas and coached one national champion, 45 All-Americans, and 93 MAC champions. CMU finished in the top ten at the NCAA Tournament on three occasions, topping out at fifth in 1998. 

    Now that the 2023-24 season is over, we can ask the question, who will replace Tom Borrelli? 

    The world out of Mount Pleasant is that heavy consideration will be given to candidates with a link to Borrelli and the program. 

    With that in mind, we’ve narrowed the list to some candidates that fit the bill (for the most part) and could be realistic hires. Saying CMU should hire Jordan Burroughs or David Taylor is fun, but not realistic. Also, we understand that CMU’s more prominent wrestling alum, Casey Cunningham, is not an option at this time. 

    So, here’s a group of potential candidates with a little bit about their background and why they may stand out from the others on the list.  

    Ben Bennett - Central Michigan Associate Head Coach

    While Coach Borrelli was a fixture on the CMU bench, his right-hand man Ben Bennett, is getting close to that status himself.
