    The 2024 Offseason Coaching Carousel

    The 2024 college coaching carousel is in full swing even after two head coaching positions have been filled within the last five days. Once one job has been filled, it likely results in another vacancy, be it from an assistant slot or another head coaching opportunity. As of Thursday morning, there are still two head coaching vacancies (Columbia and Oklahoma State). Each has the potential to create ripples felt around the wrestling coaching…..and so the carousel continues to spin. And that doesn’t even include current openings at the assistant level. 

    The first set of coaches have already accepted new positions during this hiring cycle. Even though the Esposito/Hall moves were announced during the regular season, they are still relatively recent and will spend their first season on a new bench in 2024-25. 

    The second group is current openings that InterMat has been made aware of. If you don’t see one listed that needs to be please let me know earl@matscouts.com . 

    As with the transfer portal feature, this is a fluid situation that will be monitored and updated regularly throughout the spring and summer. There will be no timetable for updates - just as more movement occurs.
