MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. -- Former Central Michigan All-American wrestler Joe Roth has returned to the Chippewa mats.
Roth, who earned All-America honors in 2014 with a seventh-place finish at the NCAA Championships at 133 pounds, has joined coach Tom Borrelli's staff as a volunteer assistant coach.
"Joe will work with our lighter weights and should be a major boost to them as a workout partner and technician," Borrelli said. "He will also add value to our staff and help each athlete with mental preparation and motivation. Being an alum and former All-American gives him immediate credibility with our current student-athletes."
Roth finished a standout career at CMU in 2014, joining the Chippewas' 100-Win Club with a 100-33 career mark. He was a Mid-American Conference champion in 2012 and earned the tournament's Outstanding Wrestler Award.
He placed second in the MAC Tournament in 2014 and closed his career as a two-time NCAA Championships qualifier. He earned Academic All-America honors in 2014.
Roth earned both his Bachelor of Science and Master's degrees from CMU. His bachelor's is in health fitness preventative and rehabilitation, and his Master's is in exercise science.
