DAVIDSON, N.C. -- Davidson head coach Andy Lausier announced the addition of Chad Walsh as the second full-time assistant to the wrestling staff, announced Friday.
Walsh, a 2017 graduate of Rider University, was a two-time All-American for the Broncs, earning qualification to the NCAA Championship all four seasons. The Cherry Hill, N.J., native is one of the most decorated grapplers in Rider history, earning a pair of EWL Wrestler of the Year honors and the Rider Male Athlete of the Year. Walsh was a three-time EWL Champion.
"We are so excited about the addition of a second full-time assistant coach to our staff, and even more excited to have Chad Walsh fill those shoes,' said Lausier. "Chad's wrestling resume is so impressive and I always enjoyed watching his fearless and aggressive style of wrestling. Most importantly I believe he is a perfect fit for our team, our culture and our vision."
He earned his bachelor of arts degree in sociology and a masters in athletic leadership in 2018 while garnering Academic All-America recognition for four years.
Following his stellar career on the mat, Walsh joined the Broncs coaching staff last season as an assistant. In under a year on the coaching side of things, Walsh helped guide three wrestlers to NCAA Tournament berths at 165, 174 and 197 pounds. The Broncs also placed second at the EWL Tournament during his lone season on staff.
