Kiley elevated to head assistant coach at Northern Colorado

GREELEY, Colo. -- Northern Colorado head wrestling Coach Troy Nickerson elevated Garett Kiley to the position of head assistant wrestling coach after his strong first two seasons working with Northern Colorado. He has made an impact in three key components of coaching: training, recruiting and academics. Over the past two years, Kiley's helped send eight wrestlers to the NCAA Championships, sign a top five ranked recruiting class and have five NWCA Scholar All-Americans.

"Coach Kiley has grown to become an integral part of our wrestling program and his abilities have proven to be superior," Nickerson said. "He is committed to being with us for the long haul and is very deserving of the title change. I look forward to him continuing to push me and the program to new heights."

In his first season at UNC, Kiley coached up three Bears to the NCAA Championships in Rico Montoya, Chris Sandoval and Jacob Seely. He assisted in the recruiting efforts of a top five ranked recruiting class that included Andrew "Boo" Alirez and Mosha Schwartz who would go on a qualify for the NCAA's their freshman season. Two Bears earned NWCA Scholar All-America status in Montoya and Seeley. Montana was also the Big 12 Wrestling Scholar-Athlete of the Year and a CoSIDA Academic All-American.

Kiley helped raise the bar for the program in 2019-20 as UNC qualified five wrestlers to compete in the NCAA Championships before the COVID-19 pandemic canceled it. Three of the five wrestlers who qualified earned NWCA All-America honorable mention honors in Mosha Schwartz, Andrew Alirez and Dalton Robertson. He played a key role in the transformation of Robertson from wrestling at 174 lbs when Kiley arrived at UNC to qualifying at heavyweight two seasons later.

That trio automatically qualified for the NCAA Championships and was a big part of the Bear best-ever finish at the Southern Scuffle. Three Bears earned NWCA Scholar All-America status in 2019-20 in Jacob Seely, Alan Clothier and Jace Koelzer.

This is very good news for gambling fans. In fact, online casinos seem to me much safer in this regard, because you can sit at home, drink delicious coffee without sugar, wrap yourself in a blanket and just enjoy playing slots or card games, who prefers which more. Of course, I'm exaggerating and I'm not saying that online casinos are better than offline casinos, but for example, I'm much more comfortable playing online, sitting at home, than going to a regular casino. However, there are also some problems with online casinos that are related to the safety of the casino and, in general, to the conditions of playing in the casino. That is why I advise you to read reviews of this or that online casino that you want to play. On this page you can read information about the best online casinos in Canada, see the range of slots that casinos offer, choose deposit options for yourself. Also, there all online casinos in this review are ranked by estimates, that is, you can immediately look at the most popular online casinos and try to play in it. You can also read on this page information about bonuses at various online casinos and what is most interesting I advise you to pay attention to neteller casino canada. This is an online casino that offers its customers an electronic wallet as a payment method. This method has completely revolutionized the online casino funds transfer and offers its customers a completely free registration and Mastercard credit card receipt. It seems to me that this is very, very convenient, especially safe for novice players. What do you think about this?
