PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Todd Beckerman announced he is stepping away as the Marvin Wilenzik '56 Head Coaching Chair for Brown Wrestling and transitioning to a new role.
"I want to thank Coach Beckerman for his time leading our wrestling program," Chancellor Samuel M. Mencoff '78 Vice President for Athletics and Recreation M. Grace Calhoun '92, Ph.D. said. "We appreciate his dedication to Brown Wrestling and look forward to seeing him in a new role. He established a strong foundation for the program, and we appreciate his commitment to so many student-athletes through the years. The success on and off the mat was evident. We will immediately begin a national search to identify our next wrestling coach."
"I want to thank Grace Calhoun for this wonderful opportunity to pursue this next chapter in my career," said Beckerman. "I'm honored and forever grateful for the opportunity to have coached at this prestigious institution for the last nine years, and am proud of what we accomplished together, building a strong, and fully endowed program that is positioned for future success under a new head coach. Most importantly, I'm excited to be able to spend more time with my wife and daughters in ways I couldn't before."
In his nine seasons at Brown, Beckerman featured several EIWA placers and 12 NCAA qualifiers, including Ophir Bernstein '15, the program's first All-American in 16 years (2014-15) and fourth ever.
