VESTAL, N.Y. - Binghamton wrestling announced that Lou DePrez will be added to the coaching staff effective immediately. DePrez will be an assistant coach for the Bearcats program for the rest of the 2022-23 season. He suffered a season ending injury in the finals at the Southern Scuffle on January 2. DePrez ends his sixth season with a 10-2 overall record and he is currently ranked No. 9 by InterMat at 197 pounds. DePrez is a two-time All-American and three-time EIWA champion, and he is also the all-time wins leader for Binghamton with 134 career victories.
"Lou knows this program and the team members better than anyone in the country," said head coach Kyle Borshoff. "I'm looking forward to adding his expertise to the staff. After his injury at the Southern Scuffle, this is the best move we could make at this time, and I look forward to working with Lou in a new capacity."
DePrez joins a coaching staff that also includes assistant coaches Fred Garcia and Phillip Barreiro.
