Coleman Scott To Join UNC Program

Former Oklahoma State All-American wrestler Coleman Scott, a 2008 NCAA champion wrestler, U.S.A. veteran amateur wrestler and 2012 Olympic bronze medalist at 60 kg,, has been named assistant coach for the University of North Carolina wrestling program, according to UNC head coach C.D. Mock.

Scott had been working as a volunteer coach for Oklahoma State and wrestling in the USA Wrestling program since his graduation. The announcement of Scott's hiring came on Friday afternoon.

"We are very excited to have Coleman Scott join our Tar Heel family," Mock said. "Coming from one of the most successful wrestling programs in the history of the sport, his knowledge and experience as a competitor and a coach will add immeasurably to the existing staff and team."

Scott will work directly with the light and light/middle weights on technique and training for Carolina after wrapping up competition for the summer in July.

Prior to starring at Oklahoma State, Scott was a three-time Pennsylvania state champion at Waynesburg Central High School. Scott and his wife Jessica have two children: daughter Leighton Ann and son Stetson Lewis.
