Campus hires men's wrestling coach for new program

3/31/2011 —

Jeff Winkle has been hired as coach of the Penn State Beaver men’s wrestling team, which will begin its first season in the 2011 fall semester.

Winkle is a graduate of Hopewell High School where he was a member of the wrestling team. He has remained active in Hopewell’s wrestling program for 13 years. Winkle holds a bachelor’s degree in human resources from Geneva College and a master’s degree in strategic leadership from Mountain State University.

"I look forward to the challenges and opportunities provided with starting a new wrestling program," Winkle said. "Western Pennsylvania and the tri-state area have significant wrestling talent to draw from, and the new program should be a great fit within the Penn State Beaver Athletic Department."

Currently, Beaver has seven varsity sports: baseball, softball, volleyball, men’s soccer, women’s soccer, men’s basketball and women’s basketball.
