Lock Haven wrestling hasn’t been a regular top 10 team since its 1990s heyday with NCAA two-time champion Cary Kolat, but that’s where new head coach Scott Moore envisions the program as it works to become both fully funded and competitive.
The school named Moore the head coach Monday, removing the interim label he’d held the past month. Moore won the job over finalists Jason Mester, a Central Michigan assistant, and John Hughes, a Lehigh assistant.
Moore had been an assistant with LHU since 2010. He replaces Robbie Waller, who was released this spring after a 12-32 record in four seasons. Moore also spent 2004-10 as an assistant at Virginia.
