Less than a week after Cary Kolat left Campbell for the vacant head coaching position at the Naval Academy, the Camel athletic department has announced his successor. It will be a familiar name, Scott Sentes, who currently serves as Campbell’s Associate Head Coach. Sentes just completed his fourth year at Campbell and was promoted to his current position at the conclusion of last season. The team has captured SoCon Championships in three of his four years with the program. Prior to his arrival at Campbell, Sentes spent three years on the staff at Cal Poly. Scott’s college days were spent at Central Michigan where he qualified for the NCAA Championships on four occasions and earned All-American honors twice.
Barring an unforeseen restoration of eligibility for the seniors in 2020, Sentes inherits a squad that will return four wrestlers with prior NCAA experience. The school has produced six national qualifiers in each of the last two seasons. Campbell also has a talented recruiting class that has either verballed or signed. Sentes’ elevation to head coach may allow the Camel to retain a large portion of that group.
With the announcement of Sentes heading the Campbell program, only Oregon State is without a head coach at the DI level.
