Now, it’s official. A familiar face has returned to Buffalo to lead the Bulls program.
1998 graduate John Stutzman, who was the all-time leader in victories at Buffalo upon his graduation, has been named the new head coach of the wrestling team, following the departure of Jim Beichner in March.
It will the second time on the staff of his alma mater, as Stutzman served as an assistant from 1998-2000 before working at Northern Illinois.
Stutzman became the head coach at Bloomsburg in 2005 and in his eight seasons, the Huskies won 97 dual meets and boasted three All-Americans and 33 NCAA qualifiers.
For his efforts, Stutzman has been named EWL Coach of the Year three times.
The Delaware native also has significant coaching experience in the international styles, having been a member of the USA Wrestling staff since 2009 and working with the New York Athletic Club.

This is great news, looking forward to some big accomplishments!
