BUFFALO, NY – New head wrestling coach John Stutzman announced his coaching staff Monday morning, with the hiring of Quincy Osborn and Bryce Hasseman. Both assistants come to Buffalo with success as both wrestlers and coaches, and each of them has experienced life in the competitive Mid-American Conference.

“We want to be a blue collar team, we’re going to get our guys in great shape and create a style of wrestling that will be fun to watch,” Stutzman said about his hopes for the team under the new coaching staff.

Osborn recently finished his fourth year as an assistant with MAC rival Ohio. Over that time with the Bobcats, he helped to recruit two top 25 ranked recruiting classes and coached up Germane Lindsey to All American status in the 2010 season. His first coaching job came at Augsburg College, where he worked for two years after wrestling at the school for two seasons.

After originally started his collegiate wrestling career at Minnesota before going to Augsburg, Osborn qualified twice for the NCAA Division I tournament while with the Gophers. Wrestling for Augsburg in 2007, he was the Division III National Champion at 141 pounds, also leading the Auggies to the national team title. In that season, he had the most team points, takedowns, and falls.

  1. Vickal if a giant step backwards means back to the good old days where UB was known for their wins on the mat and not their arrest in the news, I hope your right. I for one have a lot of hope for the new and improved coaching staff at UB.
