Former Indiana high school champion and University of Minnesota All-American Leroy Vega has been named wrestling coach at Calumet College.
It's the first college head coaching job for the 30-year-old Vega, who was an assistant at Minnesota for two years and then ran his own wrestling club in his hometown of Portage, Ind.
Vega was an undefeated state high school champion at 103 pounds in 1996 and at 112 pounds in 1997, compiling a combined 96-0 record over those two seasons. He was a captain on two NCAA champion teams at Minnesota.
Calumet is an NAIA Division II school of about 1,200 students.
