    Spanier: Decision on coach nearing

    By Stephen Hennessey Email
    Collegian Staff Writer

    The search for a new wrestling head coach is ongoing and a decision will likely be made within the next week, Penn State President Graham Spanier said Thursday in a telephone interview.

    Spanier said he is involved with the search, but could not elaborate on any details until a coach was announced.

    "We are right in the middle of it," he said. "[Athletic Director] Tim Curley and a group of folks have been interviewing individuals and it's our goal to have this wrapped up within a week, I would say. But we aren't there yet."

    Calls to Curley's office were not returned earlier this week, but sports information director Jeff Nelson called The Daily Collegian on behalf of Curley.

    "All we can say at this point is the search is ongoing, and there will be no further comment until a coach is named," Nelson said Tuesday evening when reached by phone.

    Ken Chertow, a former Nittany Lion wrestler and assistant coach, said he could not comment on anything about the search, but did express interest in the coaching position.

    "It'd be a great honor," Chertow said at his training facility Thursday.

    Since the resignation of coach Troy Sunderland on April 4, the Lions have practiced daily with the current assistant coaches, assistant coach Aaron Anspach said last week. A group of wrestlers, including freshmen Quentin Wright and Tim Darling, competed at the FILA Junior Freestyle Championships in Las Vegas.

    These wrestlers might have a new head coach soon, however, as Spanier suspects the committee will make a decision by the end of next week, if not "within a few days."

    "With athletic searches, because there are so many athletes and others involved, we like to move it along as quickly as possible," Spanier said.

    I agree with that, I would also add that there are not many more programs that could offer that kind of money.

    This made me think of another possible reason for him to leave, ISU fans may not like this but in my opinion if you look at the ISU job it could be compared the Jets, Mets, White Sox, or Clippers coaching positions, even when these teams win titles and are better than the Giants, Yankees, Cubs and Lakers they still aren't THE team in that city or state. I think that ISU wrestling is in the same boat. NO matter how good they get they'll still be playing second fiddle to Iowa. If he takes the PSU job he'll immediately be at THE premier wrestling program in Pennsylvania.

    I can definitely see the allure to taking a job where you are virtually guaranteed to not play second fiddle to anyone.

    We should lo-jack him and track his every move.

    haha, I told someone I know up in State College to hide out at the airport and jump in to force him to spill the beans...

    which reminds me of a funny story a few years ago when NC State was looking for a new bball coach and reporters were stalking the airport looking at who was flying in... one of the major NCSU boosters had a private plane and they found the ID number for the plane and were tracking it on this website to see where it was going. HI-larious.

    This question is just speculation. Do you think Cael and Pollard(AD) had some sort of falling out?

    I don't know, but I think the simplest and best explanation for his interest in the job is the presumed large increase in salary and benefits. Cael has a family.

    This is great for college wrestling...about time a University made a huge block buster offer for a coach (as far a wrestling $$ goes)!

    Nothing against Kenny boy, but I'm glad he won't be the coach, and now the ISU deal gets real interesting....depending on who/how many follow Cael, PSU could have a great shot at the title...pronto!
