Williams has a new wrestling coach.

Williams College Athletic Director Harry Sheehy announced today that Rafael Vega has been named to succeed Mike Whalen as the head coach of wrestling at Williams.

Whalen was named the Ephs’ head coach of football in February and stepped down as the head coach of wrestling at the end of the 2003-04 season. Williams finished third in New England last season.

Vega previously served as Whalen’s assistant the past three years.

I am not sure how Williams managed to get its news release on the topic included almost word for word as an article in the Bennington Banner.

I’ll be interested to here what the thoughts are of EphBlogs wrestlers on this appointment.
