Article: Hoosiers Add NCAA Champion Jason Tsirtsis to Coaching Staff

Recommended Posts

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – IU head coach Angel Escobedo has announced the addition of three time All-American and NCAA Champion Jason Tsirtsis as a volunteer assistant coach.

Tsirtsis, a native of Crown Point, Ind., where he won four state championships in high school, started his college career at Northwestern where in his redshirt freshman season he won the NCAA Championship at 149 lb. That year, in 2014, Tsirtsis also was the Big Ten Champion, Big Ten Freshman of the Year, Intermat Freshman of the Year and Midlands Champion.

Tsirtsis concluded his collegiate career in 2017-18 with Arizona State as an All-American with a seventh-place finish at NCAAs. He was named the Comeback Wrestler of the Year at the NCAA Championships by FloWrestling.

I'm very excited to add Jason Tsirtsis to our staff,” Escobedo said.  “Since day one, our focus has been to keep the best kids in state and I believe having an Indiana legend like Jason will help achieve this goal. He will work directly with our middle weights (149-165) and we are excited to have him join our program.”

“I am extremely excited to join the wrestling family down in Bloomington,” Tsirtsis said.  “Angel has done a great job at changing the culture within the program and I'm thrilled to help further the growth & development of our wrestlers. I can't wait to get down to Bloomington!”

Nice addition to Indiana, would not have been an option with the last head coach. Im wondering what this does to Jordan's responsibilities? Any way, Indiana High school elites wrestlers have to at least take a look at the Hoosiers now.
