On Tuesday, Mustang Director of Athletics Don Oberhelman announced that Jon Siordas would replace Brendan Buckley as head coach of Cal Poly’s wrestling program.
Buckley resigned last month after being head coach at Cal Poly for the past five seasons. He then accepted a position as executive director of Beat the Streets Wrestling, New York City.
Sioredas has coached in the NCAA for over eight years and has coached three All-Americans.
He was also inducted into the Tennessee at Chattanooga Athletics Hall of Fame, recently.
“I am honored and excited to lead a program with such rich tradition,” Sioredas said. “I would especially like to thank Don Oberhelman and the Cal Poly Athletic Department for giving me this opportunity. Our expectations at Cal Poly are simple: to graduate with a meaningful degree, have a reputation of excellence on campus and in the community, and to produce NCAA All-Americans and national champions.”
The Cal Poly Mustangs compete in the Pac-12.
