Yetzer joins Virginia Tech coaching staff



Former All-American will be volunteer assistant

BLACKSBURG - Virginia Tech head wrestling coach Kevin Dresser announced Thursday that Nathan Yetzer will serve as a volunteer assistant coach for the Hokies' program. Yetzer follows new Tech associate head coach Tony Robie to Blacksburg from New York, where he was an assistant coach at Binghamton last year.

Yetzer is a 2005 graduate of Edinboro University, where he served as captain for the nationally ranked Fighting Scots. A three-time NCAA qualifier and two-time team MVP, Yetzer was an All-American as a junior, placing eighth at 174 pounds after winning three matches at the national championship.

"We're very excited to have Nate join the staff," Robie said. "He's had success at every level he's wrestled at and he knows what it takes for us to take Virginia Tech wrestling to the next level."

As a senior, he went 36-7 at 165 pounds, including a 14-1 dual match record. Yetzer also successfully defended his titles at the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) and Eastern Wrestling League (EWL) championships. He was named the PSAC Outstanding Wrestler.

Yetzer was honored with the program's 4-D Award (Dedication, Desire, Determination, Discipline) and also was a recipient of an athletic and memorial scholarship at Edinboro. For his collegiate career, Yetzer was 103-33 overall.

In high school, Yetzer was an Ohio state champion and senior national runner-up for Madison High. He holds school records for career wins, takedowns, technical falls and wins in a season.

Yetzer received his bachelor's degree in business administration from Edinboro in May, 2005.

He has worked four years at the Bruce Baumgartner World-Class Wrestling Camps in Edinboro and has also served as a coach for the Ohio Junior National Team.
