C.C. Fisher named assistant coach at UNC Greensboro



GREENSBORO, N.C. - UNC Greensboro wrestling coach Jason Loukides announced Tuesday the appointment of C.C. Fisher to the position of assistant coach.

Fisher will relocate from Palo Alto, CA, where he has served as Head Coach of the Pleasanton Amateur Wrestling Club and the Advanced Training Wrestling Club, which was housed on the Stanford University campus.

"I am extremely pleased to welcome CC to our UNCG family," said Loukides, who was promoted to the head coaching position back on June 28. "C.C. has the dedication, desire, and expertise needed to keep this program moving forward. I believe he will have a great impact on this team."

Fisher is no stranger to the state of North Carolina. He is a native of Durham, NC, having coached at Duke and wrestled at North Carolina. He graduated from Chapel Hill in 1998 with a degree in history. During his time with the Tar Heels, the team won three ACC championships. A two-year captain and four-year starter, he qualified for the NCAA Tournament twice, earning a bid in 1997 and 1998. He earned All-ACC honors both of those years. He was an ACC individual champion at 126 lbs. in 1998 and selected the ACC Tournament's Most Outstanding Wrestler. A year earlier, he was the ACC runner-up at 126.

Fisher was the 1994 North Carolina State High School Champion at 125 lbs and was named Most Outstanding Wrestler of the Tournament. At Northern Durham and Riverside High Schools, Fisher compiled a mark of 134-22 over his career. He has also wrestled internationally for several years, spending four years at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, CO. At one time, he and Loukides were training there at the same time, although Loukides was in the Greco program, while Fisher was in the Freestyle program.

Fisher assumes his duties at UNCG on Sept. 1. The Spartans open the 2006-07 season Dec. 1 in Las Vegas at the Cliff Keen Collegiate Invitational.
