EVANSTON, Ill. - Ryan Bertin has been named assistant wrestling coach at Northwestern, head coach Tim Cysewski announced Tuesday. Bertin is a two-time NCAA champion at 157 lbs. and was a four-time NCAA All-American for the University of Michigan. He will assume his coaching responsibilities immediately.

"Ryan has everything you search for in a coach," Cysewski said. "He's an outstanding technician, leads by example and understands what it takes to be the very best."

Bertin is one of the most successful wrestlers in Wolverine history. He won the NCAA championship at 157 lbs. in 2003 and 2005. He was a four-time NCAA All-American and 2005 Big Ten Wrestler of the Year. He ranks fifth on Michigan's all-time wins list with a 142-21 career mark.

During his senior season in 2004-05 he posted a 31-1 record with a perfect 18-0 dual mark. He finished second at the Big Ten Championships and won the NCAA title.

Bertin is a product of St. Edward high school, one of the top high school programs in the nation and was a high school National Champion.

"Our wrestlers are very excited to learn from Ryan," Cysewski said. "They will be able to draw from his competitive experiences in many ways."

He was a three-time NWCA All-Academic and three-time Academic All-Big Ten selection.

Bertin, who resides in Chicago, previously served as coach of the Northwestern Wrestling Club and Kyle Bertin, his younger brother, is a freshman for the Wildcats.

The Wildcats, ranked top-10 in several preseason polls, begin their season Saturday, Nov. 4 at the Eastern Michigan Open.
