Is Bloom signaling that its heading the way of Millersville? I talked with several assistant coaches about this position and they all laughed at me. All had talked with Bloom before Jason Mester was hired and had nothing good to say about the athletic department. In the heart of wrestling the Bloom administration is either trying to get rid of wrestling or just incompetent. John Stutzman was a lucky strike for them. A program builder that got out of there as soon as he made progress.
I’m guessing that no serious candidates applied. Is this a dead cat bounce? Call the Bloomsburg Athletic Department and give them some crap for incompetence in the heart of wrestling country.
