Jeremy Johnson joins Tech wrestling staff

Two-time All-American comes aboard as volunteer assistant
BLACKSBURG – Two-time heavyweight All-American Jeremy Johnson has joined the Virginia Tech wrestling staff as the volunteer assistant coach, as announced Monday by head coach Kevin Dresser. He joins the staff after wrapping up a stellar career at Ohio University, one which saw him tally 143 victories.
“We are very excited to announce that Jeremy Johnson is joining our staff,” Dresser said. “Eric Morrill did a great job for us, but he has decided to compete again within our Regional Training Center so the timing of Jeremy finishing up at Ohio University and joining us now is perfect. Jeremy lived in Blacksburg this summer so we know exactly what we are getting. He has already made an impact with our big guys!”
Johnson posted 41 wins as a senior last year en route to earning All-America honors for the second time. He was a four-time NCAA qualifier and captured two Mid-American Conference titles in three years. The Broadview Heights, Ohio, native set the school record for career victories and twice placed seventh at the NCAA Tournament (2012, 2014).
Johnson graduated from Ohio with a degree in mild-moderate education this month after finishing an internship. He was a three-time NWCA All-Academic team selection for his work in the classroom.
