Adam Healey has been named the head wrestling coach at King’s College, the school announced on Wednesday. Healey has been an assistant at King’s for the past three seasons and will become the second ever head coach following the retirement of Ned McGinley who helmed the team since its inception in 1968. Healey is a Wilkes-Barre native who attended Wyoming Seminary and Bucknell University before getting his MBA from Wilkes. He takes over a team that is set to return 17 wrestlers including 2017 regional placewinner Eddie Merrill and 2016 regional placewinner Ralph Bernardo.
The season-opening Monarch Invitational hosted by King’s has been renamed the Ned McGinley Invitational to honor the outgoing coach who began the program and amassed 455 wins, 45 NCAA qualifiers and 18 All-Americans. Click the link below for the King’s release.
