Rich Fleming, the coach at Baldwin-Wallace for the past 23 seasons, will not be the head coach for the 2011-2012 season. The school quietly posted an opening for the job a few weeks ago while also upping it to a full time position. No announcement was ever made on the school website announcing the search or the fact the Fleming will not return, other than the listing on the B-W employment site. Fleming was not granted an interview, so the Yellow Jackets will have a new head coach next season. Phone interviews were to have been conducted last week with several candidates, followed, one would assume, by on campus interviews in the coming weeks. As soon as any more information is available, you will find it here on d3wrestle.com.
In 23 seasons at the helm of the B-W program, Fleming coached 34 NCAA qualifiers and 10 All-Americans, including 1989 NCAA champion Kevin Higgins.
