Ryan Carr, a 2000 graduate of the school, will be the next head coach at Plymouth State, the Plymouth, New Hampshire, school announced yesterday. He takes over for Eric Bergeron who coached the team since 2018. He was a three-time all-New England wrestler and a three-time NWCA Scholar All-American. He briefly coached the Panthers at the end of his college career and has coached at the high school level for over a decade.
PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Three-time All-New England wrestler Ryan Carr ’00 will be the next head wrestling coach at Plymouth State University, Director of Athletics Kim Bownes announced on Thursday.
Carr, a three-time All-New England honoree, replaces former coach Eric Bergeron, who resigned from the position at the conclusion of the season.
Carr competed at the 190-pound and heavyweight divisions for the Panthers from 1995-96 through 1998-99. He was crowned New England Champion at heavyweight during his senior season, while also earning All-New England honors as a sophomore and junior after placing second in the 190-pound division.
“Having Ryan join the athletic department is extremely exciting,” said Bownes. “Ryan is an alumnus who knows what Plymouth State is about. He was one of our most successful wrestlers during his time here and I am confident he is just what our program and student-athletes need and deserve.”
