Arcadia University has named David Stevens as the first head coach for men’s wrestling in school history. Stevens spent the past season at Delaware Valley and was a graduate assistant coach at Messiah from 2021-2023. He graduated from Messiah in 2021 and was an NCAA qualifier for the canceled 2020 championships before placing 7th the following year at the NWCA DIII tournament.

Arcadia will begin competition in the 2025-2026 season as part of the Middle Atlantic Conference. Executive Director of Athletics Brian Granata said of the hire, “We are very excited to welcome Coach Stevens into the Arcadia Athletics family and look forward to watching him grow our men’s wrestling program from the ground up. Stevens has a deep understanding of the landscape of wrestling in our geographical region and is well-versed in the MAC from his time as a student-athlete and coach within the conference. His passion for the sport and vision for developing a new program was evident from the first day we met him.”
