Logan Meister has been promoted to head coach at his alma mater of Ferrum College following the departure of Ryan Riggs to Mount Union. Meister will be the third head coach in three years a Ferrum, though he is a familiar name at the school. He was the first ever NCAA qualifier for the Panthers in their first year of existence in 2014 and in 2016 became their first All-American. He spent the last two seasons as an assistant at Ferrum, returning to the school after spending time as a graduate assistant at McDaniel.
Ferrum started its wrestling program in 2013 with Meister on the roster as a freshman. Nate Yetzer coached the team from 2013-2020, and Ryan Riggs was the head coach for the 2020-2021 season. Meister is the third head coach in program history.
