Quincy Osborn has resigned as the head coach at Lakeland College after just one season on the bench. Osborn is returning to his hometown of Grand Rapids, Minnesota, and leaving college coaching. Lakeland sent Mitchell Fucile to the NCAA Championships at 165 lbs. this March, giving the Muskies their first qualifier since 2012.
Osborn, an NCAA Division I qualifier for Minnesota and NCAA Division III champion for Augsburg, had previously coached at Augsburg, Ohio University, and the University at Buffalo.
Osborn resigns as Lakeland head wrestling coach
Quincy Osborn has resigned as Lakeland College head wrestling coach, Lakeland Interim Director of Athletics April Arvan announced today.
Osborn is leaving the program after one year as head coach. He led the Muskies to a third-place finish in the Northern Wrestling Association this season and also coached sophomore Mitchell Fucile (Chilton, Wis.), who became Lakeland’s first qualifier for the NCAA Division III national wrestling championships in four years. Fucile finished 1-2 at the championships and came up one win shy of attaining All-American status.
“We are thankful for Quincy’s work with the wrestling program at Lakeland and wish him well in the future,” said Arvan. “We are committed to finding the best possible replacement to lead the wrestling program to future success.”
Osborn’s resignation is effective June 30. A search for his successor will begin immediately.
