Peter Jacobson to coach Hunter


Peter Jacobson has been named Head Wrestling Coach at Assistant Athletic Director at Hunter College. He comes to the Hawks after 21 seasons coaching Edgemont High School in nearby Westchester County. He replaces Nicholas Coco, who had led the team since 2021. (Update 10/4: Coach Coco will remain with the team and coach alongside Jacobson.) At Edgemont, Jacobson coached 15 New York state placewinners, three state champions, and eight Section I Wrestlers of the Year.

“He brings a wealth of wrestling and leadership knowledge, along with a ‘can-do attitude. As a former NYC firefighter, he demonstrates teamwork, tenacity, safety, and facing the unknown with confidence. He also brings two decades of high school coaching experience, with local, regional, and national connections in the wrestling industry, which will serve him and the athletic department well.”
– Terry Wansart, Hunter College Director of Athletics
