  1. In todays day and age, you just can’t hit kids anymore like you used to. Coach should know better and administrators should have zero tolerance in physical abusive behavior towards students.

  3. Congrats Tyler Hannah from your fans at UWEC!

    We are not fans of the UWP Coach. He’s absolutely brutal to officials and his own athletes when things don’t go their way.

  4. How about all of you that actually know nothing about Coach Kittleson as a person say one thing bad about him to someone’s face instead of talking over a phone. You no life’s are pathetic

  5. The athletes coached under Kittleson thrive under him. Tyler is the perfect example. Shows when you look at UWP’s past results to now ‍♂️

  6. I think Coach DeRoehn had better seasons than Kittelson. UWP is currently .500 and Coach DeRoehn had a finalist multiple AAs. Not sure the highest place in NCAA history but Kittelson isn’t producing their best years. head butt your athletes, you get fired.

  7. At the NCAA last year he should have been kicked out the way he attacked the officials at Hannah’s blood round match. He’s got a long history of being a complete idiot to how he treats officials.

  8. This article is about this young man who is a great ambassador for this sport. Kindly take your misinformed, biased comments somewhere else and give this wrestler what’s due to him.

  9. Sad that y’all would try to use the actions of Hannah’s coach as a way to detract from his wrestling. Does not reflect well on you at all smh

  10. Sad that the coach head butts his student-athletes, takes all his assistants down with him , and leaves his entire roster hanging. Seems like a great guy.

    Great performance by Hannah. Hope he keeps it up.

  11. I feel bad for the athletes, but the coaching staff deserves what they got. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
