The first head coaching job of the year has opened up. Oregon State announced today that Jim Zalesky will no longer be head coach of the Beavers.

Based on this year's salary information from the university's human resources page Zalesky was due to be paid $155,004 for this school year.

Below is the complete press release from the Oregon State athletic department.

Corvallis — Oregon State University Vice President and Director of Athletics Scott Barnes announced Monday that there will be a change of leadership of the wrestling program at the conclusion of the season.

"I want to thank Coach Jim Zalesky for his dedication to Oregon State University and his commitment to the young men in our wrestling program," Beaver Vice President and Director of Athletics Scott Barnes said. "We wish him and his family the best in their future endeavors."

Zalesky started his head coaching career at OSU in 2006 after eight years leading the University of Iowa program.

Two Beaver wrestlers, Devan Turner (133) and Grant Willits (141), are guaranteed to represent OSU at the NCAA Championships at the March 19-21 tournament in Minneapolis. Turner won the Pac-12 title last week and Willits was runner up at his weight.

Oregon State University will embark on a national search to appoint a new head coach in the near future.
