The Program: NC State
Sep 7, 2016With a new coach comes a new philosophy. Two time CAA coach of the year, Pat Popolizio, recently took over as the new head coach of NC State. The highly-regarded former coach of Binghamton University has his sights set high for his Wolfpack, and he is determined to transform the NC State wrestling culture into one that harvests success. Popolizio's "no excuses for anybody" mentality hasn't tested his team as much as it has brought them together, and with the help of outstanding assistants, like Jamill Kelly and Frank Beasley, the Wolfpack are sure to be in the hunt for an ACC Title in the near future. That in mind, Popolizio and his crew want much more.
