Former All-American wrestler Austin Marsden enters his second season as assistant coach for the University at Buffalo wrestling program.
In his first season, coaching the upper weights, Marsden coached heavyweight Jake Gunning to the NCAA Championships.
Marsden was a four-year letterwinner at national powerhouse Oklahoma State where he compiled a career-record of 108-22 as a heavyweight. He went 37-8 in duals meets over his career and was a three-time Big 12 champion. Marsden was an NCAA qualifier all four seasons and was an All-American in 2014 and 2016.
Following graduation, Marsden spent the 2016-17 season as a volunteer assistant at Army West Point. He helped lead the Black Knights to a 7-5 dual meet record – their most dual wins since the 2013-14 season. Army West Point had four wrestlers compete at the 2017 NCAA Championships in St. Louis.
