MORGANTOWN, W.Va.  – West Virginia University Director of Athletics Oliver Luck announced today that Craig Turnbull’s contract as head wrestling coach will not be renewed for next season.
           
“Craig has spent the last 36 years as the head of the Mountaineer wrestling program, and we appreciate his many years of service to West Virginia University,” Luck said. “He took over at the helm of the WVU wrestling program in 1979 after serving as an assistant coach here under Fred Liechti, coaching hundreds of Mountaineer wrestlers along the way. We wish him the best.”
           
Turnbull guided the Mountaineers to a 287-214-9 career record. This season, the Mountaineers posted an 11-7 overall record and a 0-3 mark in the Big 12.
           
A national search for a new wrestling coach at WVU will begin immediately.
