Cory King enters his sixth year on the Spartan coaching staff after spending two seasons as the assistant wrestling coach at Smithfield High School in Smithfield, Va. King, a Mercyhurst College graduate, brings plenty of experience to the Spartan staff. He posted a 30-17 career record at the Division II institution, missing several seasons due to redshirting and injury. King registered a banner season in 2003-2004 as he was named Mercyhurst’s first Scholar All-American, finished fifth at Eastern Regionals, and was an alternate for the NCAA tournament that season.
Along with providing quality instruction for the Spartans, King has also put in tireless efforts on the recruiting trail. His work has helped the Green and White bring in a number of outstanding young wrestlers with the potential to succeed on the collegiate level.
