FRANKLIN SPRINGS, Ga. - Athletic Director Nate Moorman announces the hiring of Link Davis as the new Men's Wrestling Head Coach.
Davis is no stranger to Emmanuel as he has built up the Emmanuel women's wrestling program from the ground up over the previous three years. Links wife Kristie Davis who was named Co Head Coach of the Women's Program earlier this year will now assume the sole Head Coach position for the women's program.
"I would like to thank Nate Moorman and Dr. White for having the confidence in me to be able to take over our men's program." Says Coach Davis. "I am very thankful for this opportunity and looking forward to this new challenge. I have wanted to be a men's college wrestling coach from when I first decided to be a coach and now that dream has come true."
Davis has proven himself as an elite women's coach with several successes during his tenure at Emmanuel, most recently coaching one of his wrestlers to a National Championship at the WCWA National Tournament in February.
Davis still plans to assist with the women's wrestling program that he has been so invested in over the last several years.
"I think the biggest thing to being able to make this change was that I will still be able to help with the women's program as well." Davis continued. "I see things being just like one big wrestling family with Kristie taking on her new role as women's coach."
While a husband and wife leading both programs isn't a common thing seen in college programs, these two highly qualified individuals are certain to continue making an impact in the wrestling community. Congratulations to both Link and Kristie on their new roles as they work hard to make both programs the best in the country.
