UJ hires new wrestling coach

The University of Jamestown hired Jeremy Hernandez late Friday afternoon to fill the vacant men’s wrestling job

Hernandez replaces C.J. Campbell, who took an assistant job elsewhere.

“Although young, we will grow up fast, so we are competing on the highest level now rather than in the future,” Hernandez said in a press release. “My education and wrestling expectations are high and we will work very diligently until those expectations are met. Then we will raise our expectations even higher. I believe hard work leads to accomplishment and we will work as hard as possible to be the best we possibly can.”

Hernandez has more than 22 years of experience in coaching. He was an assistant at New Mexico Highlands and volunteered on the Colorado Springs Olympic Training Center women’s wrestling staff the past two years.

“I feel fortunate that we found a coach of Jeremy’s caliber this late in the summer,” UJ athletic director Lawrie Paulson said. “I think we had multiple good candidates and feel that Jeremy will be a great fit for the University.”
