Jones accepts position as U.S. freestyle head coach

University of Pennsylania Sports Information

PHILADELPHIA -- The University of Pennsylvania's head wrestling coach Zeke Jones has announced his resignation to accept a position as the head coach of the United States freestyle national team.

With Jones' resignation, Penn has also announced that assistant coach Rob Eiter has been appointed interim head coach of the program.

"Penn has been a tremendous place for me and my family, "Jones said. "It has been a great place to work and live. Penn is one of the best places for a student-athlete to achieve success academically and athletically and working with men as gifted as the ones at Penn has been a blessing."

"This is a great opportunity for Zeke and we wish him the best with U.S.A. Wrestling, "Penn's Director of Athletics Steve Bilsky said. "At the same time, we feel very fortunate to have someone with Rob's ability and credentials to step up to the head coaching position."

Penn begins its 2008-09 wrestling season on November 22 with a pair of dual matches against Princeton (noon) and Michigan (2 p.m.) at The Palestra.
