Sources: Sunderland era over at PSU

According to two sources close to the Penn State wrestling team, the Troy Sunderland era of Penn State wrestling is officially over. The 11-year coach of the Nittany Lions met with athletic director Tim Curley on Thursday morning and was told he could either resign or be fired. As of right now, no decision has been made by Sunderland.
The future of Sunderland and assistant coaches Matt Dernlan, Aaron Anspach and Mark Perry are uncertain as the new coach would almost assuredly want to bring his own people with him. Sunderland amassed a 115-90-2 record in his 11 seasons. He coached 27 All-Americans and guided three wrestlers to national championships. In addition, under his tutelage, seven other wrestlers were NCAA finalists.

Penn State was 8-11-2 overall this season and 1-6-2 in the Big Ten, where the Lions placed ninth in the 11-team standings. At the NCAA meet in St. Louis last weekend, Penn State finished 17th in the team race. This story was first reported on bwi.rivals.com.
