Former Penn State Wrestler Vincenzo Joseph Joins Arizona State Coaching Staff
Former Penn State wrestler Vincenzo Joseph is joining Arizona State wrestling’s coaching staff as the program’s recruiting coordinator, the university announced Thursday.
As the recruiting coordinator, Joseph will manage all wrestling recruiting, target the nation’s best high school prospects, and schedule potential student-athlete visits.
“This kind of recruiting doesn’t happen very often,” Arizona State head coach Zeke Jones said in a release. “You’re talking about a world class athlete and person with tremendous character joining the staff. He has great east and west coast connections that will definitely benefit our program and drive some of the nation’s best to ASU, so we’re extremely excited to have him leading our recruiting efforts.
The Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, native spent the 2021 season as an assistant coach at Stanford before relocating to Tempe, Arizona, where he has been training with Mark Perry’s Sunkist Kids Wrestling Club.
During his time in Happy Valley, Joseph boasted a 99-9 record en route to two NCAA Championships. Joseph also posted 28 pins during his career, 14 of which came during the 2018 season.
Joseph will have his work cut out for him after the Sun Devils finished the 2022-23 season at No. 19 nationally.
