News from Lindsey Wilson College

COLUMBIA, KY - (Tue 10 Jan 2017) - Lindsey Wilson wrestling head coach Corey Ruff announced that former Blue Raider grappler Myron Bradbury has been hired as a full-time assistant coach with the program on Tuesday.

"Myron's hire was an easy decision due to his passion for our program," Ruff said. "He ultimately wants to lead his own program, and that excites me most of all. He brings so much to the table, but maybe the most comforting thing is his ability to recruit. I'm very proud of Myron and I'm excited to continue to have an influence on his career."

Bradbury returns to his alma mater to begin his third season as a coach with the Blue Raiders during the 2016-17 season. It marks his first year as a full-time assistant after previously serving as a part-time and student assistant for two seasons from 2014-16.

Before returning to Lindsey Wilson, Bradbury spent the 2016 summer and fall months as an assistant wrestling coach at Lyon College in Batesville, AR where he helped recruit both male and female wrestlers to the institution and designed and managed the team lifting program. He also served as the head coach of the Team Kentucky All-State Wrestling Team in March.

In Bradbury's previous two seasons on the Blue Raider coaching staff, Lindsey Wilson finished 12th at the 2016 NAIA National Championships and third at the 2015 NAIA National Championships, the highest finish in program history. In those two years, 11 Blue Raiders earned NAIA All-American honors, three earned NAIA Scholar-Athlete honors, 12 received All Mid-South Conference selections and nine collected MSC Academic accolades. There was also one MSC Wrestler of the Year, one MSC Freshman of the Year and one NAIA National Champion in that time. Bradbury was heavily involved with the recruitment process during those seasons.

Before joining the coaching ranks, Bradbury completed his four-year career on the mat with a 42-24 record. He was a two-time national qualifier and earned Second Team All-MSC honors his senior season in 2013-14. Prior to attending Lindsey Wilson, Bradbury was a two-time state champion at Trinity High School in Louisville and was an integral part to the program's team titles during his junior and senior seasons. He finished in the top three at the state tournament all four years at Trinity.

Bradbury graduated from Lindsey Wilson in 2016 with a degree in health communication.
