FRESNO BEE: Fresno State president will consider reinstating wrestling

Nov. 10, 2013, 11:13 a.m. (ET)

Fresno State's defunct wrestling program may be reborn after a six-year hiatus, university President Joseph Castro announced Friday morning.

Castro said he plans to assemble a team early next year to review all of Fresno State's athletics programs -- including men's soccer and wrestling, two programs that got the ax following tough budget years and a string of gender equity issues in the early 2000s.

"I think there is a compelling case that's being made for wrestling," he said, "and I want to make sure that information is all part of the review and the discussions."

Castro revealed his plans at a news conference where he also announced plans to launch a tablet program and seek $2.5 million from California State University trustees to help expand student enrollment next year by 800. The news conference marked his first 100 days in office.
