PITTSBURGH—The University of Pittsburgh announced today a leadership change with the Pitt wrestling program effective immediately.

Assistant staff members Matt Kocher and Drew Headlee will serve as acting co-head coaches for the balance of the 2017 season. Jason Peters, the Panthers’ head coach since 2013, is no longer with the University.

“We will continue to provide our student-athletes and coaches with our full support as they work to achieve the many goals they set for the 2017 season,” said Dr. Randy Juhl, who will assume the responsibilities of acting athletic director at the end of this week.

A national search for a new head coach will begin immediately.
