Sanderson Resigns Position as Head Wrestling Coach

April 6, 2006

OREM, Utah - Utah Valley State wrestling coach Cody Sanderson has resigned his position in order to pursue other coaching opportunities.

The search for the second coach in Utah Valley State’s short wrestling history will begin immediately and is expected to be completed by early May.

Sanderson, a native of Heber City, Utah, leaves Utah Valley with a 22-26-1 all-time dual record in three seasons. He led the Wolverines to a 9-9 record during the 2005-06 season, including wins in seven of their final eight duals.

“Cody has done an excellent job in restoring collegiate wrestling to the state of Utah, here at Utah Valley,” said Utah Valley State Director of Athletics Mike Jacobsen. “We wish him and his family the very best as he moves on to new opportunities.”

“Choosing to leave Utah Valley State was an extremely difficult decision. Ultimately I had to do what was best for my wife and children,” said Sanderson. “The individuals that I have coached during the past three seasons are very fine young men. Because of their selfless commitment and determination, college wrestling has been restored in the state of Utah.”

Utah Valley State is the only school in Utah with a collegiate wrestling program. It was added before the 2003-04 season, coinciding with the school’s move to NCAA Division-I athletics.

“Wrestling is very important to our athletic program,” said Jacobsen. “We will find and hire the very best to take our program to new and greater heights. We have great young men in our program and they deserve the very best.”

“Utah Valley is certain to emerge as a very competitive Division I team,” said Sanderson. The athletic administration is committed to success, the high school wrestlers in the state consistently rank among the best in the nation, and the local community is very supportive.”

Those interested in the position should contact Director of Athletics Mike Jacobsen at 801-863-8998.
