Surprised no one has brought this up, but 6 new coaches in the pac-10! Lots of young guys stepping in and taking over. How could 6 new coaches impact the PAC (better or worst)? Anybody anxious to see any new coach in particular in action?

In my opinion this is great for the sport of wrestling in general, I think we are going to see lots of changes styles and philosophies. But ultimately my hope is that these guys take a fresh look on how dual meets are handled (music, cheerleaders, giving away free stuff), I want to see these guys really focus on drawing a crowd and hyping duals meets up. I also think with younger more relatable coaches,  we are going to see the number of kids wrestling rise as well.
 
I'm excited to see how things pan out for the PAC sure will be interesting.
Oh and here's the list:
Methacton- Brad Clark
Upper Merion- Tim Harner
Pottstown- Nick Wade 
Boyertwon- Dave Jones
Phoenixville- Brandan Clark
upper perk- Steve Adams

I think it, usually, takes 2 or 3 years to see real changes in the program from a change in coaches.

Don't have a full list yet, but I'm working on it.  I'll post something when I know the list is complete.

ouch!  half these guys I followed when they were in high school.  And that wasn't so long ago, seems to me.  

oh well, If they coach like they wrestled, things are looking up.

Nick Wade graduated from Phoenixville in 2004.

Steve Adam graduated from Brandywine Heights in 1993.  He was an assistant coach at Brandywine for many years before taking over as head coach there after long-time coach Sam Lovello passed away last year.

There some interesting dynamics in there
 
Brandan and Brad Clark being brothers
Tim and Mark Harner being father and son
 
I know Phoenixville and upper merion have some growing to and there teams don't wrestle , but could be interesting in the future.
I'm actually anxious to see how these guys do. I'm a little concerned about Brandan's lack of experience and his young age.  
I also want to see how Tim plans on improving upper merions numbers.
pretty sure Dave Jones and Brad Clark wrestled  a few times back in high school. Buts what's going to be really interesting is to see how they deal with taking over team's that were successful just last year.
