Posted by McCallie Communications and Marketing on May 03, 2018

Jake Yost will be McCallie's head wrestling coach for the 2018-19 school year. Yost will fill the role held by Mike Newman for the past 10 years. Newman is stepping down as the head coach but will remain with the program as an assistant coach.

Under Newman, more than 23 McCallie wrestlers have earned individual state titles, including five state champions in each of the past two seasons. As a team, the Blue Tornado has been state runner up in the TSSAA traditional tournament for the past two years and was also runner up in the state duals in 2017.

“I am excited about this great opportunity to become McCallie's head wrestling coach,” Yost said. “Thankfully, Coach Newman has agreed to continue to be a part of the coaching staff. His passion for wrestling and decades of coaching experience will continue to be a tremendous asset for the program, and I am fortunate to work with him and the rest of the accomplished and committed coaching team.”

Newman made the decision to step into an assistant role so that he can continue to assist with the Blue Tornado football program and perform other duties at the school.
