Matt Zwaschka, a former assistant coach for the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater wrestling team, returned to campus as he was named head coach on September 18, 2018.
“We are thrilled to welcome Matt Zwaschka as our head wrestling coach,” Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Todd Garzarelli said. “His familiarity with our program as a former assistant, combined with his passion for building on the rich tradition of Warhawk wrestling and his recruiting experience in the area, make him a great fit here at UW-Whitewater.”
Zwaschka served as an assistant coach for the Warhawks from 2005-11, working in all aspects of the program. He helped the team tie for 12th at the 2009 NCAA Championships and coached seven All-Americans, eight Academic All-Americans and six individual Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference champions.
After leaving UW-Whitewater, Zwaschka was hired as head wrestling coach at the Milwaukee School of Engineering in 2013, helping four Raiders reach the NCAA Championships during his five years at the helm. He coached one All-American and seven Academic All-Americans while overseeing all aspects of the program and serving as assistant director of recreation at MSOE.
