Edinboro wrestling coach Tim Flynn has garnered yet another coaching award after his 2013-14 Fighting Scot edition finished fifth at the NCAA Division I National Championships. The veteran coach has received a host of honors in the aftermath of the outstanding season, including NWCA NCAA Division I Wrestling Coach of the Year, InterMat’s Co-Coach of the Year, EWL and PSAC Coach of the Year, and Edinboro Coach of the Year. Now Flynn has now been recognized as WIN’s (Wrestling Insider Magazine) Dan Gable Coach of the Year. It is an award that Flynn admitted means a great deal to him given the name on the award. The fifth place finish at the NCAA Division I National Championships represented the highest finish in school history. Edinboro tied the record for most All-Americans with three, giving Flynn 33 All-Americans in his 17 years as Edinboro’s head coach.
In addition, the Fighting Scots won their first Eastern Wrestling League championship since 2010. It marked the 13th for Edinboro in Flynn’s 17 years, and Edinboro also won its third straight PSAC championship and 14th in his tenure.
