Travis Pascoe Takes Assistant Position At Arizona State
Aug. 1, 2011
TEMPE, Ariz. - Arizona State wrestling announced Monday that Travis Pascoe has been named an assistant coach. Pascoe spent the last five years as a volunteer assistant coach at Oregon State after spending the 2005-06 campaign at Fresno State.
A native of Spokane, Wash., he lettered at Nebraska, where, in 2005, he finished sixth at the NCAA Championships at 184 pounds. He was a three-time state champion in Washington and amassed a 138-8 overall record.
Two Oregon State wrestlers earned All-America honors under Pascoe's tutelage as he worked with the upper weight wrestlers. Ty Watterson (2007) and Colby Covington (2011) both earned All-American honors during his tenure and he helped coach OSU wrestlers to seven league titles, including Covington and Clayton Jack in 2011 in Corvallis.
"We want to thank Travis for all of his hard work at OSU the last five years," Oregon State head coach Jim Zalesky said. "Our coaching staff and student-athletes certainly look forward to seeing him on the other side of the mat in the years to come."
