Burrell coach Bud Sines left Wisconsin and arrived in Western Pennsylvania because of his wife's change in job location.
In less than two months, Sines will leave the area and resettle in Georgia for the same reason.
Sines, the second-year coach of the Bucs, will step down after season's end and rejoin his wife, who has already moved to the Atlanta area after taking a job there.
The Sines' farewell tour is off to an ideal start, as Burrell won its seventh straight team title Saturday. Sines' wrestlers and assistants are aware of his plan.
“Last year, I knew there was a streak going, and when (Cory) Klems won (to clinch the title), it was just like a wave of people rolling me in the ocean, and I realized, wow, this is important,” Sines said. “So this year, I felt a little pressure. … I feel relieved now.”
Sines is confident Burrell will continue to thrive after his departure and cited the strength of his staff — assistants Josh Shields, Gino Lanzino, Zach Pisano and Joe Makara.
“We put together a staff of guys who have come through the (Chris) Como-(Isaac) Greeley machine,” Sines said, referring to former Burrell coaches who remain involved with the program. “Everyone throws out the same message. Everyone takes a few guys under their wing.”
