WASHINGTON, D.C. – Continuing his involvement with wrestling on the international scene, American University head coach Teague Moore will coach the U.S. Men's Freestyle Junior World Team at next week's Junior World Championships in Trnava, Slovakia.
Moore, who will be in his eighth season as head coach of the Eagles this fall, coached Team USA at the U-23 World Championships in Poland in November, 2017. He helped three Americans to medals at that competition, including one gold and two bronze.
He will be joined on the Men's Freestyle coaching staff by Rob Eiter, the head coach at St. Paul's Independent Day School in Maryland, and Kevin Jackson, the national freestyle development coach.
During his days as a wrestler, Moore was a four-time National Team member (2000, 2002, 2003, 2004) and finished second at the 2002 World Team Trials.
Moore, who has had three All-Americans and 17 NWCA All-Academic Team honorees in his time at American, was an NCAA individual champion and a three-time All-American while competing for Oklahoma State. In the past two seasons, Moore's wrestlers have earned 17 positions on Eastern Intercollegiate Wrestling Association academic teams.
Team USA will also be sending Greco-Roman and women's freestyle teams to the competition.
