The Cal Poly wrestling team hired Brandon Hatchett as an assistant coach Thursday.
Prior to coming to Cal Poly, Hatchett was training for the United State Olympic Wrestling team before the sport was dropped but has recently been reinstated.
Hatchett wrestled at Lehigh University and was a two-time NCAA Division I All-American in 2011 and 2012 and a national runner up at 165 pounds in 2012.
In high school, Hatchett was a three-time state champion at Oviedo High in Winter Springs, Fla. He also won the Dave Schultz High School Excellence Award for the state of Florida, presented by the National Wrestling Hall of Fame based on excellence in wrestling, scholastic achievement, citizenship, and community service.
