Michigan golf coach Andrew Sapp accepts job at North Carolina; Wolverines name new wrestling assistants

By AnnArbor.com Staff

Some shuffling in the Michigan athletic department on Friday left the Wolverines looking for a new men’s golf coach and welcoming a pair of wrestling assistant coaches.

Andrew Sapp, Michigan’s head golf coach for the past nine seasons, left to coach at his alma mater, North Carolina.

“I am sad to be leaving such a wonderful place, and the only place I would ever leave Michigan for is my alma mater," Sapp said in a statement. He led the Wolverines to the NCAA Championships in two of the last three seasons.

Earlier Friday, Michigan wrestling coach Joe McFarland added Sean Bormet and Donny Pritzlaff as assistant coaches on his staff.

They replace former assistants Kirk Trost and Mike Kulczycki, who were fired in May.

Bormet was an All-American at Michigan in 1993 and 1994 and currently owns one of the nation’s best training clubs, Overtime School of Wrestling in Naperville, Ill.

Pritzlaff was the associate head coach at Wisconsin, where he was a four-time All-American between 1998 to 2001.

Sapp was not that great of a coach.. He turned away a countless number of very talented players from Michigan and the midwest that would have died to play for the University of Michigan, Instead, he recruited players from Georgia, India, and the like that quite frankly were not that good. Michigan golf will be better without him.
