Wrestling head coach Tim Flynn will remain at Edinboro following an interview for the head coaching position at University of Pittsburgh. The development was first reported by John Dudley at The Erie Times-News. The Spectator previously confirmed the interview had occurred.

This past year, Flynn led the Fighting Scots, the university's lone division 1 program, to a 20th overall finish at the NCAA National Championships. He has won the PSAC Coach of the Year award on 14 occassions out of his 20 years as head coach. He has led the team to 17 PSAC titles, 15 EWL titles and has had 38 athletes gain All-American status. Three national champions have been crowned in his time. 

Pittsburgh also interviewed Lehigh University's Pat Santoro, an alumnus of the program, but he also returned to his program. 

Gabriel Hypes, George Schmidt and Kimberly Firestine contributed to this report.
