McDonough has joined Cornell (D3) coaching staff
That's the best he can do?
I’d like to see him in my wrestling room with my kids. Doesn’t get any better. He’ll should fly up the coaching ranks,I hope that serves as a great stepping stone for him. He is a great mentor for student athletes in addition to his coaching skills. I'd still like to see him back in IC at some point.
Good call Pablow, nothing but the best for Matt.D1 coaches, and particular assistants, spend a lot of time on recruiting. Matt can settle in at Cornell and concentrate on coaching. I'm sure he had (and will have) many D1 opportunities. It's no accident he went this direction.
I'm sure it being 15 miles from where he went to high school didn't hurt, especially if he has family nearby that can help with his young kids...D1 coaches, and particular assistants, spend a lot of time on recruiting.

Is that the best comment you have to offer?That's the best he can do?
Word on the street is better than I heard.Word on the street was he applied at several places, interviewed at a few and was not offered any positions. Possibly he just wants to be in the area. Heck, he should start a club. Those club coaches can make a bunch of money and don't work very hard......okay, maybe they do work hard but the amount of time they put in is much less than most jobs.
Should we do the math? Easy numbers. 100 kids per month. $100 per kid. $10,000 per month. Overhead? Not a lot unless you are paying other coaches and buying/leasing a facility. Lets go high here. $4000 per month in overhead. $6000 per month gross pay. $72,000 per year to coach kids wrestling.
