After years coaching the USA Wrestling National Team, Brandon is now the Executive Director for the Pennsylvania Regional Training Center (PRTC). The PRTC’s mission is to create a pathway for elite student-athletes to national and international success in wrestling and in life. In Brandon’s own words:
“After being gone from Philadelphia and the University of Pennsylvania since graduating in 1998, it’s been very special to get back to the Philly area and begin spending time with so many friends who I have known more than 20 years. It was a fantastic honor to be the Assistant National Team Coach for USA Wrestling from 2009-2016. My job consisted of being the head coach at the Olympic Training Center for all the resident wrestlers as well as being our National Development Coach, which means I was responsible for the development of all the 15-20 year wrestlers across the country. It was a fantastic job for growing me as a leader, mentor, motivator, and coach. But, after being part of two Olympic Games (London & Rio) as a coach, it was time to have a more micro focus, begin traveling less, and focusing on my family more.
In April 2016, I accepted the position as the Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Regional Training Center (PRTC), which is a non-profit organization centered in Philadelphia. As the ED, I will be responsible for coaching our senior level wrestlers toward Olympic and World medals, coaching qualified high school wrestlers who live within 250 miles of Philadelphia, mentoring the wrestling coaches from Beat The Streets Philadelphia, fundraising, budgeting, and ultimately being accountable to the PRTC Board of Directors. It’s a significant endeavor that is ideal for this stage of my life. I’m excited to continue coaching and also really looking forward to the new leadership challenges that lie ahead.”
