February 01, 2018


VESTAL, N.Y. - After lifting Binghamton wrestling to an undefeated run in the EIWA (5-0) over the last two months as acting head coach, Kyle Borshoff has been named the head coach moving forward.

In his third year with the program, Borshoff took over the reigns as acting head coach in December and has the Bearcats surging toward the postseason. Binghamton (8-4) has won five straight dual matches and after a win over nationally-ranked Drexel on Saturday, BU made its first appearance in the national polls in six years.

"We are excited to have Kyle guide our wrestling program into the future," Director of Athletics Patrick Elliott said. "His experience as a coach and leader at the Division I level combined with his stellar career as a student-athlete will allow us to continue to build a national wrestling program on the mat, in the classroom and in the community."

Borshoff is a former two-time All-American and key recruiter for an American University program that twice finished in the NCAA top-20 during his five-year tenure. In his previous two seasons as an assistant at Binghamton, he helped steer BU to 20 dual wins, four NCAA qualifiers and a 15-8 record against EIWA opponents. Last season, the Bearcats went 8-4 vs. conference foes and placed eighth at the EIWA Championship - the program's highest finish in four years of membership.

"I am extremely excited to lead the Bearcat Wrestling program," Borshoff said. "I want to thank Patrick Elliott and Harvey Stenger for giving me this opportunity. It is an exciting time to be a part of the Binghamton University Wrestling program. We have a young team of exceptional student-athletes who strive toward success. This team is going to continue to grow together every day, and will accomplish great thing during their careers."

In his elite collegiate wrestling career at American, Borshoff was a three-year captain, three-time NCAA qualifier and two-time All-American (2009, 2010). He was a four-time EIWA placewinner and went on to become a three-time World Team Trials qualifier.

He earned his bachelor's degree in business administration: real estate finance from American in 2010. He also received his master's degree in health promotion management in 2015.

A native of Pittsford, a suburb of Rochester, Borshoff is the son of Binghamton Hall of Fame member Tim Borshoff '76. Kyle's brother Jasen Borshoff, is the Bearcats' interim associate head coach.
