September 25, 2019


BUFFALO, NY – University at Buffalo head coach John Stutzman has announced that Evan Ramos has been hired as an assistant coach. Ramos comes to Buffalo after serving as a volunteer assistant coach at Bucknell last season.

Ramos was a standout wrestler at Shippensburg University where he compiled an overall record of 98-17 and qualified for three NCAA Division II National Championships.

Ramos twice captured All-America accolades in the 197-pound weight class, placing fourth in 2018 and fifth in 2017. The Raiders' first two-time All-American in nearly 10 years, he was ranked as high as No. 1 in the country entering the 2018 NCAA Championships.

Ramos went 64-5 in duals and a sparkling 44-1 in Division II duals. A three-time Super Region finalist, he earned titles in 2017 and 2018 at 197 pounds. He also captured four All-PSAC laurels after taking first in 2017 (197) and third in 2014 (184), 2016 (197) and 2018 (197). His 2017 title was Shippensburg's first since 2007 and eighth overall; he fell to the eventual champion in the semifinals the other three years.

Ramos graduated in 2018 with a bachelor's degree in criminal justice.
"I am excited to bring Coach Ramos on board," Stutzman said. "In just a short time, he has made a huge impact on the program and our student-athletes. He has shown to be a tireless worker and I'm excited for what the future holds."

Stutzman also announced that former UB wrester Muhamed McBryde will join the staff as a volunteer assistant. A two-time Academic All-MAC selection, McBryde had a career record of 44-46. He placed fourth at the 2017 MAC Championships, falling just short of being an NCAA qualifier. Over the summer, McBryde was the 79 kg men's freestyle champion at the U23 World Team Trials Tournament and will represent Team USA at the U23 World Championships in Budapest, Hungary.

"I am excited to bring back one of our own, Coach McBryde, as our volunteer assistant coach," Stutzman said. "Coach McBryde is one of the hardest workers and most disciplined student-athletes I have ever been around. With the UWW U23 World Championships coming up, I'm looking forward to watching him compete for gold."

The 2019-20 season begins on November 2 at the Michigan State Open.
