In the fifth Pinned Down podcast, host Nick Carver interviews MSU’s head wrestling coach Tom Minkel.
Minkel gives his opinion on the wrestling season, how he anticipates replacing All-American heavyweight Mike McClure, and the plan for the offseason.
After, Carver asks what drives coach Minkel to keep coming back to the mat, and Minkel reveals some surprising information about his life before being the head coach at MSU.
He includes touring in a rock and roll band with his wife as a guitarist and living in Latin America for a period of time.
Nick Carver is the host of Pinned Down for Impact Sports.
