Doyle Named Student Graduate Assistant
CORVALLIS, Ore. – Redshirt senior Colt Doyle was named a student graduate assistant with the Oregon State wrestling program, head coach Chris Pendleton announced Wednesday morning.
"When I got this job, Colt was one of the kids I was probably looking forward to working with the most," said Pendleton. "In the short time that we got to spend together, you could tell he was a natural leader and someone that we needed in the program.
"We can't control life sometimes and he faced some adversity, but I still wanted him to be part of the program and he wanted to be part of the program. He has so much more to give to Oregon State wrestling."
Doyle wrestled at 174 and 184 for the Beavers in three years before having to retire due to medical hardship. He racked up a 37-21 record in an OSU singlet.
"I feel like this is a sense of closure with wrestling," Doyle said. "I put 20 years of my life into wrestling and having it end early is disappointing, but being able to still help my teammates and motivate them is something I'm looking forward to."
The San Diego, California native took runner-up at the 2020 Pac-12 Championships at 184 and finished third at the conference championships in 2019 at 174.
During his career at Oregon State, Doyle recorded six career pins, four technical falls, eight major decisions, and 18 decisions.
The Beavers return to action on Sunday in Gill Coliseum for their home opener against Utah Valley at 4 pm (PT) and Stanford at 6 pm.
