Purdue wrestling announced several staff changes and additions Tuesday, and following that release the Always Aggressive Podcast was lucky enough to welcome new volunteer assistant coach LeRoy Gardner to the show.

In addition to head coach Tony Ersland‘s thoughts and impressions on Gardner, the Golden Valley, Minnesota native takes us through his wrestling journey and how he came to accept his new position with the Boilermakers. A three-time All-America honoree and 2004 NCAA Division III Champion, Gardner has spent the last six seasons as the head coach at the University of the Ozarks.

The return of college football and several other fall sports to the Purdue campus make for an exciting weekend in West Lafayette, and the guys talk about the different events coming this week.
