Episode 168 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast goes to the NAIA where Jimmy May is being called upon again to start a new program in the state of Kansas.
May spent over 30 years as a high school coach in Nevada and then he retired. Then he called some friends who enticed him to apply for a new coaching position at Baker University. Well, May accepted and launched the new NAIA program. Then he stepped away from wrestling, but then got called back into it. He's now been tabbed as the new head coach at the brand new program at Kansas Wesleyan.
For May, it's familiar territory — Kansas and a new NAIA program. But on Short Time, we learn about what drew May to the Midwest and we talk about his days wrestling with Gary Mayabb, Mike Hagerty and others at Central Missouri and the role of smaller programs when it comes to putting the next generation of coaches and teachers into the ranks.
