Free the DSU Wrestling Recruits!

As many of you know, Delaware State University has let Coach Earl Walker go basically because he was successful in building a wrestling program at DSU. Their excuse is that he was working another full time job. Other than that, we have been given nothing except that he was insubordinate. Anyone that knows or has met Earl Walker, knows that he is anything but that. They feel that his $30K salary is a deserving salary for a D1 coach with a doctorate. He offered to work on campus if they would offer a teaching position. According to Coach Walker, they agreed to this but never followed through. DeState will not release the wrestlers that Earl recruited until they hire a new coach. They should either bring Earl back on his terms or let HIS recruits go. Let these young men explore their options and if they chose to stay with DSU and the still yet to be named new coach, then so be it. GIVE THEM THE CHOICE! These kids did not go there for the wrestling tradition at DSU, they went for Coach Walker! Do the right thing and release these young men!

Our coach was part time. How can you field a competitive team with a part time coach. The best thing that DSU ever did was hiring Earl, and him bringing in Sheldon. With those two, Delaware wrestling would be on it's way to be being a powerhouse. With the wrestlers ranked in the nation in Delaware high schools, you would think that DSU would want to try to keep it in state.
