NCAA Wrestling: Big Ten Wrestling Championship Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports

Maryland wrestling added a key piece to its coaching staff with the announcement of Elijah Oliver joining the program as a volunteer assistant.

Oliver, an Indiana native, was a four-year starter and a team captain for the Indiana Hoosiers. He was also a four-time NCAA qualifier and accumulated a 91-52 record during his college career.

As a senior in 2018-19, Oliver tallied 29 wins and finished fourth at the Big Ten Championships. Over the course of his career at Indiana, Oliver never finished below eighth at the conference championships.

“Elijah is an exciting young coach that I couldn’t be more pumped about,” Maryland head coach Alex Clemsen said in a statement. “He knows the Big Ten and brings another piece of our puzzle together in College Park. We can’t wait to have him join us in July and get to work as a full strength staff.”

The Terps are coming off of a rough 2020-21 campaign that saw them go 0-8 during the regular season and finish 14th at the Big Ten Championships.
