Wyant has coached the Penn women for the past six years, and he guided the Quakers to the finals of the 2009-2010 Women’s National Team Championships (Howe Cup). He will continue to coach the women in addition to taking on the Penn men, succeeding former men’s coach Craig Thorpe-Clark, who announced that he was leaving Penn earlier this summer.
“I am excited about the opportunity and anxious to get to work,” Wyant said in a statement published on PennAthletics.com:
“I was attracted to the men’s coaching position for the same reasons that brought me to Penn in the first place — the caliber of student-athlete and the opportunity to win. Both of these teams are the priority, and our immediate goal is to put together a staff and plan that will allow us to maximize each team’s potential.
“I felt privileged to work alongside Craig (Thorpe-Clark) for six years,” Wyant added. “I am so fortunate to have the opportunity to succeed him and I hope that he stays close to the program. He provided stability to the men’s program for 11 years, developed many great players, and left a number of very talented athletes.”
