Coker University Wrestling Coach Derrick Nelson recently welcomed the Wrestlers in Business Network to campus as the university officially kicked off a partnership with the non-profit organization.

Nelson and WIBN's David Fallon toured Coker's athletic facilities and explored ways to involve Coker student athletes in the new initiative.

WIBN's mission is to "build a community that serves as a platform to connect our members and facilitate business and job opportunities across the nation by leveraging a talent rich pipeline of wrestling alumni, with the ultimate byproduct of increasing reinvestment back to the sport."

Nelson will work with WIBN to help provide personal growth for Coker student athletes, while advancing student careers and promoting the sport of wrestling.
