Cleveland State University head wrestling coach Josh Moore announced the hiring of Riley Shaw as an assistant coach in August 2018.
Shaw will join the CSU staff two years after leaving his mark as one of the top athletes in the program’s recent history. He was a three-time NCAA Championships qualifier and was a two-time Eastern Wrestling League champion at heavyweight. Shaw won 30 matches in his senior season in 2015-16, including two victories at NCAA’s, and won over 100 matches in a Viking singlet.
"Riley had a great career at Cleveland State and is excited about giving back to the program and assisting our student-athletes," Moore said at the time of Shaw's hiring. "It is important to keep recent alumni around the program after graduation, and I am grateful to have his loyalty to CSU wrestling. Riley will work closely in developing our upper weights."
A native of Washington, Ohio, Shaw earned a Bachelor’s degree in political science from Cleveland State in 2016. He is currently enrolled in CSU’s Cleveland-Marshall College of Law.
