John Denuto was announced as the new wrestling coach at Camden Catholic High School on Thursday.
Denuto has coached for more than 15 years at the high-school level with stops at Sayreville, St. John Vianney, Raritan and a one-year stint last season at Pennsville.
“There are certain jobs in your career that just seem to be the right fit with the right program and you feel the synergy. This is one of those opportunities. I consider this opportunity at Camden Catholic to be one of the very best in NJ,” Denuto said in a press release.
Messages left to Denuto were not returned.
“We are excited to have John Denuto join our proud Irish wrestling tradition here at Camden Catholic,” said Jim Lumley, former CCHS championship wrestler and a member of the selection committee. “He brings excitement, passion and a wealth of wrestling knowledge to our historic program. We would also like to thank Ryan McCormick for his contributions.”
Denuto takes over for Ryan McCormick, who stepped down after last season. The Irish were 72-35 with two state and three sectional titles along with a team district championship under McCormick.
Matt Walsh, father of Irish state champions Taylor and Chad Walsh, will be an assistant coach.
