One of the most decorated Penn coaches is passing the torch to one of the program’s most decorated former athletes.

Matt Valenti

Matt Valenti C’07 will succeed Roger Reina C’84 WEv’05 as head coach of Penn wrestling beginning in the 2025–26 season. Reina will remain as head coach next season, with Valenti serving as associate head coach.

A two-time NCAA wrestling champion (2006 and 2007) and a Penn Athletics Hall of Famer, Valenti was a Penn assistant wrestling coach from 2009 to 2015 before stepping into an administration role for Penn Athletics.

Reina, also a member of the Penn Athletics Hall of Fame, has won a program-record 248 matches and eight Ivy League titles over two stints as the team’s head coach: from 1986 to 2005 and again since 2017.
