Bradley Central wrestling coach Steve Logsdon said today he has decided to resign.

“It’s the right time,” he said. “There are no frustrations beyond those that any wrestling coach has. We’re looking at a situation where the program is going to be left in good hands. I feel good about.”

Logsdon, the school’s first state champion, ends his career with a record of 382-26, 20 state championships (dual and traditional combined), and 35 wrestlers who have won at least one traditional state championship. His list of winners includes current University of Tennessee at Chattanooga coach Heath Eslinger and former Moc Matt Keller, a two-time NCAA All-American and four-time Tennessee state champion.
