Wayne Murschell II has been named the new wrestling coach at Eastern High School.
Murschell, a Pitman graduate who wrestled under his father Wayne Murschell for the Panthers, replaces Gary Worthington who resigned in June.
Murschell works at Pitman as a health/phys. ed. teacher. He'll join Eastern's faculty in December, according to Vikings AD Phil Smart.
Murschell's first team will be loaded. The Vikings return two-time 140-pound state champ Anthony Baldosaro as well as 2008 135-pound state champ Hank Stinson, who missed most of last season with an injury.
