Daniel Cormier Accepts New Job As Local High School Wrestling Coach

It would appear that UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier has picked up another position outside of the octagon. This time, the wrestling phenom has landed a coaching job at a local high school.

Cormier tends to stay busy when outside of the octagon. The fighter is the head coach of his own Daniel Cormier-AKA Youth Wresting club. However, the fighter also has programs in two local San Jose gyms, LUTE! Training Academy and Knoxx Gym.

As reported by MMA Fighting, Daniel Cormier is also now the Gilroy High School head wrestling coach. The school resides in Northern California’s Santa Clara County, near Cormier’s home.

Speaking on the matter, Cormier offered the following statement to MMA Fighting:

“This opportunity is huge for me. Wrestling has been the foundation for everything I’ve done. I’m excited to coach a great team in Gilroy and excited to give back to the town that has accepted me and my family so openly.”

“Thank you to (principal) Dr. Marco Sanchez for giving me this opportunity and thanks to my wife Salina for allowing me to pile more onto an already full plate.”
