About the event
Come join a wrestling clinic hosted by PV Youth Wrestling.
In three short seasons, McLean has restored the Mules to prominence in the conference, region and Division III. He has coached the team to a 43-20 record in dual meets, setting a school record with 18 wins in 2019 and tying the mark the following season.
In 2020, McLean was named Centennial Conference coach of the year after leading Muhlenberg to a perfect 6-0 record in dual meets. The Mules came in second at the CC Championships, their best finish in 13 years, and earned a national ranking for the first time in program history. They crowned three CC champions and qualified three wrestlers for the NCAA Division III Championships.
In his first season, McLean coached the Mules to their first Centennial Conference champion in nine years and the championship of the Scotty Wood Duals.
The 2018-19 season brought even greater success, with Muhlenberg breaking the 17-year-old school record for wins in dual meets (18) and crowning three champions at the CC Championships for the first time since 2007. The Mules finished just 3.5 points out of second place at the CC Championships and sent six wrestlers to the podium at the NCAA Mideast Regional, with two coming up one win short of qualifying for nationals.
A 2001 graduate of Muhlenberg, McLean earned All-America honors by finishing eighth at 141 pounds at the NCAA Championships as a senior. He also won the Centennial Conference championship that year, finishing with a record of 34-11 – the second-most wins in a season in program history.
McLean also went 28-10 and was the CC runner-up at 126 in 1998. He ended his career with a 71-31 record.
Since 2003, McLean had served the New Brunswick (N.J.) School District in a variety of roles, including head wrestling coach, assistant football coach, assistant track & field coach and assistant athletic director. He also has coached football at The Pingry School (N.J.).
In 2006, McLean re-established the defunct New Brunswick High School wrestling program after a 25-year absence. Starting from scratch and forced to practice in hallways and other area schools at the beginning of his tenure, McLean built a program whose roster numbered in the 40s. The program now fields a youth program and a competitive middle school team as well. He was also one of the co-founders of the New Jersey Urban Wrestling League.
McLean was named Greater Middlesex Conference Blue Division coach of the year in 2016 after leading the Zebras to a 21-8 record. New Brunswick qualified for team sectionals last year and have had a winning record five years running as well as qualifying a handful of wrestlers for the regional tournament.
