About our Coaching Staff:
Head Coach Ian Ferguson

He teaches a Leadership Class at Central in addition to coaching.

Assistant Coach Austin Hertel

A 2022 graduate of Gannon University, Coach Hertel lettered at 133 and 141 and was a 2-time NCAA qualifier and 3-time Scholar All-American for the Knights.  He brings youth, energy, and the latest technique to our wrestling room. A native of Rochester, NY, he is currently enrolled in a Ph.D. program at Pitt.

Dom Means, '17

Coach Means is a 2023 Div II All-American who placed 4th at 157 for Gannon University.  As a Central Catholic grad and state qualifier, he has intimate knowledge of the history and traditions of our outstanding school.  He joins the staff for the ’23-24 season and we are motivated to have him back in Pittsburgh to mentor Viking wrestlers.

Assistant Coach Joe Brasile

A native of New York, Coach Brasile settled in western Pennsylvania after graduating from Slippery Rock in 1984 and began coaching football and wrestling right away.  With over 30 years of experience, Coach Brasile spent most of his career coaching wrestling at the varsity and middle school level at Hampton, where he also served as an elementary school teacher.
