Coach Rich Gregor began wrestling competitively at
Springfield High School, where he was an outstanding varsity performer on
the mats for four years. After graduating from high school in 1959, Rich Gregor
decided to matriculate at Ohio
At the university, Gregor wrestled under legendary mat mentor Harry Houska for
four years, graduating in 1963. Later, Rich Gregor earned his masters degree
from Central Missouri State in 1965.
Over five decades (1960s to the 2000s), Gregor has coached in
Florida, Maryland, and
Ohio at both the collegiate
and scholastic levels. But his true home has always been Springfield High
School (now Edison Local High School), where he began and ended his coaching
Rich Gregor’s overall coaching record is 326-162-3, winning 69-percent of his
dual meets. His 1980 Springfield
High School squad won the
Ohio Valley Athletic Conference Class A Team Championship. As well as
coaching many OVAC and state placewinners, he also produced one of the OVAC’s
greatest wrestlers – Kelly Shields. Shields is one of only six elite wrestlers
to have won four Ron Mauck OVAC Wrestling Tournaments.
In 1998, Coach Rich Gregor’s wrestling biography was spotlighted on the cover of
the OVAC tournament souvenir program. A singular coaching honor so well
deserved regarding Ohio Valley wrestling.
Nick Trombetta, former ultra-successful coach at
East Liverpool, once said
of Coach Gregor, “A Gregor team was always in great shape, mentally tough and
A team always reflects the attitude and values of their coach - and his
wrestlers did. Coach Rich Gregor has always been respected by all of us in the
OVAC wrestling family as a great coach, loyal friend, and an outstanding human
In the mid-2000s, Gregor coached at Springfield Junior High School, where he had
the rare privilege of coaching his grandson Ryan who is now a senior at Edison
Local High School.
Rich Gregor is now retired and resides in Amsterdam, Ohio with his devoted wife
They have three daughters – Annie, Holly, and Meredith – and eight
grandchildren: Ryan, Hannah, Mark, Madeline, Zoe, Roman, Taylor, and Kennedy.
