Notre Dame Names Voiles Head Wrestling Coach

Thursday, August 9, 2018

Notre Dame High School in Chattanooga has named Tim Voiles as the new head wrestling  coach. 
Voiles will take over the head coaching role for the Irish wrestling program and has been a mainstay at Notre Dame. 

As an assistant coach (2002-17), Voiles would help lead the Fighting Irish to three consecutive TSSAA Dual State Championships (2005, 2006, 2007) and a State Duals Runner Up in 2008.

The former high school All American, wrestled at Lookout Valley where he would become a two time state champion and posted a 216-18 record.  Voiles would then wrestle at Carson Newman where he was a four year starter and posted over 100 collegiate wins while qualifying for the national tournament twice.  

Voiles will have a wealth of knowledge and experience as he has named Rabbit Turner as an assistant coach for the Fighting Irish.  The former Red Bank and Soddy Daisy standout was a TSSAA State Finalist in 1997 for the Trojans and has worked extensively with several club teams in the Chattanooga area.  

“I am excited for the opportunity to serve as the head coach for the Irish wrestling program” said Voiles.  “I have always looked at Notre Dame as family and these past seventeen years have been a wonderful experience. It’s going to be a privilege to continue working with John Mullin, Melissa Wolff, and now Coach Turner as we are looking to build on the tradition of Notre Dame Wrestling”.
