Catching up with Chandler

Posted: February 11, 2013 by kelseyray in Uncategorized

Roger Chandler, inducted into the 2008 Indiana University Hall of Fame, won wrestling letters in 1994, 1995, 1996 and 1997.  He was the IU-Male-Athlete of the year in 1997 as well as the Big Ten Champion that same year.  To say the least, ’97  was a major year for Chandler.  He also won the NCAA Championship.  Chandler set the IU record for both wins and pins.

So… where is he now?

Today, Chandler is in his 15th year as the Assistant Head Coach for wrestling at Michigan State University.

Chandler finished his time at Indiana with a 134-25 record.  He graduated with a degree in sports management.
