Tyler Smith enters his first season as an assistant coach for the VMI wrestling program after being hired on in August of 2018.

Smith comes to the Institute following a stellar wrestling career at Bucknell University where he was a two-time NCAA Round of 12 finisher and three-time EIWA Conference place winner, including a second-place finish in 2018. He totaled 109 career victories while donning a Bison singlet and placed third at the prestigious Midlands Tournament as a senior.

A 2013 Pennsylvania state champion in high school, Smith was named a team captain at Bucknell his senior year and qualified for the NCAA Tournament all four years as a Bison as a 141-pounder. He ranks ninth all-time at Bucknell for career victories with 107 and ranks 11th in career winning percentage (.743).

A three-time EIWA placewinner, Smith is tied for eighth in the Bucknell wrestling annals in single season dual wins (16 in 2017-18), 11th in single season wins (31, 2016-17) and 12th in single-season winning percentage (.829, 2017-18).

Other responsibilities at Bucknell included serving as a camp counselor at Bison System Wrestling Camps in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, and as a leader at the Bucknell Bison Leadership Academy. He also served as a camp counselor at JROB Intensive Camps based in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Smith graduated from Bucknell in May 2018 with a bachelor’s degree in political science.
