FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The son of Hall of Famer Bucky Maughan is leaving the coaching staff of the North Dakota State University wrestling program.

Bret Maughan says he won’t return next year, after 13 seasons as an assistant. He cites the physical challenge of training collegiate athletes and the time demands of coaching NCAA Division I wrestling.

Next season will be the first since 1963 without a Maughan on the NDSU staff. Bucky Maughan retired as head coach in 2011 after 47 years in which he built the Bison program into a national power. Bucky Maughan is a member of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame and the NCAA Division II Wrestling Hall of Fame.
