Kurt Golder (L) and Sam Mikulak
April 25, 2014
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- IMG College's Michigan Sports Marketing has announced that University of Michigan head men's gymnastics coach Kurt Golder as well as seven-time NCAA champion Sam Mikulak and five-time NCAA All-American Syque Caesar, fresh of winning back-to-back NCAA Team Titles, will be featured on the "Michigan Athletics Coaches' Show" with Ira Weintraub live on Monday (April 28) from 7-8 p.m. at Pizza House in Ann Arbor. The show will be carried on WTKA 1050 AM (Ann Arbor) and WXYT 1270 AM (Detroit).
Mikulak, the reigning U.S. all-around champion, secured his third NCAA all-around title in four years, scoring a 91.10 in the NCAA Team and All-Around competition (Friday, April 11). He followed his performance with an NCAA parallel bar title (Saturday, April 12), defending his 2013 crown. He also took fourth on floor exercise and eighth on vault. Mikulak ends his Michigan career with seven NCAA titles as well as 17 All-America citations, making him the third-most cited gymnast of all-time. The national titles tie him with both Jim Hartung and Joe Giallombardo for the most ever in NCAA history.
Caesar ends his career with five NCAA All-America citations and was the 2012 Big Ten parallel bar champion and participated in the 2012 Olympic Games, representing Bangladesh. In his six years as a Wolverine, he took home three NCAA championships in his career, becoming the first U-M athlete in 53 years to accomplish the feat. Several members of the men's swimming and diving teams (1958-61) are also in the prestigious category.
Golder recently earned his fourth NCAA title in his time at his alma mater (1999, 2010, 2013, 2014) and is now tied with legendary swimming coach Gus Stager for the third-most NCAA titles by a coach in school history; he trails only Matt Mann (13) and football coach Fielding Yost (six). The back-to-back NCAA titles are the first for any U-M sport since 1969-70, as trampoline won in 1969-70 and men's swimming and diving accomplished the feat in 1958-59. He also earned Big Ten and NCAA Coach of the Year for the second straight season.
Fans are invited to watch the championship trio live at Pizza House during the broadcast. Pizza House is located at 618 Church Street and the broadcast will take place upstairs on the second floor. For restaurant information or table reservations, please call (734) 995-5095.
