Chuck Barbee begins role as NCAA secretary-rules editor for wrestling

Chuck Barbee began his role as the NCAA secretary-rules editor for wrestling on Tuesday.

Barbee, who is the director of the Arizona State University Senate Office, is a former wrestling standout at Oklahoma State University, where he was a three-time All-American and a member of the Cowboys’ national championship teams in 1989 and 1990.

Barbee graduated from Oklahoma State with a degree in secondary education and science in 1993 and earned a master’s degree in public administration at the University of Colorado Denver in 2010.

“Serving in the role of secretary-rules editor is an exciting opportunity for me,” Barbee said. “After having coached at the collegiate level for nearly 14 years and then getting out of coaching, I was looking for an avenue to be involved and realized that when this position came open, it was the perfect fit for me both personally and professionally."

 

Before arriving at Arizona State in 2010, Barbee was the head wrestling coach at the U.S.  Military Academy from 2000-2010 and worked as an assistant coach at the University of Oklahoma from 1997-2000.

Barbee, who was a two-time academic All-American at Oklahoma State, replaces Ron Beaschler as the NCAA secretary-rules editor for wrestling.
