A pair of Michigan natives have been added to the coaching staff at Old Dominion as Steve Martin announced the hiring of Kevin Beasley and Steve Bleise this afternoon.  Beazley will be the second assistant on staff, while Bleise will serve as a volunteer assistant coach.  

Both one-time Michigan state champions, Beazley and Bleise had tremendous collegiate careers.  Beazley began his career with the ODU monarchs, where he was an All-American before spending his final year in Ann Arbor.  Bleise qualified for NCAA's all four years of his career - twice with NIU and twice with Minnesota.  

One Michigander is currently on the roster for the Monarchs - Ali Wahab of Dearborn Hts. Crestwood - who has started the past two seasons at heavyweight and was 21-12 last season.
