Steve Mocco?  Maybe I've been under a rock, but I haven't seen or heard anything about him in quite a while.

Was fighting some MMA.  Took a loss back in February, not sure if he's still training or not.
Since Jammen has told me twice to change my signature, I can only assume his wrestling knowledge is no longer something I can count on along with pizza and beer.

He had been training down at ATT in Florida last I heard, he was helping train my buddy's little brother on the side. I don't think he is at Top Team anymore though

Gary Albright died last year.  He holds the Husker season record for pins with 34.

Pete Yozzo has been helping coach at the high school level, his son Tommy placed at the CA state tournament last year, and I believe will be wrestling for Virginia this year.

Ardeshir Asgari - He was assistant and then head coach at Cal State Fullerton in the mid 1990s. I heard that after a lawsuit payout following an LA sheriff interaction Ardeshir moved to Nicaragua. He originally defected to the US with Abedi (http://iran-times.com/coach-recalls-his-defection-saga/), a very interesting read.

I remember Asgari and Abedi walking into the gym at SF State for the California Collegiate Open shortly after they defected from Iran. I wrestled Asgari, it was right after he arrived at Cal State Bakersfield. Despite not speaking much (any?) English, and him being so new to folk style that his coaches were showing him the referees position before our match, he was very slick. I almost beat him on conditioning, the ref ended the match in my favor on successive stalling calls and a dq, but after TJ Kerr protested they found that he deserved one more call. We had to come back after about 35 min and wrestle the last 45 seconds of the match, which he won.

Caruso and Lieberman are both worth around $100 million / each.  Caruso through insurance, Lieberman through advertising.  Caruso , a huge supporter or Lehigh wrestling, has had a wonderful life.  Owns race horses , a few planes and is still in great shape.  Attends virtually all Lehigh dual meets.

Burley is an attorney in New Jersey.
We are the storm.
