New Wrestling Coach at Northwest Tech


Northwest Tech Names New Head Wrestling Coach 
Goodland, KS. (01/06/2020) – Northwest Tech has recently welcomed a new Head
Wrestling Coach, Chris Guillot. He is coming to Goodland already having a fondness and
familiarity for the area, having served as the head coach for Goodland High School from 1999-2001. During his time at the district, he developed state championship and a top five team.
“I am excited to be back in Goodland, and I am ready to put together a competitive program that helps mold young men in a positive way,” said Guillot, “Goodland is a
supportive community, and I will strive to build a program they will be proud to stand behind.”
Guillot graduated with his degree in Physical Education from the University of Nebraska
at Kearney, where he wrestled and earned distinction as an NCAA Division II All-
American. Before his time at the university, he spent two years wrestling under well-
known area coach Steve Lampe while at Colby Community College, also earning honors
as an NJCAA Wrestling All-American. Throughout his years of coaching and competing,
he has built an extensive network of wrestling advocates, including former wrestling
champions such as Ramico Blackmon, Willie Gadson, and Nate Carr.
Beyond his wrestling achievements, Guillot has been a successful business owner,
husband, and father of two (son and daughter). His son, Hayes, returned to the Goodland
area last semester when he enrolled as a Precision Agriculture student at Northwest Tech.
Guillot’s return to the area fulfills one of his life’s goals; to coach college wrestling.
“After talking to my family about the opportunity, I’m thrilled to be able to come to
Northwest Tech to pursue my dream,” said Guillot. “I want to carry the torch and one day
pass it on, as did all the great coaches that took the time to help me accomplish my
dreams.”
Athletic Director Rory Kling was proud to bring Guillot in as the next wrestling coach.
“We have built a program over the last decade that proves we can be successful against
some of the best talent in the country," said Kling. "Guillot’s dedication to developing
student-athletes both on and off the mat will serve him well as the leader of our
Mavericks.”
