Coach Info

Jim Kraeszig – Head Wrestling Coach

Jim Kraeszig, a 1985 graduate of Saint Xavier High School, is entering 2017-2018 as his 15th season as the Head Wrestling Coach. While a student at St. X, Jim earned three varsity letters in wrestling and placed in the state tournament in both his junior and senior years. Jim, who currently teaches Science at Saint Xavier, earned his degree in business with a minor in economics from Bellarmine in 1989 and a master’s in teaching in biology/science from Indiana University Southeast in 2006. Jim has twice received the Saint Xavier Teacher of the Year Award and in 2011 earned the Coach Joe Maupin Award for outstanding teaching and coaching. In 2001 he was selected Kentucky Wrestling Coach of the Year.

Although Coach Kraeszig has coached three State Championship teams, one as an assistant coach in 1998 and two as a head coach in 2001 and 2013, he credits his two top assistants for a great deal of his success. Coach Efren Quirino, who is also the Head Coach of River City Wrestling of Louisville, and Coach Isaac Knable, who was a four-time undefeated Kentucky State Champion, have helped establish the Tigers as one of the premier programs in the state of Kentucky.

Jim’s philosophy is to provide the athletes with a safe, healthy, and enjoyable environment in which to compete. The Saint Xavier Wrestling Program strives to bring discipline to young men and glory to God through the sport of wrestling.

Jim and his wife, Kimberly, are the proud parents of four boys: Konner, Jimmy, Hunter, and Kody.
