After 15 years as the Menomonee Falls High School varsity wrestling coach, Jim McMahon has decided to step down.

“It’s something I thought about for a while,” McMahon said. “After a season, you’re kind of burnt out. Hopefully, you get that drive back to get back into the swing of things and it just was a longer process this year. It’s time for me to try something else.”

Since 2013, Falls has advanced to the WIAA state team tournament four times. Before McMahon, MFHS had never qualified for team state.

“Wrestling has been a big part of my life for a long time,” McMahon said. “I really enjoy being a teacher and a coach at Menomonee Falls High School. It was a pretty special relationship that you get with kids and parents. That was really enjoyable. It was challenging at times, but enjoyable.”
