The Brothers Sinnott -- Christian and Brandon -- are now assistant wrestling coaches at Davidson College, the North Carolina-based school announced Friday.

The twins -- both former NCAA All-American wrestlers at Central Michigan -- replace former assistant Tim Stroud, who is now Davidson’s Director of Wrestling Operations.

Both Christian and Brandon Sinnott bring a wealth of wrestling and coaching experience to the NCAA Division I mat program based outside Charlotte.

Christian Sinnott was a 2008 NCAA All-American and two-time Mid-American Conference champ for Central Michigan University at 184 pounds. He has served as a graduate assistant for his college alma mater, as well as an assistant coach at Appalachian State. For the past two seasons, Christian has been a private coach for 2013 High School National Champion Parker Vonegidy. Under Sinnott's tutelage, Vonegidy was also the 2011 Fargo National runner-up and three-time North Carolina State Champion for Piedmont High School.

Brandon Sinnott was a two-time NCAA All-American (2007, 2008) and three-time MAC champ for the CMU Chippewas at 174 pounds. Brandon launched his coaching career at Central Michigan as a graduate assistant, then joined the staff at University of Maryland before volunteering his time as a trainer for high school wrestlers and mixed martial arts fighters while pursuing a career in MMA.

In addition to their involvement in wrestling, both Christian and Brandon serve as patrol officers for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.

Davidson College is a private liberal arts college that is considered to be among the highest ranked, most academically demanding colleges in the U.S. Founded in 1837, it has an enrollment of approximately 1800 students. The Wildcat wrestling program competes in the Southern Conference in NCAA Division I.
