Former University at Buffalo wrestling coach Ed Michael has been inducted to the National Wrestling Hall of Fame, the school announced.

Michael, an Ithaca-native and the all-time winningest coach in UB history, was honored with a lifetime service to wrestling award. The award is given annually to coaches and contributors who have given lifetime service in their communities and to the young people they have coached, taught, motivated and inspired.

During his 21 seasons at UB, Michael had a career record of 213-106-3. In addition, his 1973-74 team finished with a school-best 22-1 record. The Bulls' 1977-78 NCAA Division III National Championship is the only NCAA Championship for UB in any sport.
