Greater Atlanta Christian has announced the hiring of Cliff Ramos, perhaps the greateest wrestling coach in state history.
Ramos recently retired at Collins Hill after winning nine state championships in 16 years, along with the last three Class AAAAA tournaments in both traditional and dual championships. Collins Hill also finished this season with the nation’s No. 9 ranking, the highest ever for a Georgia team.
At GAC, Ramos will serve as the private school’s director of wrestling, working closely with head coach Jeff Harsh.
“We were looking for a dreamer, a director, a leader who could help us grow our program,” GAC athletics director Tim Vick said. “Cliff has that kind of vision and the spiritual focus that will advance GAC’s mission of touching lives for Christ.”
Collins Hill promoted assistant Josh Stephen to replace Ramos.
