Update (8/29/13; scroll down for news/info. regarding former PSU coach Emik Kaidonov– Penn State has announced that longtime PSU assistant/associate head coach Wes Glon (pictured at right, with 2009 NCAA sabre champion Aleks Ochocki) will serve as interim head fencing coach for the 2013-14 season. The official release – which can be found HERE – ends by noting: "At the conclusion of the 2013-14 season, a national search for a head coach is planned." … Glon first joined the Penn State coaching staff in 1985 and has served as weapon coach for the program's sabre squads. Two of his fencers – Thomas Strzalkowski ('92, '93, '94) and Ochocki ('09, '12) – have won multiple NCAA men's sabre titles (Peter Cox was the '89 champ and Vitali Nazlimov in '91). Glon's 2013 sabre duo of Adrian Bak and Shaul Gordon both reached the NCAA semifinal/medal round, with Gordon (currently a PSU sophomore) finishing as the national runner-up. Bak's brother, Daniel Bak, was the 2010 NCAA runner-up while fencing for Penn State (he beat Ochocki in the '10 NCAA semifinals but lost to Daryl Homer of St. John's in the final; Ochocki had defeated Homer in the '09 NCAA final, with Homer going on to NCAA titles in both 2010 and '11 before earning a spot on the 2012 U.S. Olympic Team). … Glon's women's sabre fencers at Penn State have included three who claimed NCAA runner-up finishes (women's sabre became an NCAA event in 2000): converted foilist Sophie Hiss ('04), Caity Thompson ('07) and Monica Aksamit ('12).

BREAKING NEWS (8/24/13) – CollegeFencing360 has received direct confirmation, on Aug. 24, from Penn State that Emmanuil (Emik) Kaidonov (pictured at left) no longer is head coach of the PSU fencing program. The short, official statement reads as follows: "This is a confidential personnel matter and we therefore are not at liberty to discuss it. He [Kaidoniv] no longer is a University employee." CF360 also was informed that Penn State "will not have any additional comment at this time."

An official release/statement has yet to be posted on the Penn State athletics website, but word of this major news began leaking out online on Aug. 23. Kaidonov's teams combined to win 12 NCAA Championships during the men's/women's combined format, which began in 1990. PSU's final title under coach Emic came in 2010, with earlier NCAA titles in 1983 (women), '90, '91, '95-2000, '02, '07 and '09. Kaidonov's career as Penn State head coach spanned 31 seasons (1983-2013).

As of Aug. 24, there was no official word about the status of the Penn State assistant coaching staff (although all remain listed on the team roster page and/or athletics staff directory).

During the Kaidonov era, Penn State fencing developed a deep rivalry with Notre Dame, including the final years of legendary ND coach Mike DeCicco's career (DeCicco passed away earlier this year, on March 29). In the 24-year history of the NCAA combined format, Penn State and Notre Dame (4; '94, '03, '05, '11) have combined to win 16 team championships while also finishing as runner-up a combined 16 times (eight each). In eight different seasons from 1994-2009, Penn State and Notre Dame both finished in the top-2 spots at the NCAA Championship (PSU was runner-up to ND in '94, then ND finished second to PSU every year from 1996-2000).

Penn State fencers during the Kaidonov era combined to win 27 NCAA individual titles, including eight in women's foil, seven in men's sabre, six in women's epee and five in men's foil (only one in men's epee and none in women's saber, which made its NCAA debut in 2000). Former PSU women's foil standout Olga Kalinovskaya (NCAA champ in '93, '94, '95, '96) and men's sabre star Thomas Strzalkowski ('92, '93, '94) are two of only 14 fencers in NCAA history to win three or more NCAA individual titles. Four other PSU fencers from Kaidonov's teams have been two-time NCAA champions: men's foilist Non Panchan ('02, '03), recent men's sabre standout Aleks Ochocki ('09, '12), women's foilist Doris Willette ('07, '09) and women's epeeist Katarzyna Trzopek ('03, '06). 

Penn State's elite fencers over the past three decades have included several who never won an NCAA individual title, most recently men's foilist Miles-Chamley Watson – who reached at least the NCAA semifinals in all four years while competing with the Nittany Lions ('09, '10, '11, '13). Chamley-Watson was NCAA runner-up to Notre Dame's Ariel DeSemet in 2011, took a year of in 2012 to compete with Team USA at the Olympic Games in London, and most recently became the first U.S. men's fencer ever to win a World Championship individual title (Aug. 9, 2013, in Budapest).
