The architect of a wrestling dynasty is departing his job.

Robbie Dauterive has resigned as head wrestling coach at Brother Martin effective at the end of the current school year by mutual agreement with the school.

Dauterive, who wrestled at Brother Martin, graduating in 1984, won 10 state champions as head coach covering two different stints with the Crusaders. That includes winning seven of the last eight Division I titles overall including the most recent championship earlier this month in Bossier City.

The search for a replacement has begun.

“I knew there was going to be a next chapter coming in my life at some point and I am looking forward to moving on,” Dauterive said. “I’ve accomplished everything at Brother Martin that I came here to accomplish. The Brother Martin program has been dear to my heart for a long time. It is great that in both of my stints, I am leaving the program on top. What I will miss most is the daily interaction with the kids and coaches. I wish the wrestling program nothing but great success moving forward and I was happy to be part of it.”

Brother Martin principal Ryan Gallagher issued a brief statement confirming the move Wednesday afternoon:

“As a school policy, we do not comment on personnel. We wish Robbie Dauterive the best of luck in his future endeavors. Our search has begun for our next wrestling coach to lead our young men at Brother Martin High School and in the Crusader Wrestling program.”
