With the addition of this new team, Head Wrestling Coach Eric Keller will be promoted to director of wrestling, allowing him to oversee both programs while retaining his coaching duties with the men’s team. The search for the head women’s wrestling coach will begin immediately. Wartburg is the only NCAA Division III school in Iowa that now offers a women’s wrestling program.
