CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) - Three finalists for the University of Northern Iowa head wrestling coach position will visit Cedar Falls this week.

Chris Bono, Pat Popolizio and Doug Schwab will interview at UNI.

"The three finalists each bring a unique set of experiences and background." Dannen said. "I was very pleased with the depth of the pool and the quality of the finalists. We are eager to have the candidates visit campus, meet our student-athletes and present their vision for the future of Panther wrestling."

Bono, who will interview on Thursday, is an assistant coach at Iowa State University.

Popolizio, who will interview on Friday, is the head coach at Binghamton University, where he has served in that capacity since 2006.

Schwab, who will interview on Tuesday, is currently an assistant coach for three-time defending NCAA champion Iowa Hawkeyes.

After 10 seasons at the helm, former wrestling coach Brad Penrith was let go last month.
