CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- Sources have confirmed to KWWL that former Iowa national champion Doug Schwab will be named the next head wrestling coach at UNI.  A press conference has been scheduled for noon on Thursday to make the formal introduction.

Schwab, a former Olympian, has been an assistant for the Hawkeyes the past 4 seasons.  During that time, Iowa won 3 national and 3 Big Ten championships.

As a collegiate competitor, Schwab was a 3 time All-American from 1998-2001.  The Osage native won a national title at 141 pounds in 1999.

Schwab will replace Brad Penrith, who was dismissed as the Panthers' head man in early April.
