Hawkeye Wrestling: Zadick Promoted

Former Hawkeye wrestler Mike Zadick has been promoted to interim assistant coach for the University of Iowa wrestling program. The announcement was made today by Head Coach Tom Brands.

Zadick is no stranger to the Hawkeye wrestling team, serving on staff for seven seasons in various capacities and earning three all-America honors at Iowa. He recently earned a spot on the 2010 U.S. Men's Freestyle World Championships team with his win at last weekend's U.S. World Team Trials in Council Bluffs

                "I look forward to blowing the doors off this position in terms of developing our student-athletes to the highest level on and off the mat," said Zadick. "I want to represent this staff, this program and the University of Iowa with the highest of standards."

A 2008 Olympian, Zadick served as Iowa's volunteer assistant coach for four seasons (2004-06, 2009-10) and as the team's strength training coach for three seasons (2006-08). He won the 2008 U.S. Freestyle Olympic Team Trials at 132 pounds (60 kg), and earned a spot in the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China.
