UNI wrestling coach endowment

Posted: Updated:

A University of Northern Iowa alumna has created an endowment fund to support the salary of the UNI wrestling coach position.

Sandy Stevens, '62, created the Bear and Sandy Stevens Head Wrestling Coach endowment.

Doug Schwab is the first recipient of the funds.

"I would not have done this had I not believed in Doug Schwab and the kind of coach he is and the kind of coaches UNI has had and will continue to have," said Stevens. "He has the same high expectations and standards for his wrestlers off the mat as he does on the mat. He is an outstanding example of teaching life lessons but also of caring about the individual, whether that individual is an All-American or someone in the wrestling room working his tail off."

Stevens' late husband, "Bear," wrestled at UNI from 1959 to 1963.
