Dan Dennis to begin as HWC Coach

We are excited to announce that Dan Dennis will be returning an HWC Coach!

“Dan Dennis ranks high as a coach. He ranks high as a Hawkeye. And he ranks high in our locker room.  He is the best choice for a lot of reasons starting with his popularity among our HWC athletes. There is always excitement with a new hire and there is a little more pizazz with this one.  Dan Dennis is coming back to Iowa and we are fired up.” -Coach Tom Brands

“To say I am excited to return to Iowa City and train with the best men and women in the world would be an understatement. The Hawkeye Wrestling Club gave me opportunities I never would have otherwise experienced, and that support is stronger today than it has ever been. The men and women in the room are incredible. I know how they operate professionally, and I can’t wait to get to know them personally. I can tell you right now we are all lock-step with what is next. The Olympics are 15 months away and we will be ready to go.”
