Assistant coach named to wrestling team

NDSU head wrestling coach Roger Kish has announced that former University of Iowa NCAA champion Derek St. John will join the staff as an assistant coach.

St. John, the 2013 NCAA champion at 157 pounds, became the 18th four-time All-American in Iowa history in 2014.

“We are thrilled to be able to add a guy of Derek’s caliber and experience to our program at North Dakota State,” Kish said. “His values, philosophy and vision are right in line with what we expect at NDSU. He’s proven himself as one of the nation’s elite competitors, and his achievements at the Big Ten and NCAA levels speak for themselves.”

The Parnell, Iowa, native was a redshirt on the Iowa team that won the NCAA team title in 2010. He graduated from Iowa in May 2014 with a degree in business studies.

“I’m excited to join the North Dakota State wrestling program and to be a part of Coach Kish’s staff,” St. John said. “I look forward to building on the tradition and the success that have already been established here, and I know we will work hard to take it to the next level.”

NDSU is recognized as one of the nation's top 108 public and private universities by the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education.
