TRAVIS PAULSON TO COACH CYCLONES IN 2017 TOURNEY ACTION
AMES, Iowa – Iowa State assistant wrestling coach Travis Paulson will coach the Cyclones for the remainder of the 2016-17 season. The move takes effect immediately.
Coach Kevin Jackson approached Director of Athletics Jamie Pollard this week to express his desire to not coach the team in the postseason.
The move gives Paulson, who is in his sixth season at ISU, an opportunity to lead the Cyclones at the Big 12 and NCAA Championships.
Travis Paulson, his brother Trent and Angel Escobedo will serve as the Cyclones coaching staff for the rest of the year.
