Nick Goebel has been named head women's wrestling coach at Tiffin University.
Goebel most recently coached at King University in Tennessee, joining King's staff in the fall of 2018 following a stint as a graduate assistant strength and conditioning coach at the University of Findlay. The King University women's wrestling team finished fifth at the Women's Collegiate Wrestling Association (WCWA) National Championships. The Tornado had eight All-Americans.
He was also a wrestler at Findlay, where he was a three-time All-America honoree, finishing third twice and fourth at the NCAA National Championships. Each of those years he won the region championship en route to All-America honors.
During his sophomore season, Goebel posted a record of 35-10 before going 40-5 as a junior and 27-1 as a senior. Those 40 victories set a new Findlay record for wins in a season.
Goebel graduated from Findlay in 2017 with a degree in strength and conditioning and is currently working on his Master in Education from Findlay.
"We are excited to have Nick join our Dragon family," said Athletic Director Lonny Allen. "With his background and experience as a competitor and coach, we think he will be a great fit as a mentor to our student athletes."
"I am very excited for this opportunity to be the Head Women's Wrestling Coach for Tiffin University," said Goebel. "I'm looking forward to building this program and to help these women reach their goals on and off the mat. Tiffin has a great wrestling program and I'm very blessed for this opportunity to be added to the staff. Northwest Ohio is my home and there is no better place for me to start my new career."
Tiffin University is a four-year, private school located in Tiffin, Ohio, about an hour southeast of Toledo. Tiffin has an enrollment of approximately 4,300 students. The school announced it would be launching a women's wrestling program in September 2017 to join the existing men's program. Tiffin intercollegiate sports compete in NCAA Division II.
