Troy Steiner hired as assistant coach at Oregon State



CORVALLIS, Ore. - Troy Steiner has been hired as an assistant coach for Oregon State's wrestling team, OSU head coach Jim Zalesky announced Friday. Steiner, who had been on Zalesky's coaching staff for the past two seasons at Iowa, previously worked at Oregon State as an assistant to head coach Joe Wells during the 1995-96 season.

"Troy was out here for a year with Joe Wells and knows the area and a lot of the people in the area," Zalesky said. "And he brings a great work ethic to the table, which is very important to me. He's been successful as a wrestler in high school and in college and he's wrestled internationally. Troy has wrestled at all the levels and now he's coached at all levels - colleges, clubs, kids. He brings a lot of experience at all levels into our program."

Prior to working with Zalesky at Iowa, Steiner owned and operated the ADVANCE School of Wrestling in Madison, Wis., for four years. He also served as an assistant coach at Wisconsin from 1997-2001 and Minnesota in 1996-97. During his career, Steiner has coached 22 All-Americans, 10 Big Ten champions, six NCAA champions and one junior FILA World Freestyle champion.

Steiner was a four-time all-American at Iowa from 1990-93 and an NCAA champion in 1992. He won three Big Ten titles at Iowa, compiling a 148-13 career record at 134 and 142 pounds. He and his twin brother, Terry, were part of three national and four Big Ten championship teams.

Steiner shares Iowa's school record for best season winning percentage for the 42-0 record he compiled during his junior season. He also ranks third in career wins (148) and sixth in season wins (42) in school history.

In post-collegiate competition, Steiner was a nine-time U.S. National team member, winning the 1992 World Cup and the 1996 Pan-American Games titles. He placed third at the U.S. Olympic Trials in 1992 and 1996, and fifth in 2000. A native of Bismarck, N.D., Steiner was inducted into the North Dakota Hall of Fame in 1998.

Steiner received his bachelor's degree in Social Work from Iowa in 1993 and his master's degree in Kinesiology with a sports management emphasis from Minnesota in 1998. He and his wife Shawn have two children, Spencer and Abbigail.
