Oklahoma State promoted Chris Perry to a full-time assistant coach Wednesday after two years as a volunteer assistant.
Perry also served two years as coach of Cowboys Wrestling Club. During his time as a volunteer assistant, Perry has helped Dean Heil win back-to-back national titles at 141 pounds and Alex Dieringer claim his third NCAA title in 2016 at 165 pounds along with the Dan Hodge Trophy.
Perry won back-to-back NCAA titles at 174 pounds under head coach John Smith in 2013 and 2014. The Stillwater native was 28-4 with four Big 12 championships in his Cowboy career. He was also named the 2014 Big 12 tournament’s Most Outstanding Wrestler.
The Cowboys also hired Isaac Jordan as an volunteer assistant coach. At Wisconsin, Jordan was a 2016 NCAA finalist, four-time All-American and two-time Big 10 champion.
Additionally, former OSU wrestler Tyler Caldwell will take over as recruiting coordinator. Caldwell previously served as a volunteer coach at West Virginia for the 2015-16 season. After seeing the light and transferring from Oklahoma to OSU, Caldwell finished his career as a two-time NCAA finalist and four-time All-American.
