Jackson back as assistant coach at Princeton

PRINCETON, N.J. -- Princeton announced that Nate Jackson, World Cup champion and two-time U.S. national tam member, will be welcomed back to the coaching staff following an Olympic Games run.

Following a stellar career at Indiana University where he achieved NCAA All American honors twice, Nate and his family traveled across the country in 2017 to help Tiger wrestling.

Nate Jackson, a two-time All-American who won more than 100 career matches for Indiana University, will enter his sixth season as an assistant coach with the Princeton wrestling team during the 2022-23 academic year.

"I am excited to learn more about our Princeton wrestlers and help mold them into wrestling experts; pillars of the community," said Jackson.

"Having Nate back as a full time coach is amazing for the program," said head coach Joe Dubuque. "Nate is going to hit the ground running as he's been ingrained in our culture for 7 years now. I'm excited about the areas that Nate can impact especially continuing to build the community around our program. The upper weights are going to see an immediate impact with Coach Jackson's focus now turned to them full time."
