Earlier this month, Ohio University wrestling coach Joel Greenlee made a flashy hire to his coaching staff. Greenlee welcomed two-time 141-pound All-American, three-time NCAA qualifier, and the 2013 141-pound Big Ten Champion for the Ohio State Buckeyes, Hunter Stieber, to the Ohio Bobcats coaching staff as an assistant coach. 

Before joining Greenlee and the 'Cats in Athens, Stieber, a Monroeville, Ohio native, spent five seasons as a volunteer assistant coach for the Oklahoma Sooners. During his time in Norman, the Sooners went 38-32, including the school's first conference championship in 19 years during the 2021 campaign. Stieber assisted in the development of NCAA qualifiers Dom Demas and Justin Thomas.

Earlier this week, The Open Mat caught up with both  coach Greenlee and coach Stieber for a two-part Q & A series about various topics from Hunter's hiring, his moving back to Ohio, the upcoming 2021-22 season, recruiting, name, image, and likeness, women's college wrestling, and much more. 

In Part I, TOM's phone call transcript with Ohio University head coach Joel Greenlee can be seen below. The interview was edited and condensed for clarity.
