Over the years we have seen the famous “Dan Gable Coaching Tree” which lists the coaches at all levels of our sport that wrestled for the legendary coach Dan Gable. With all of the transition we have had at the DI level, on the coaching front or the past few years, its time to look back and see which schools and head coaches have been able to produce the most DI head coaches. As you would guess Iowa currently has the most grads who are now head coaches, but there are others closing in.
