Moorman adds Goebel to round out staff

BRISTOL, Tenn. – King University head wrestling coach Jason Moorman rounded out his staff with the hire of Nick Goebel. He comes to King following a successful career at the University of Findlay.

"We are excited to have Nick join our coaching staff," Moorman said. "He had tremendous success as a student-athlete at Findlay, and brings all of that experience and knowledge to our program."

Last year Goebel was a graduate assistant strength and conditioning coach at Findlay. He worked primarily with the Oilers' soccer teams as well as the men's wrestling team.

While at Findlay, Goebel was a three-time All-America honoree, finishing third twice and fourth at the NCAA National Championships. Each of those years he won the region championship en route to All-America honors.

"I am very excited for this opportunity and I hope that I can learn a lot from Coach Moorman on what it takes to be head wrestling coach," Goebel said. "I would like to be a head coach someday and also be the strength and conditioning coach for the team."

During his sophomore season, Goebel posted a record of 35-10 before going 40-5 as a junior and 27-1 as a senior. Those 40 victories set a new Findlay record for wins in a season.

"During my time at Findlay I learned a lot from the coaches there that I will carry with me throughout my entire coaching career, both from wrestling and strength and conditioning," Goebel continued. "I hope during my time here I can help the wrestlers reach their goals and also help develop them into being better men and women. 

Goebel graduated from Findlay in 2017 with a degree in strength and conditioning and is currently working on his Master in Education from Findlay.
