IU wrestling coach Duane Goldman will be inducted into the Iowa Athletics 2009 Hall of Fame.

Goldman was a Big Ten champion, All-American selection and reached the NCAA championship match in every season of his four-year career with the Hawkeyes.

His banner year came as a senior in 1986 when he went 36-0 and ended the season with an NCAA championship at 190 pounds. Goldman set an Iowa record for winning percentage in that year.

Goldman amassed 132 total wins in his four years at Iowa, and captured a gold medal in the 1987 Pan-American championships after his college career.

As IU’s wrestling coach for the past 18 years, Goldman has tallied 216 wins, the most in IU history. Under Goldman’s watch, 23 IU wrestlers have earned All-American status, with three winning NCAA titles.
