Coe College and John Oostendorp has added a big name from NAIA ranks to their coaching staff as Grant Henderson announced on his personal Instagram account that he will be joining the coaching staff. A native of Alburnett, Iowa Henderson will be returning closer to home after wrapping up his career as a national champion for Grand View this past winter. Henderson also announced that he will take on a role with the Eastern Iowa Wrestling Club as head Director.

From Henderson’s Instagram post:
“I’m excited to announce I have accepted a full time coaching position with Coe College. I will have the role of Head Director for the Eastern Iowa Wrestling Club and assistant coach for Coe. I want to thank everyone at Grand View and the people that have supported me in this process from the bottom of my heart. I will treasure the friendships and memories Des Moines and GV has given me. I’m not far so I’ll still visit all the time! Keep doing more! I also can’t thank my coaches that have helped me get to where I am; I have been truly blessed to have amazing mentors and friendships with all of my coaches.”

The Kohawks are led by head coach John Oostendorp and assistant coaches Jimmy Gotto, Eric Casey, Ted Drees, and Mason Cook. The EIWC is headed by Jim Kelly and recently added former Iowa All-American Brandon Sorensen as head coach.
