Jason Powell, the 125 pound wrestling champion for Nebraska back in 2004, is back with the NU program as the strength and conditioning coach. He’s spent the last three years at Maryland and Oregon.
Powell was one of NU’s top wrestlers in school history where he helped lead NU to its first top-five finish at the NCAA Championships since 1996. As a junior, he finished third in 2003 at nationals and as a sophomore, fifth.
Powell spent time as a volunteer coach and administrative assistant for the Huskers followed by stints as an assistant coach at the University of Oregon and the University of Maryland.
