Ben Berhow recently completed his first season as Iowa's volunteer assistant coach.

Berhow works primarily with the heavier weights, and in his first season in the corner, the Hawkeyes crowned six All-Americans, including 197-pound Nathan Burak and 285-pound Bobby Telford. The Hawkeyes shared the Big Ten dual meet title and crowned one Big Ten and one NCAA champion last season.

Prior to joining the Hawkeye staff, Berhow spent two years as an administrative assistant at the University of Minnesota.

As a member of the Gophers' staff from 2011-13, Minnesota crowned four Big Ten and two NCAA individual champions, including two-time NCAA heavyweight champion Tony Nelson.

Berhow joined Minnesota's staff following a four-year career with the Gophers that included 78 wins and three national tournament appearances from 2007-10. He received the Minnesota Integrity Award his senior season and was honored with the Verne Gagne Scholarship/Leadership Award as a junior. He earned the Chris Berglin Most Improved Wrestler award after posting an 8-0 Big Ten record as a sophomore.

A native of Hayward, Minn., Berhow won the 2006 Minnesota state championship while attending Albert Lea High School. He graduated from the University of Minnesota in 2011.
