Ryan Morningstar joined the Hawkeye staff in 2012 after serving as an assistant coach at Wisconsin in 2011-12.

Since joining the Hawkeye staff, Morningstar has helped lead Iowa to three Big Ten regular season dual meet titles and a conference tournament title. The Hawkeyes have earned 16 All-America honors over the past three seasons and crowned a pair of NCAA champions.

Morningstar began his career in coaching following a collegiate career that included four NCAA appearances (2007-10) as a Hawkeye. He earned All-America honors in 2009 and 2010, and was a member of three NCAA championship teams (2008-10).

Morningstar placed third at the NCAA championships and was a Big Ten runner-up at 165 pounds in 2009. He suffered a knee injury during his senior season (2010) but still went on to place seventh at the NCAAs and fourth at the Big Ten championships. That same year he was named Iowa's Big Ten Sportsmanship Award winner and won the Mike McGivern Award, which is given annually to the team's most courageous wrestler.

A four-year letterwinner from 2007-10, Morningstar owns a career record of 110-40. He was a member of the Hawkeye Wrestling Club in 2010-11 and qualified to compete in the 2012 U.S. Olympic Team Trials at 163 pounds (74 kg).

The Lisbon, Iowa, native graduated from Iowa in 2009 with a bachelor's degree in health and sports studies.
