Itasca Community College coach Joseph Umlauf has announced that Morgen Moreno has been named as an assistant coach for the Vikings.
Coach Moreno is a graduate from Rochester Community & Technical College where he was an All-American at 197 pounds in 2019. Moreno graduated from Hayfield in 2018 where he was a state placewinner. Moreno will direct upper-weight operations, social media/marketing operations, program development, and student-athlete academic support.
“Coach Moreno brings such great energy to the team but also is all-hands-on-deck for all the behind-the-scenes things that make a team successful,” said Coach Umlauf. “He has the passion and desire to help all student-athletes here at ICC be as successful as possible. He not only wrestles with our upper weights giving them the looks of what it takes to be successful at the college level, but will direct upper-weight operations, direct academic support, social media, marketing, program development, and other facets of the Itasca Wrestling Program. At the end of the day, he fully embodies the philosophy of our program looking to help each individual be as successful as possible on and off the mat. He wants to help us continue to create champions of life.”
Itasca opens their competition schedule on November 6th at the Cobber Open in Moorhead.
