MOORHEAD, Minn. — Minnesota State University Moorhead head wrestling coach Kris Nelson has announced that Griffin Osing has been named as an assistant coach on the Dragon coaching staff.
Osing spent the past two seasons as a graduate assistant on the Northern State coaching staff. He helped the Wolves to an undefeated season, an NSIC championship, and a fifth-place finish at the regional tournament.
“Griffin will be a tremendous help to our team, especially helping with the middle and upper weights,” Nelson said. “The last two years he helped the Northern State wrestling program while earning his master’s degree. Griffin helped them to an undefeated season this last year and a fifth-place finish in the NCAA Super Region V Tournament. I look forward to him helping with all aspects of the program and I am excited to have him join the Dragon wrestling program.”
Prior to coaching at Northern State, Osing was a four-year wrestler at Southwest Minnesota State. He was a national qualifier at 184 pounds in 2019. He was a three-time NSIC All-Academic selection and a three-time NWCA All-Academic pick.
A native of Blakesburg, Iowa, Osing graduated from SMSU in 2019 with a degree in physical education/teaching. He completed his Master’s of Science in sport performance and leadership from Northern State in 2021.
