His legend assured, Gable returned to Iowa before the terrorist massacre in Munich. Soon, officials at Iowa, where wrestling had long been in Iowa State's shadow, hatched a plan to lure him.

"It all happened under the cover of night," Haddy said. "Before Iowa State knew what hit them, we were calling a press conference to introduce Dan Gable as our new assistant."
The move triggered a seismic shift. Kurdelmeier stayed another four years. Gable took over in 1976 and the program was launched to another level.
As mentioned earlier-Gable waited 5 years for a head coaching position-he did not take his Mentor's job nor anyone else's-he worked out an agreement to leave ISU (where he was an unpaid asst.) to become an asst. coach until the Iowa coach retired-then he turned college wrestling upside down through shear dominance.
You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.
