    Cael Sanderson leaving Iowa State for Penn State
    By K.J. Pilcher

    A source associated with the Iowa State wrestling program has confirmed that Cael Sanderson is leaving Iowa State University and will be named the head coach at Penn State University to replace the recently resigned Troy Sunderland.

    The source said an Iowa State team meeting was scheduled for 3 p.m. today.

    The Center Daily Times, which covers Penn State, had reported in its Friday edition that Sanderson was at Penn State interviewing for job.

    Rumors and Internet comments had been flying about the situation since Thursday.

    Sunderland resigned this month after 11 years as head coach. Penn State spokesman Pat Donghia said Thursday the university had no comment on the search process.

    Sanderson, an Iowa State alumnus, recently completed his third season coaching the Cyclones. Iowa State finished third behind Iowa and Ohio State during last month’s NCAA Championships. The Cyclones also won the Big 12 Tournament title and finished 15-3 in dual meets.

    Sanderson went 159-0 during his college career at Iowa State. He captured his fourth NCAA title in 2002 and claimed a gold medal two years later at the Athens Olympics. Sanderson replaced Bobby Douglas as the Cylcones’ head coach in 2006.

    Sanderson has deep ties to Iowa State. His older brother, Cody, is the school’s associate head coach, while his younger brother, Cyler, wrestles for the Cyclones.

    Sanderson received a base salary of $132,500 during the 2008 fiscal year, according to Iowa public records.

    Sanderson, 29, is one of multiple high-profile coaches who have been in contact with Penn State. According to multiple sources, the search committee has interviewed more than a half-dozen coaches.
    RIP Jacob Schlottke; KR1963 and rpayton

    It'll be interesting to see what Cael does in terms of assisstants.

    Whether he keeps any of Sunderland's guys on (Perry) or if he just brings his ISU staff with him.

    I imagine that he'll bring as many as he can with him but I can't imagine that he won't keep at least some of the staff that is there now.

    yeah..sorry. I'm not a PSU dude or anything, just like the shake ups and will make everything more interesting.

    I'm sure ISU will land another young stud coach and will continue to do well. To stir the pot even more, it would be cool for ISU to knock off PSU at National duals next year!!

    The fab five (Fanthorpe, Gallick, Mueller, Sanderson, and Varner), and that unknown guy from NJ (Zabriskie) are all entering their senior year. In terms of graduation, it wouldn't make much sense for any of them to leave. Otherwise, I'd think that anyone even thinking about such a move would first want to see who's coming in.

    Being a wrestling fan is way more exciting than following football or basketball, where we would have likely heard such news first (and last, and ad nauseous) on ESPN, and an internet forum would have filled up instantly with 500 posts (what happened with the Cutler affair in Denver the day he left).
