    Wrestling: Bono says he applied for ISU job
    Dan McCool ? dmccool@dmreg.com ? April 20, 2009

    Iowa State athletic director Jamie Pollard hasn't spoken to reporters about his search for a replacement for wrestling coach Cael Sanderson.

    But The Des Moines Register confirmed Monday that former Cyclone star Chris Bono, who is now coaching at Tennessee-Chattanooga, is interested.

    Bono said he sent his resume to Ames on Monday.

    "I'm familiar with all of these juniors that are about to be seniors; I recruited them all," Bono said. "I'm passionate for Iowa State, I love Iowa State, I'm a motivator, it's home for me. It would be a smooth transition for me to get in there."


    Iowa State was the only team to qualify all 10 weights for the NCAA tournament, at which the Cyclones placed third.

    All 10 qualifiers - including NCAA champion Jake Varner and three other 2009 all-Americans - are eligible to be back in the Iowa State practice room next winter.

    Bono has been head coach at Tennessee-Chattanooga for three seasons after spending one season as an assistant. He was an NCAA champion in 1996 at Iowa State, and later was an assistant under Bobby Douglas for the Cyclones.

    Tennessee-Chattanooga athletic director Rick Hart told the Chattanooga Times Free Press that, as of Monday afternoon, he hadn't been asked by Pollard for permission to speak with Bono.

    Pollard did not return a message from the Register on Monday. Neither did other potential coaches.
    RIP Jacob Schlottke 1984-2011

    Aside from Gable and maybe Brands, Bono may be the last shot at keeping the talent in Ames.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    I would rather see McCarney back in Ames coaching wrestling before Bono.

    There is a height requirement for the job.

    The height requirement can be waived with a wrestle-off. And I'm sure Bono will be up to the task (wrestling or coaching).

    I think it's kind of dumb for wrestlers to be making fun of other wrestlers for their height. Maybe they should go after Alex Rodriguez or something.
