Angel Escobedo - Head Wrestling Coach, Indiana University


One of the most successful wrestlers in Indiana University history, Angel Escobedo became the eighth head coach in program history on April 6, 2018.

Escobedo assumed the reins of the program after spending one year as IU’s associate head coach along with three years on the Iowa State staff.

“We are very excited about the future of Indiana Wrestling under Angel’sleadership,” IU Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Fred Glass said. “As a wrestler, he excelled at the high school, collegiate and international levels. As a coach, he has mentored All-Americans and NCAA qualifiers. With a new state-of-the-art $17 million facility set to open, Angel is the right person to lead the program into this new, exciting era.”

A native of Gary, Ind., Escobedo was a dominant wrestler for the Hoosiers from 2007-10. As a sophomore, he won the 2008 NCAA title at 125 pounds, and he captured Big Ten titles in the weight class three times (2008-10). He’s the program’s only four-time All-American, and his 137 career wins (second) and 42 pins (third) rank among the best in IU history.

After wrapping up his IU career in 2010, Escobedo competed internationally and was a member of Team USA. Among his top performances was a fifth-place finish at the 2013 World Championships in Budapest, Hungary, and a second-place finish at the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto.

While training full-time for the international circuit, he spent three years on Iowa State’s coaching staff from 2015-17, where he helped develop a handful of the Cyclones’ lightweight wrestlers into national contenders. Among his most notable wrestlers was two-time All-American and four-time NCAA qualifier Earl Hall.

He plans to make Indiana a force in the nation’s premier college wrestling conference, the Big Ten.

Mike Dixon - Associate Head Wrestling Coach, Indiana University


Former Indiana University standout wrestler Mike Dixon was named Indiana's associate head coach on June 4, 2018.

"I'm excited to bring Mike Dixon on staff, as he was an instrumental part of the rise of Old Dominion Wrestling and brought in many top-25 recruiting classes,” Escobedo said. “As an alumnus, his passion and commitment to see Indiana Wrestling at the top is unwavering. I know he is excited to have a big impact on taking this program to new heights. My staff and I are eager to foster success in this program.”

Dixon enters the IU wrestling room with over a decade of veteran leadership and experience with raising a wrestling program to national prominence. In 13 years as an assistant and associate head coach at Old Dominion, Dixon guided his wrestlers to nine NCAA All-American honors and 18 individual conference championships.

In over a decade with Old Dominion, Dixon helped head coach Steve Martin find success on the mat and in the classroom while putting the Monarchs on the map of the wrestling landscape. In the 2007-08 season, Dixon’s first with the Monarchs, Old Dominion earned their first top-20 ranking in program history with six NCAA Championships qualifiers, then a schoolrecord.

The next year, Old Dominion captured a top-20 NCAA Championships while Ryan Williams (141 lbs.) became the program’s first NCAA finalist in 15 years.

Isaac Jordan - Assistant Wrestling Coach, Indiana University


Four-time All-American and two-time Big Ten champion Isaac Jordan joined the Hoosiers' coaching staff in the summer of 2018, bringing another coach with a championship pedigree into the fold.

"I am excited to have Isaac join the program," Escobedo said. "When I was looking for an assistant coach, I wanted a high level wrestler with outstanding integrity and character. Isaac brings all those attributes to the program and will be a great mentor for our athletes to look up to."

Prior to becoming the newest assistant coach to join Escobedo's room, Jordan served as an assistant at Oklahoma State during the 2017-18 season. The Cowboys, with Jordan's assistance, guided four wrestlers to the All-America podium last season including Chandler Rogers (8th at 165 lbs.) and Jacobe Smith (8th at 174 lbs.).

During his four varsity seasons at the University of Wisconsin, Jordan was among the best at his weight. Jordan posted a 115-17 career record in the Badger singlet with an outstanding 29-1 mark on his way to a runner-up finish in the 2016 NCAA Championships. He became the fifth four-time All-American in Wisconsin's history and his winning percentage (.871) ranks sixth in the program's record books. Jordan earned a fourth-place NCAA finish his senior year and took seventh-place in 2014 (157 lbs.) and 2015 (165 lbs.).

Jordan's appointment marks a return of one of the Big Ten's best grapplers of this decade. He won back-to-back Big Ten Championships at 165 lbs. in 2015 and 2016 and posted a remarkable 33-1 career record in conference dual meets. Jordan went undefeated in Big Ten duals for the first three varsity seasons of his career. Throughout his four varsity seasons on the mat, Jordan never left the top-10 of the national rankings, climbing as high as No. 2 in all four years. He posted a 41-13 career record against ranked opponents.
