Jackson had this to say about his new assistants:

"Both Chris and Yero have been world-class wrestlers who have had a successful run of 10 years of coaching," Jackson said. "Both understand exactly what it takes to be an NCAA champion and a successful international competitor and will guide our wrestlers to their goals. Yero will work with our lighter weights, Chris with the middle weights and I will work considerably with the upper weights. They both have administrative experience as NCAA coaches and that will be of great assistance to me as well."

 

Chris Bono, on returning to Ames:

"First and foremost, I am coming back to the school I love, my alma mater," Bono said. "I know Kevin well, have worked with him in the past and believe in his vision for Iowa State wrestling."

Yero Washington, on joining Jackson's staff:

"The primary reason I’m headed to Iowa State is Kevin Jackson," Washington said. "Kevin is an extraordinary leader.  The fact that Iowa State is a collegiate wrestling powerhouse was also a factor in my decision."

Also on the staff as a voulnteer assistant is former Cyclone Nate Gallick.
