Inductee: Gary Kurdelmeier

Although his head coaching career at the University of Iowa was brief, Gary Kurdelmeier’s vision for the program would have a last effect. Kurdelmeier coached the Hawkeyes for four seasons (1973-1976), leading Iowa to two NCAA team titles. He was also an NCAA champion for the Hawkeyes in 1958 at 177 pounds.
