Nate Wolf Resigns From Head Track And Field And Cross Country Position At Northwestern

Head track and field and cross country coach Nate Wolf has resigned from his position at Northwestern to become the first ever track and cross country coach at Southwest Minnesota State University in Marshall, Minn. Wolf has been the head coach of the track and field program for the last eight years and the head of the cross country program for one year after serving as the assistant for seven years.

During his tenure, Wolf led Northwestern athletes to 38 NAIA All American performances, including a school record number of 15 this past season, eight during the indoor season and seven for outdoor. Wolf helped guide Matt Huseman (Alta, Iowa) to the 2012 NAIA Indoor National Championship in the high jump, the fourth national championship performance in the program’s history.

“Nate has done an outstanding job for the past eight years and we are deeply saddened to see Nate leave Northwestern,” commented Northwestern Athletic Director Barry Brandt. “We are excited for him, however, as he will be facing the challenges of starting a new program at Southwest Minnesota State.”

Wolf was named GPAC Indoor Coach of the Year in 2007 and led the Red Raiders to a ninth place finish at the NAIA Indoor Championship, the best ever finish for the program. In addition, 75 athletes have earned NAIA Scholar Athlete honors and Northwestern was recognized as a scholar team for the last five years.

“I am very grateful for the opportunity to work the last nine years at Northwestern, and specifically, the last eight years with the track and field and cross country programs,” commented Wolf. “I would like to thank coach Brandt and coach Dale Thompson for their positive influence on me as both an athlete and as a coach. I would also like to thank the athletes that I have worked with during my time at Northwestern. They have made my experience at Northwestern a special one full of rich experiences and memories, and I will miss them.”
