Joe Dubuque

Associate Head Coach

Princeton University

Joe Dubuque, former two-time NCAA champion and New Jersey native, has proven to be an outstanding coach in the wrestling world. He was promoted to associate head coach of Princeton wrestling before the 2017-18 season and has assisted head coach Chris Ayres in reviving Princeton wrestling in recent years. Princeton has had many successes under Dubuque’s leadership, including its first Ivy League title in 2020 and the program’s first NCAA champion since 1951 in 2023.

Dubuque worked closely with Matthew Kolodzik, who became a three-time All-American and three-time EIWA champion under his guidance. He was also instrumental in sending Brett Harner to the All-America podium in 2016, ending a 13-year drought without one. Dubuque’s success as a coach is not surprising given his impressive wrestling career, which included two NCAA championships and a record of 57-6 during his time at Indiana.

Overall, Joe Dubuque has played a significant role in revitalizing Princeton wrestling and helping the program achieve numerous historic milestones.

We have attended Coach Keel's camps for at least 4 years in a row. Its that good and we learn new things each time. Matt is great with kids, is an excellent communicator, and has a great sense of humor.

John Sykes

My son attended one of your camps...perhaps the most significant wrestling camp he has attended. He developed not only great leg riding ability, but great balance as well; he is like a "tick" on top, kids simply can't reverse him or get him out of legs. He now dominates kids that used to beat him. He is simply a much better wrestler.

Paul Dubois

The kids really liked the camp and certainly learned a different style than what were use to wrestling
