Nania comes to the Latrobe, Pennsylvania, school after three seasons as an assistant at Seton Hill University.

LATROBE, Pa. (May 24) – Saint Vincent College has announced the hiring of Dominick Nania as head coach of its newly relaunched men’s wrestling team.
A native of Hempfield Township, Nania arrives at Saint Vincent with more than six years of wrestling coaching experience at both the collegiate and high school levels, having most recently served as assistant coach for three seasons at Seton Hill University.
“Accepting the head coaching position at Saint Vincent College has been a dream come true for my family and me,” said Nania. “Everyone I have met throughout the interview process has been so welcoming and a pleasure to be around.
“Being able to start a new program as a student-athlete in college,” he continued, “and now coach at an amazing institution bringing back wrestling after almost five decades is something that means so much to me. This opportunity is so unique, as the President’s Office, the Athletic Department and myself are all on the same page. I think that is extremely rare and something that will make this program very successful in the classroom, on the mat and in the community.”
