Preparing gymnasts at Iowa under head men’s coach Tom Dunn for 14 years has paid off for Dmitri Trouch, and he is ready to move on to the next level.

Trouch is one step closer to becoming a collegiate head coach after Dunn promoted him from an assistant to associate head coach.

The promotion will give him a more administrative role with the Hawkeyes.

“Primarily, I want to get him ready to be a head coach because that is what he wants to do,” Dunn said. “I’m going to be helping him get a handle on some of the things I do on the administrative side.”

Trouch will be more involved with recruiting, scheduling, and keeping track of the daily operations of the NCAA and its requirements.

Originally from Russia, Trouch helped the Russian team win a gold medal in the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta.

Trouch came to Iowa that same year to replace Kurt Golder, who accepted the head-coach job at Michigan.
