As he hinted last week on Takedown Radio, Dom Bradley has officially accepted an offer to continue training with the University of Nebraska. Bradley made the announcement on his personal Twitter account:

While it’s clear the coaching opening drew Bradley’s eye to Nebraska, the caliber of wrestlers the University has produced recently also presented an attractive opportunity for the heavyweight.
“I called coach (Mark) Manning and I saw they had an opening on the volunteer position,” Bradley said in his interview with Takedown, “I really hope that kind of works out too. Being around people like James Green and Jordan Burroughs, and coach Bryan Snyder, all those people they have there. How can you not get better?”
Bradley was a two-time NCAA All-American for the University of Missouri and has made back-to-back U.S. National Teams at 125 kg, taking third and second respectively at the U.S. Trials. Prior to joining Nebraska Bradley had been a member of the Cyclone Wrestling Club training under former U.S. National Team coach, Kevin Jackson. He also told Takedown that he was entertaining offers from Iowa, Northwestern, North Dakota State, Michigan, and South Dakota State.
