Iowa adds two assistants to replace departures

And so the coaching carousel goes.

Iowa announced the additions of two coaches on Thursday following the departures of defensive backs coach Darrell Wilson, who left for Rutgers earlier this week, and running backs coach Lester Erb, who likely fell victim to AIRBHG.

Coming to Kirk Ferentz’s staff will be Jim Reid and Bobby Kennedy. Reid was the defensive coordinator at Virginia before being let go in December, and Kennedy was on Jon Embree‘s coaching staff at Colorado.

I am very appreciative of Lester and Darrell’s many positive contributions to Iowa football over the years and wish them both the best moving forward,” said Ferentz in a statement. “I am excited to have Bobby and Jim join our staff. Both men have coaching experiences that will complement and supplement our staff and team in a positive way. Jim and Bobby are tremendous individuals who will be a good fit on our campus and great representatives of our university and football program.”

Iowa is coming off a 4-8 season.
