Iowa Has Chosen It’s New Offensive Line Coach
Iowa will name its new offensive lline coach later this week and he'll come from a program that defeated Iowa during the 2016 season.
The Des Moines Register reports Iowa will hire North Dakota State offensive coordinator Tim Polasek as its new offensive line coach. He will replace Brian Ferentz, who is now Iowa's offensive coordinator.
Polasek started as a graduate assistant at North Dakota State in 2006. In 2013, he was the tight ends and fullbacks coach at Northern Illinois, which went 12-2 that season. He then returned to North Dakota State where he has been the offensive coordinator for the last three seasons.
During the 2016 season, North Dakota State upset Iowa at Kinnick Stadium, rushing for 239 yards in the game. When he arrives in Iowa City, Polacek will be working with an offensive line that was named the nation's best in 2016, winning the Joe Moore Award.
Iowa has one opening remaining on the staff, a wide receivers coach. That announcement is expected Wednesday.
