Football announces coaching changes


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Iowa’s football coaching staff will have a slightly different look next season.

DJ Hernandez, brother of New England Patriot and Pro Bowl tight end Aaron Hernandez, was announced as a new graduate assistant on Monday, and he will take over coaching tight ends.

Former wide receivers coach Eric Campbell and former graduate assistant David Raih both left the program after serving for five and three years, respectively.

“David has accepted a position at Texas Tech,” Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz said in a release. “David did a tremendous job for us and will be a great asset to the Texas Tech program. Eric has left the staff to pursue other opportunities. I am appreciative of his many contributions to our program and wish him the best in the future.”

Hernandez previously served one year as a graduate assistant at Miami (Fla.) and worked with wide receivers and special teams. Prior to his stint at Miami, he was the quarterback coach at Brown University.

The official statement comes over a month after Hernandez announced on Twitter that he would leave Coral Gables, Fla., for Iowa City.

Hernandez and the Hawkeyes will start spring practice in late March.
