Iowa has added Derrick Foster to its football staff, filling the spot that opened this month with the NCAA allowance of a 10th assistant coach. Foster previously coached running backs at Samford. He worked at Northwestern State in 2013 and at Tennessee in 2012. An Alabama native, Foster will coach on the offensive side at Iowa, allowing LeVar Woods to focus primarily on special teams, coach Kirk Ferentz said. Woods coordinated special teams last season for the Hawkeyes while also coaching tight ends.

Iowa lost a second standout today to the NFL draft as an early entrant. Junior James Daniels, a two-year starter at center, declared his intentions Friday, joining All-America cornerback Josh Jackson. Daniels was an honorable-mention All-Big Ten pick in 2017. Iowa had not lost a player early to the NFL since 2011. Coach Kirk Ferentz confirmed the departure of both in addition to the transfer of graduate QB Tyler Wiegers to Eastern Michigan.

College football has proven that wrong again over the past week — the latest example involving Iowa, which is getting absolutely dragged through the mud by those making the CFP case against Ohio State. It is ugly out there, Hawkeyes. You may want to shield your eyes today.
