New Iowa wide receiver coach Bobby Kennedy says that unit is motivated to help the Hawkeyes turn things around next season. Kennedy joined the Iowa staff after spending two years at Colorado. Prior to that he was on the staff at Texas with current Iowa offensive coordinator Greg Davis.
“We’ve had a close relationship in the past, a really good working relationship,” Kennedy says. He says he knows what is expected out of the wide receiver position.
Kennedy says as a group the receivers are embarrassed about last season. “And what I’ve seen out of these guys thus far is that they want to fix it. And that once again excites me because I do think that there is a commitment here, a real strong passion. And that these guys have a willingness to want to be coached and to want to improve every day,” Kennedy says.
Kennedy says last year’s 4-8 record is unacceptable in the eyes of the players. Iowa closes out spring drills on April 27th with a scrimmage.
