Iowa State Has New Football Coach

By  | 

DES MOINES, Iowa -- Iowa State has hired Auburn defensive coordinator Paul Rhoads as its football coach.
Rhoads is a native of nearby Ankeny, Iowa. He spent last season
with the Tigers after serving as Pittsburgh's defensive coordinator
from 2000-07.
Iowa State said in a statement on Saturday that Rhoads agreed to
a five-year deal worth $5.75 million in guaranteed compensation.
Incentives are available to increase that total.
Iowa State will hold a news conference later in the day to
introduce Rhoads. He was an assistant with the Cyclones from
1995-99.
Former Iowa State coach Gene Chizik was introduced as Auburn's
head coach on Monday.
