Hawkeyes new running backs coach excited for opportunity

Derrick Foster comes to Iowa from Samford University

IOWA CITY, Iowa - Iowa hired Derrick Foster as its 10th assistant coach, taking advantage of the new NCAA rule that went into effect in January.

He was officially introduced on Wednesday, February 7. The 31-year-old Foster will coach the Hawkeyes running backs. Foster said he believes his coaching philosophy will mesh well with Kirk Ferentz and the current staff.

He comes to Iowa City after two years at Samford University in Alabama.
