New Iowa WR coach seeks to boost pass attack


April 3rd, 2013 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — It wouldn’t be fair to pin Iowa’s underperforming passing game on its wide receivers. It was everyone’s fault. The Hawkeyes ranked 102nd in the nation with 187.4 yards passing and third-worst with just seven TD passes. Wide receivers coach Erik Campbell has been replaced with Bobby Kennedy, who worked at Texas with offensive coordinator Greg Davis.

Kennedy says he’s been impressed by Iowa’s enthusiasm and desire to improve. Kennedy says he can tell the Hawkeyes were embarrassed by a 4-8 record and want to turn the program around.
