Messingham, Pope, let go at ISU

Posted: Updated:

One day after Iowa State's 52-44 triple overtime victory over West Virginia, head coach Paul Rhoads made some personnel changes.

Rhoads fired offensive coordinator Courtney Messingham and running backs coach Kenith Pope.  The Cyclone head coach released this statement, "I want to thank both Courtney and Kenith for their service to Iowa State," Rhoads said. "They have great character and work ethic, and have been excellent ambassadors for the university and community. They worked hard to help elevate our program and have been an important part of the success we have had in this program the last five years."

Messingham was hired in 2009 and spent the last 2 seasons as offensive coordinator.
