Iowa head football coach Kirk Ferentz announced the appointment of Broderick Binns as Director of Player Development and Tyler Barnes as director of recruiting.  Both assignments are effective immediately.

“Broderick and Tyler bring important strengths to complement our coaching staff,” said Ferentz.  “A comprehensive recruiting program and a proactive player development program are critical to our continued success.”

Binns, a four-year letterman for the Hawkeyes during his playing career, has served as a graduate assistant coach with the Hawkeyes the past two seasons, assisting with the Hawkeye special teams.

Barnes rejoins the Iowa staff after serving on the Vanderbilt University football staff the past three years.  He held the position of director of player personnel the past two seasons after serving as co-recruiting coordinator in 2013.
