The Northern Iowa football team has hired a name that is familiar to many college football fans...

Former Kansas State football star Collin Klein will join the Panthers as quarterbacks coach.

Collin Klein was a star quarterback for Kansas State five years ago in a career that culminated with him being a finalist for the Heisman trophy.

Klein comes to UNI after spending the last two seasons as a graduate assistant with his alma mater coaching the quarterbacks.

He served as an assistant director of recruiting and defensive quality control coach in his first year on staff and was an offensive graduate assistant in 2015.
