ISU hires Todd Sturdy as WR coach

Former Washington State offensive coordinator Todd Sturdy is the

new wide receivers coach and passing game coordinator at Iowa


Sturdy, a native of Tipton, Iowa, previously spent 12 seasons as

the head coach at St. Ambrose University in Davenport. He was the

offensive coordinator at Eastern Washington in 2007 before spending

the past four seasons with the Cougars.

Sturdy’s offense ranked ninth nationally in passing offense last


Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads said Tuesday that it’s a real coup

for the Cyclones to land Sturdy based on his success as a

play-caller and his ability to recruit on the West Coast.
