Iowa Hawkeyes football strength and conditioning coach Chris Doyle was placed on administrative leave Saturday night.

The move comes after multiple players accused Doyle in social media posts of racially insensitive behavior. Head coach Kirk Ferentz announced that Doyle had been placed on leave “immediately while an independent review can take place.” (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

You can watch the full announcement from Ferentz below.

Well, I told you all this was coming. I didn’t expect it to happen so fast, but Iowa acted very quickly in placing Doyle on leave.

You just can’t have tons of players coming forward with accusations of racially charged behavior and not do anything.

It’s really a bad situation, and the accusations aren’t pleasant. He’s accused of taking shots at the way players dress, their behavior and more. You can see some of the tweets below.

Now, Iowa will have an independent review of the situation before making a decision on how to move forward. It’s important we get to the bottom of these accusations.

If they’re deemed true, then I wouldn’t expect Doyle to stick around anymore. It’s just not going to happen.

Keep checking back for more updates when we have them on this developing situation. There’s no doubt that this will be one of the biggest stories in college football for the time being.
