Well, we all knew this was coming. The moment Doyle was placed on leave, I think we all knew his time with Iowa was likely nearing an end.
It’s hard to keep your jobs after multiple allegations of racially insensitive behavior. Of course, that’s not to say Doyle was guilty or innocent.
That’s just the reality of the situation.
Iowa players are sharing stories about racially charged treatment they received from strength coach Chris Doyle. Doyle is the highest paid strength coach in the country. https://t.co/KtVwvlwH9o

Kaevon Merriweather has made it sound like the entire team might kneel during the national anthem!
If you think you could possibly call yourself an Iowa Football fan and you can not agree with what I said and what this team is standing on. Then stop calling yourself a fan, IMMEDIATELY‼️ BECAUSE I CAN PROMISE YOU THAT WE DO NOT CARE‼️???????? pic.twitter.com/DgYFY56ojv

It is wild how Iowa went from being a universally respected program in America to becoming consumed by utter chaos in a matter of days.
Ferentz better figure it out sooner than later, or his team is in big trouble ahead of the 2020 season.
