  07/10/20 - Broderick BinnsrSr/2012, Iowa, 6-0, 258 (DS#48 OLB) + More +

  Broderick Binns is moving beyond his role with the Iowa football team to take over as executive director for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion for the entire athletic department. Binns had held the position on an interim basis since it was created in August. The move announced Friday solidifies him as the permanent person in charge of helping all Hawkeye athletes transition into college life socially and academically, as well as in their respective sports. In addition, Binns will implement diversity initiatives for athletes, coaches and staff and oversee the athletic department's Diversity Taskforce and Action Plan, making sure it aligns with campus-wide diversity efforts.

Binns will report to Liz Tovar, associate athletics director for academic services. Iowa is among many college and professional sports organizations that are creating such roles. Binns had been reporting to football coach Kirk Ferentz for the past six years, the last four as director of player development. Binns was a star defensive end at Iowa from 2008-11. He has a bachelor's degree in psychology and a master's degree in sport and recreation management, both from Iowa. - Iowa City Press-Citizen

  06/29/20 - Akrum WadleySr/2018, Iowa, 5-10, 194 (DS#17 RB) + More +

  Akrum Wadley released a statement Monday alleging mistreatment so bothersome from his Iowa football coaches that he now regrets ever playing for the Hawkeyes. "What you see on TV isn't what you get behind closed doors," the statement from the recent Hawkeye standout concluded. Wadley compiled 3,633 rushing and receiving yards with 35 touchdowns as a Hawkeye running back from 2014-17. Yet he said playing on Saturdays was his only relief after enduring mental and physical anguish during the week at the hands of his coaches. Wadley's statement, posted on the Facebook page of Pre-PostGame CEO Robert T. Green, mentioned head coach Kirk Ferentz, offensive coordinator Brian Ferentz, director of player development Broderick Binns and former strength and conditioning coach Chris Doyle.

Green's Massachusetts-based company is "designed to empower athletes on the business of sports." He has been representing some former Hawkeyes as they speak out about their experiences in Kirk Ferentz's program. About 50 former Iowa players, most of them Black, have gone public this month with claims of racial bias within the program. Doyle was singled out by many and has since been removed from the coaching staff under an agreement in which he admitted no guilt and will be paid $1.1 million. The university has hired a law firm to conduct a review of the football program. - Iowa City Press-Citizen

  06/22/20 - Matt LorbeckSr/2021, Iowa, 6-3, 247 (DS#86 DE) + More +

  Matt Lorbeck has found a new football home. After playing his first three collegiate seasons at Northern Illinois University, the former Bay Port star announced Monday that he is transferring to the University of Iowa. The 6-foot-4, 255-pound defensive end entered the NCAA transfer portal May 18, and the Hawkeyes were on his list from the beginning. Lorbeck likes that Iowa is in the Midwest and that he gets the opportunity to play for a Power 5 school. His older brother, Zach, recently completed a standout track and field career at the University of Wisconsin. He will see some familiar faces when he arrives in August.

Lorbeck has a good relationship with Iowa assistant Tim Polasek, who recruited him when he was coaching at North Dakota State University. He will be joined by former NIU teammate Jack Heflin, who also transferred to Iowa this offseason. A former high school teammate, Jack Plumb, is entering his sophomore year as an offensive lineman with the Hawkeyes. Lorbeck will graduate this summer and is eligible to play immediately in 2020, but he plans to redshirt to prepare for a senior season he hopes will help propel him to an NFL future. - Iowa City Press-Citizen
