COACHING CHANGES: Rhoads Fires Two

Iowa State football coach Paul Rhoads is making quick changes after a disappointing season.

Offensive coordinator Courtney Messingham and running backs coach Kenith Pope are both out.

Messingham faced lots of criticism this season, leading an offense that struggled most of the year. He also coached the quarterbacks.

Both Pope and Messingham have been with Iowa State the last four years.

The search for replacements begins immediately.

The Cyclones ended the season with a record of 3-9 and only won two conference games.
