He assumes the responsibilities of Joe Philbin, who left the Iowa staff to take accept a position with the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League.

"Reese has done a fantastic job in all areas since joining our staff. He is an outstanding football coach, a strong teacher and communicator. I have every confidence that Reese will do a splendid job with this new assignment."

Iowa's search for another offensive assistant will continue. Ferentz hopes to have that position filled within the next ten days.
