Posted by: Pete Roussel on February 21, 2013
Sources have informed CoachingSearch.com that Minnesota Vikings assistant special teams coach Chris White has accepted the running backs / special teams coordinator job at Iowa.
Earlier in the day, we reported that White and Valdosta State defensive coordinator Seth Wallace had each interviewed for the job with Kirk Ferentz.
White has been with the Vikings since the 2009 season. He previously served a 9-year stint at Syracuse. During his tenure at Syracuse, White coached the wide receivers, tight ends, and served as the special teams coordinator. He also held the title of recruiting coordinator at one point.
White joins Bobby Kennedy and Jim Reid as new assistants to the Iowa staff.
Kirk Ferentz has decided to start spring ball during the week of March 25th.
