Iowa Football Adds Abdul Hodge to Staff

IOWA CITY, Iowa – Three-time All-Big Ten linebacker and Hawkeye team captain Abdul Hodge is returning to Iowa City, joining the University of Iowa football staff as tight ends coach, Moon Family head football coach Kirk Ferentz announced Tuesday.

Hodge, who starred for the Hawkeyes from 2002-2005, has spent the past three years as outside linebackers coach and NFL liaison at the University of South Dakota.

“I have a tremendous amount of respect for Abdul,” Ferentz said. “We first got to know him when recruiting him in 1999 and 2000. He was a terrific player for us, but more than his accomplishments on the field, he was an outstanding leader for our football team.
