Report: Iowa State to name Jeff Myers as offensive line coach

The Iowa State Cyclones haven’t wasted any time finding a replacement at offensive line coach, as reports indicate graduate assistant Jeff Myers is expected to take the role.

Tom Manning, the former offensive line coach, left the Cyclones to take a job with the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday. Just one day later, and Alex Halsted of Cyclone Alert both reported that Myers is expected to take over the job.

“In hiring Myers, Iowa State would add an assistant who has worked closely with the current offensive linemen, who has knowledge of Iowa State’s recruiting efforts and who has been mentored under Campbell and Manning in recent years,” Halsted wrote.

Myers played under Matt Campbell at Toledo before following his old coach to Iowa State.

Manning was also the offensive coordinator for Iowa State, although it does not appear that Myers will fill that role. The school has not officially announced the hiring.

The Cyclones would have nine on-field assistant coaches if Myers does indeed take the job. That would leave Iowa State with one more spot to fill on the coaching staff.
