Report: Iowa State offensive coordinator Tom Manning leaving for NFL job

Iowa State offensive coordinator Tom Manning is leaving the Cyclones for an assistant role in the NFL, according to the Des Moines Register’s Tommy Birch.

Manning is reportedly leaving Iowa State for an assistant position with the Indianapolis Colts.

Manning was an assistant on Iowa State coach Matt Campbell’s staff at Toledo before leaving in 2015 to join Campbell in Ames, Iowa, to coach the Cyclones’ offense.

Manning helped Iowa State finish its 2017 season with an 8-5 record, including a bowl win over Memphis in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl. Manning coached a pair of All-Big 12 first-team selections in running back David Montgomery and wide receiver Allen Lazard.

Not only did the offensive coordinator revitalize the Cyclones’ production on offense, limiting turnovers was a cornerstone of how Manning and Campbell made an Iowa State a dangerous team in the Big 12.
