Rhoads hires Troy Douglas as secondary coach

The following is a press release sent out by Iowa State athletics communications 

AMES, Iowa -Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads announced the hiring of former North Carolina secondary coach Troy Douglas Thursday, citing Douglas’ quarter of a century  in collegiate coaching, with most of that experience coming in the secondary. The hire fills out the Cyclone staff under Paul Rhoads.

“Troy possesses a dynamic background after years of coaching the secondary at the BCS level,” Rhoads said. “His experience recruiting the state of Florida is important to our program. He coached with (Iowa State defensive coordinator) Wally Burnham at South Florida, so he came highly recommended.”

Douglas’ Iowa State tenure begins in his 25th season as a college coach. His initial Cyclone season marks his 23rd year in the defensive backfield. He has coached in a total of 10 bowl games, including six straight postseason appearances. Douglas recently completed his third season as Carolina’s defensive backs coach. He has tutored 16 players who have players in the National Football League.
