In addition, the University of Iowa Office of General Counsel has hired the Kansas City law firm of Husch Blackwell to conduct an independent review of issues and allegations relating to racial disparities within the football program.

Doyle has come under fire lately from former players alleging racial mistreatment.  He has been on administrative leave for the past 2 weeks. Raimond Braithwaite will continue as interim director of the football strength and conditioning program.
