A week and a half after many former Iowa football players tweeted out their negative experiences while playing at the university, some mentioning now former strength and conditioning Chris Doyle, changes have been made.
According to ESPN, an agreement between Doyle and Iowa was signed on Sunday and announced on Monday.
