Former strength coach will receive around $200,000 more from separation agreement in benefits
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - Former strength and conditioning coach at the University of Iowa Chris Doyle will receive around $200,000 in benefits on top of his $1.1 million separation agreement.
Doyle was placed now on administrative leave after dozens of former players took to social media last week about racial concerns in the program.
A university spokesperson said Doyle had 480 hours leftover, over 21 years, from vacation time from his time with the Hawkeyes. He’ll receive compensation for $184,615.39. Doyle will also receive UI health insurance for 15 months, which UI estimated to cost about $26,000.
The money will come out of the UI athletic department budget.
The university is conducting an independent review of issues and allegations relating to racial disparities within the football program. Husch Blackwell, a Kansas City law firm, will conduct the independent review of issues and allegations relating to racial disparities within the football program. Attorney fees for the investigation will cost the school up to $675 an hour.
