Iowa Football Drug Scandal: Did the Whole Team Submit to Drug Testing?
According to a report by the Iowa City Press-Citizen, the University of Iowa's policy allows any head coach to request drug testing for the entire team.
“If they have a reason, they can ask their team be tested,” Iowa associate athletics director Fred Mims told the Press-Citizen.
The Press-Citizen wrote on December 13, "In the wake of the arrest of Iowa all-Big Ten receiver Derrell Johnson-Koulianos on a handful of drug-related charges, did the entire football team submit to testing? Mims would not confirm."
When prompted whether or not the entire team was tested, Mims said: “I’m not going to talk about that.”
Hawkeyes All-Big Ten wide receiver Derrell Johnson-Koulianos was arrested last Tuesday, and reportedly provided a urine sample to police and tested positive for marijuana and cocaine, according to police reports. Iowa head coach, Kirk Ferentz told reporters in a press conference that Johnson-Koulianos would not play football for the Hawkeyes again.
The 7-5 Hawkeyes are set to play the Missouri Tigers in the Insight Bowl on December 28.
