Iowa Football: Norm Parker's 8 Best Defensive Performances as a Hawkeye

This year's Insight Bowl matchup against Oklahoma will be the last time Iowa defensive coordinator Norm Parker calls the plays.

Parker has been a football coach for over 40 years, and for the last 13 years, Iowa fans have been lucky to call him a Hawkeye.

He has taken some heat for his conservative, vanilla, bend-but-don't-break defense, which has been known to give up yardage between the 20's. Nonetheless, whatever he's done has worked, as the stats attest to.

During his 13 seasons, six of Norm Parker's D's have been among the top 20 scoring defenses in the nation. Eight of them have been top 30.

Since 2001, the lowest Iowa's scoring defense has been ranked was No. 45 (2006).

In his time, Parker has dialed up some gems. This slideshow will document some of the best.

Hopefully, he has one more tricks up his sleeve when his defense tries to shut down Oklahoma, the No. 10 scoring offense in the country.
