Iowa linebacker Dillon Doyle announced his decision to enter the transfer portal Tuesday:
As Adam Rittenberg of ESPN noted, the player is the son of Hawkeyes strength and conditioning coach Chris Doyle.
The 51-year-old, who is the highest-paid strength coach in the country, denied the accusations.
"I am confident that a complete review of the body of work over 21 years will speak for itself and I am trusting the process to respect the rights and experiences of all parties involved," he said in a statement, per Rittenberg.
Head coach Kirk Ferentz provided a statement regarding the issue in a video Saturday:
Dillon Doyle had an opportunity to earn significant playing time in 2020 at linebacker after seeing action in all 13 games in 2019.
The former 247Sports 3-star recruit had 23 tackles as a redshirt freshman last season, adding one forced fumble. He was also named an Academic All-Big Ten player.
Jack Campbell could move up in the depth chart at linebacker with Doyle set to leave.
