D.J. Hernandez, who was an offensive graduate assistant at Miami (Fla.), revealed on Twitter late Thursday evening he will be the newest assistant on the Iowa coaching staff, taking over tight ends. Hernandez is the brother of current New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, who had Brian Ferentz as his position coach in 2011.
Hernandez joins the Hawkeyes after reports surfaced Thursday that wide receivers coach Erik Campbell was on his way out of Iowa City. No new wide receivers coach has been officially announced by the UI, but the tight end group Hernandez will take over was coached last season by David Raih, a former Iowa quarterback who had served as a graduate assistant before being promoted last year when head coach Kirk Ferentz reshuffled his staff.
