Iowa has named Seth Wallace as its new football recruiting coordinator, head coach Kirk Ferentz announced in a release sent Thursday afternoon. The hiring of Wallace was first reported Thursday by Wallace replaces former assistant coach Eric Johnson, who left the program last April to pursue a career running a Culver’s restaurant in Tennessee.

Wallace previously served as a graduate assistant at Iowa under Ferentz from 2006-08, where he gained coaching experience working with the Hawkeye secondary alongside current defensive coordinator and defensive backs coach Phil Parker. He returns to Iowa after spending the last five seasons coaching at Valdosta State, including the past three years serving as its defensive coordinator.

“We are excited to have Seth return to Iowa,” Ferentz said in a statement issued by the UI on Thursday. “Seth did a tremendous job here as a graduate assistant and has distinguished himself serving in several roles at Valdosta State. Seth is an excellent teacher, highly organized, knowledgeable and is an outstanding person.”
