Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads addresses the media during a news conference on Dec. 7 at New York’s Yankee Stadium, where, on Dec. 30, the Cyclones will face Rutgers in the Pinstripe Bowl. ISU rewarded Rhoads with a 10-year contract on Friday.
Johnny Majors left Iowa State for Pittsburgh in the early 1970s and later won a national title. Earle Bruce dumped the Cyclones for Ohio State in the late 70s, and Gene Chizik needed just five wins in two seasons to land the Auburn job.
