Iowa State Cleaning House, Fires Offensive and Defensive Coordinator

AMES, Iowa (AP) -- Iowa State football coach Gene Chizik is making big changes to his coaching staff after the Cyclones' dismal 2-10 season. Chizik has removed his offensive and defensive coordinators and fired two other assistants. Chizik, in a statement released on Sunday, announced that offensive coordinator Robert McFarland and defensive coordinator Wayne Bolt have been removed. Bolt will remain as linebackers coach, while McFarland will retain his role as an assistant coach and remain as the offensive line coach. Chizik dismissed quarterbacks coach Tony Petersen and secondary coach Shawn Raney. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- One must begin to wonder if Hawkins will pull the trigger anytime soon. I will be disappointed if the Buffs don't upgrade or make some drastic changes in the offseason, before everyone else does. Off Topic: How good does a Lane Kiffin hire sound right now with the package of his dad and Tampa Bay defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin and former Ole Miss coach and recruiting guru Ed Orgeron?
