Ottumwan Ash to Lead Rutgers Against Iowa


It’s a long way from Ottumwa, Iowa to being the head football coach at a Power-5 school, but that’s a journey Chris Ash completed last offseason when he was named to the head job at Rutgers. Perhaps appropriately, his first Big 10 Conference game as the head coach takes place this Saturday against the Iowa Hawkeyes.

Rutgers is 2-1 through Ash’s first three games, and the Scarlet Knights have bounced back from a season-opening loss at Washington to post two straight wins. Ash says he’s proud of his team’s tenacity.
