Cade McNamara officially confirms 2024 plans in message to Iowa fans on social media
Cade McNamara officially announced via social media this week that he will be returning to Iowa City for the 2024 season after suffering a season ending ACL tear injury against Michigan State in Week 5.

McNamara is a Michigan transfer and had a good, not great start to his Iowa career before suffering his injury. He completed over 50% of his passes for 505 yards, 4 touchdowns and 3 interceptions as part of an Iowa program which is not exactly renowned for its passing attack.

The 5th-year QB is eligible for another season due to the Covid-19 pandemic granting an extra year of eligibility.
Deacon Hill is running the show now for the Hawkeyes, who have also lost Erick All and Luke Lachey to season-ending injuries. Without 2 of the team’s better pass catchers Hill has struggled, throwing for 2 touchdowns and 3 interceptions in 7 total appearances this season.
The Hawkeyes face off against Northwestern next Saturday after the Week 9 bye.
