Former Iowa QB expected to join Vanderbilt coaching staff
A former Iowa quarterback is expected to take a job in the SEC.
Matt Zenitz of AL.com is reporting that David Raih is expected to be the next offensive coordinator at Vanderbilt. He has served as the Arizona Cardinals wide receivers coach for the past two seasons.
Vanderbilt is going through some staff changes this offseason, after Derek Mason was fired and Clark Lea was hired to be the next leader of the Commodores. This would be Raih’s first gig as an offensive coordinator.
