Noah Shannon is apologizing to Iowa supporters after being ruled ineligible for the 2023 season.

The NCAA denied Shannon’s appeal regarding his season-long suspension for sports gambling, Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz announced Tuesday. Shannon reportedly bet on a non-football Iowa sports team.

Shannon released the following statement Tuesday afternoon:

“I want to apologize to the fans and everyone who supports Iowa Football. I made a mistake and I have taken responsibility for it. I am heartbroken that I will not be able to play alongside my brothers again, but I plan to stick with the team and support them any way that I can going forward.

“I want to say thank you to my family, Coach Ferentz, the coaching staff, and all of my teammates and friends for their unwavering support. I am going to make sure that this mistake does not define me or my career going forward.”

Shannon’s Iowa career comes to a close with the decision. He has recorded 107 tackles and 4.5 sacks in his Hawkeye career, including 24 solo stops and 2 sacks in 2022.
