Before joining Kirk Ferentz’s staff in Iowa City, Polasek spent most of his career coaching at North Dakota State. He was the running backs coach from 2006-12 and also held titles of special teams coordinator, fullbacks coach and tight ends coach. Polasek spent one season at Northern Illinois before returning to North Dakota State as the offensive coordinator.
In addition to being the offensive coordinator at Wyoming, Polasek is expected to be the quarterbacks coach.
At Iowa Polasek has continued the tradition of producing top-notch offensive linemen. He’s coached players like Tristan Wirfs, Alaric Jackson, Tyler Linderbaum and plenty of other talented players along the Hawkeyes front line.
