Wyoming officially adds Iowa OL coach as new OC
It’s official, Tim Polasek is heading to Cowboy Country.
Wednesday, Wyoming officially announced that Polasek has been named the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for the program. He joins Craig Bohl’s staff after spending the last four seasons with Kirk Ferentz at Iowa.
ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg reported the potential move on Tuesday and it was made official by Wyoming one day later.
“We’re excited about welcoming Tim Polasek to the Cowboy family,” said Bohl, in a statement. “His experience coaching on the offensive side of the football is going to add great value as we continue to re-engineer and improve our offense going into the 2021 season.”
Polasek worked with Bohl at North Dakota State before the head caoch took the job at Wyoming. After accepting the position, Polasek talked about his excitement to join the Cowboys staff while also thanking Ferentz and the Hawkeye program.
“To reunite with Coach Bohl, a true mentor of mine, is very special. A long time ago Coach Bohl took a chance on me and helped me learn how to be a teacher and a leader. He laid the foundation of what is my coaching philosophy and teaching style. I will do everything I can to help him continue his success with Cowboy Football.
“A huge thank you to Kirk Ferentz for taking a shot on an offensive coach who had never coached the O-line. I’ve learned so much in my four years at Iowa, and I will forever be grateful. He taught me what is really important in this business and what is just noise. In my time at Iowa, I can honestly say that I learned something from him every day. Coach Ferentz and his staff exemplify what it is to be true professionals. I wish them all the best moving forward.”
Iowa finished the 2020 season with a 6-2 record.
