BOONE — The every two years release of high school football classifications, districts and schedules that typically come out in January from the Iowa High School Athletic Association is being put on hold. The association’s Board of Control on Thursday discussed the football advisory committee’s recommendations made at the board’s December meeting regarding the number of regular season games and playoff qualifiers, as well as ideas shared in a meeting of Class 4A athletic directors held earlier this month. The board in December tabled a proposal from the advisory committee and the Iowa Football Coaches Association for an eight-game regular season and having 32 playoff qualifiers per class, minus 4A, but did not vote on the topic Thursday. IHSAA executives on Thursday presented the board with possible scheduling models to address competitive equity concerns, with the board setting February 5th as the deadline date for a recommendation regarding football districts for 2021 and 2022.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings have chosen Gary Kubiak as their offensive coordinator. He fills the vacancy created by Kevin Stefanski’s departure to become head coach of the Cleveland Browns. The widely expected move was confirmed by a person with knowledge of the decision. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the club had not yet made the announcement. Kubiak served as offensive adviser and assistant to coach Mike Zimmer this season. Kubiak’s playbook helped spur quarterback Kirk Cousins to a career-best season. Zimmer sought continuity with the replacement for Stefanski.
