Iowa State head coach Matt Campbell isn’t going anywhere. Although, his team has known that since early October.
Campbell inked a new six-year deal to stay in Ames, Iowa, on Monday. But following Iowa State’s stunning 38-31 win over Oklahoma on Oct. 7, Campbell met with his team to assure them he wouldn’t be leaving for another job, according to Tommy Birch of the Des Moines Register.

Campbell presumably told this to his team with imminent coaching rumors to circulate regarding Campbell and vacant head-coaching positions.
It’s been a wild 48 hours for the college football coaching carousel, and maybe the biggest transaction came out of Ames when Iowa State locked down its head coach that turned the Cyclones into a legitimate Big 12 title contender this season.
Campbell’s commitment guarantees Iowa State more time to turn its football program into the next big thing in the Big 12, which is already ahead of schedule with Iowa State’s breakout 2017 campaign.
