School officials said Tuesday that Cedric Everson III and Abeberell ``Abe'' Satterfield, both former defensive backs, are accused of sexual abuse in the second degree, and Satterfield also is accused of sexual abuse in the third degree.
The arrest warrants are in connection with an incident on Oct. 14, 2007, according to a news release from the school.
Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said the players left the program soon after the incident.
``This situation has always been serious and significant. I am concerned for everyone involved,'' he said. ``Because this is still a legal matter and the information is sensitive, I cannot discuss the specifics of those conversations at this time.''
Everson appeared in five games last season for Iowa, assisting on one tackle. Satterfield did not appear in a game.
