AMES, Iowa (AP) - Iowa State has fired offensive coordinator Courtney Messingham and running backs coach Kenith Pope.
Coach Paul Rhoads announced Sunday that Messingham and Pope were ''relieved'' of their duties less than 24 hours after Iowa State closed out a 3-9 season with a 52-44 triple-overtime win at West Virginia.
Messingham had been with Rhoads for five seasons, the last two as offensive coordinator. But the Cyclones averaged just 24.8 points a game this season and rank 89th nationally with 143.8 yards rushing per game.
The Cyclones say that Rhoads won't have additional comment on the moves for at least two weeks.
