Iowa Men’s Basketball Coach Fran McCaffery’s staff, long one of the most veteran, experienced crew of teachers has gotten significantly younger but remains very basketball savvy. 41-year-old Courtney Eldridge and Matt Gatens age 33 have been hired to fill the vacancies created by Kirk Speraw’s retirement and Billy Taylor’s head coaching appointment at Elon College in North Carolina. Both Eldridge and Gatens were great players in Fran McCaffery’s system. Both sit down for a visit next on this week’s Fight for Iowa podcast, thanks to our all-American sponsors: Athletico, Iowa Corn and Scheels. Official video of the University of Iowa Athletics.
