After initially accepting a job on Eddie George's staff at Tennessee State in January, Tyler Roehl has now been named the assistant head coach and running backs coach at Iowa State.

With Roehl now coaching the running backs, this will move coach Jake Walters to serve as the Cyclones quarterback coach.

Walters was originally hired last week to serve as the running backs coach.

Prior to his stint at Tennessee State, Roehl completed a successful 11-year stint as an assistant with North Dakota State.

Roehl spent 2019-2023 as the team's offensive coordinator and coached tight ends and fullbacks from 2014-2018.

During his time as a play caller, North Dakota State took home two FCS titles in 2019 & 2021 also making the championship game in an additional season.

Roehl was also a running back himself at North Dakota State finishing with 2,512 rushing yards during his four collegiate seasons.

The North Dakota native will now get his first opportunity to coach at the FBS level working under newly named offensive coordinator Taylor Mouser.

Last season, Iowa State ranked towards the bottom of the Big 12 in most offensive categories finishing in the bottom half in both yards per game (364.9) and points per game (26.2).
