Drake football coach Rick Fox has resigned less than two weeks after the Bulldogs nearly pulled off a stunning upset at Iowa State. Drake finished this past season 7-4 and Fox spent five seasons as the head coach.
Fox was a Drake assistant for six years and was elevated to head coach after Chris Creighton left to become the head coach at Eastern Michigan. His original plan was to coach for five years.
Fox says the program has a bright future.
Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says early bowl practices focus on young players. The Hawkeyes play 22nd ranked Mississippi State in the Outback Bowl and Ferentz says getting the veterans some extra rest gives the young players a chance to step up.

The Hawkeyes are 8-4.
