AMES -- Iowa officials confirmed Sunday that items were missing from the coaches and players locker room after Saturday night’s game at Iowa State.
Iowa State University police confirmed there was a report of a theft of personal property from the Iowa locker room and the report remains under investigation.
Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz and players took an extended period of time to appear for interviews from the Iowa locker room after the Hawkeyes’ 27-21 victory over the Cyclones at Jack Trice Stadium. Police were seen leaving Iowa’s locker room around 9 p.m.
Iowa’s locker rooms are located in the Jacobson Building. It’s the building that sits prominently in the north end zone of Jack Trice Stadium.
The Iowa Athletics Department released a statement Sunday morning:
“Iowa athletic department officials confirmed there were items missing from the Iowa players locker room and the Iowa coaches locker room following the football game in Ames. Iowa State officials and local law enforcement agencies were very helpful once the incident was reported after the game.”
Iowa State athletics declined to comment because the investigation is ongoing.
Here's a tweet from Iowa LB/special teams coach LeVar Woods (who needs a new phone, apparently):
