If 2020 was a historic year for Iowa State football, 2021 could be even better. On the heels of a 9-3 season topped off with a Fiesta Bowl victory over Oregon, the Cyclones have plenty of reasons to be excited about what's coming back — beginning with coach Matt Campbell.
Campbell appeared to confirm he would be returning to Ames in a tweet sent on Sunday. Campbell had been on the New York Jets' wishlist, according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora. However, Bruce Feldman of The Athletic later tweeted on Saturday that Campbell was no longer going to interview with the Jets.
"So grateful for the commitment of so many to continue to want to build our program together," Campbell tweeted. "Our foundation has been built on Loyalty and Faithfulness and it will continue to be our guiding light. Humbled and Grateful to continue to lead to be different."
