Iowa State didn't have to look far to find its new offensive coordinator.

Cyclones coach Paul Rhoads tabbed receivers coach Courtney Messingham as the team's new playcaller.

"Courtney has coached at every level of college football and has head coach and coordinator experience," Rhoads said in a release. "He has earned this opportunity through hard work and positive results as a coach and as a recruiter. We have the right man."

He replaces Tom Herman, who left to be Urban Meyer's offensive coordinator at Ohio State.
