Tom Manning will make $650,000 a year during his second stint as Iowa State’s offensive coordinator, according to his contract that The Register received Tuesday through a Freedom of Information Act request. It’s a two-year deal that expires June 30, 2021.
His contract includes the stipulation that he owes Iowa State $50,000 if he accepts another position at a Division I football program.
Cyclones defensive coordinator Jon Heacock earned $650,000 last year in the first year of a contract that expires June 20, 2020.
Manning was an original member of coach Matt Campbell’s staff, but left after the 2017 season to become the Indianapolis Colts’ tight ends coach. He returned to Iowa State after the 2018 season.
“I think Tom enjoyed his experience here,” Campbell told The Register after he returned to campus from a recruiting trip last week. “We’ve all worked together. I like the alignment that him and Joel have. They’ve been together for a long time.
“He’s really invested in this place, if he’s coming back.”
That’d be Joel Gordon, the Cyclones’ passing game coordinator, who helped freshman Brock Purdy to one of the finest quarterbacking seasons in Iowa State history.
New defensive backs coach Matt Caponi will make $240,000, and he’s also signed to a two-year contract. He came to Campbell’s staff after most recently coaching at West Virginia.
