Former Iowa Hawkeye To Coach KWU

KSAL StaffJanuary 29, 2014

A former Iowa Hawkeye wide receiver is the new head football coach at Kansas Wesleyan University.

The school introduced Matthew Drinkall as its new head coach Wednesday.

Drinkall comes to Salina from St. Ambrose University in Davenport, Iowa.

Drinkall joined the St. Ambrose coaching staff in 2008. After coaching the wide receivers in 2009, he coached the offensive line in 2010. He was named the Offensive Coordinator and Offensive Line coach in 2012.

With Drinkall in charge, the 2012 St. Ambrose offense made its mark in the SAU school record book. The Bees averaged more than 440 yards of offense per game on their way to a conference championship and a spot in the NAIA Football Championship Series playoffs.

Before arriving at SAU, Drinkall coached tight ends at Western Illinois University for two years. During that time, the Leathernecks were one of the nation’s top rushing offenses.

Drinkall was a wide receiver for the Iowa Hawkeyes before an injury ended his playing career prematurely. He played his prep football at Bettendorf High School where he was one of only two players in program history to have both 1,000 yards rushing and 500 yards receiving. Drinkall earned his Master’s degree in 2007 and his undergraduate degree in 2006.

Drinkall takes over at Kansas Wesleyan for Dave Dallas, who resigned in December.
