A week and a half after many former Iowa football players tweeted out their negative experiences while playing at the university, some mentioning now former strength and conditioning Chris Doyle, changes have been made.

According to ESPN, an agreement between Doyle and Iowa was signed on Sunday and announced on Monday. 

According to WHO-TV Sports Director Keith Murphy, Doyle will still receive 1.1 million dollars as a part of the agreement.

He will also receive 15 months worth of benefits, which ESPN’s says will equate to just under $557,000 dollars, or until he finds employment somewhere else. He is the highest paid strength and conditioning coach in the NCAA, making $800,000 dollars a year at Iowa.

He was the head strength and conditioning coach for 21 seasons at Iowa.
