Ames, Iowa — Deon Broomfield says he is focused on the future of the Iowa State program and not the past. Broomfield joined the Cyclone coaching staff as safeties coach after a season in which ISU beat Oregon in the Fiesta Bowl. He played for the Cyclones from 2010 to 2013.
Broomfield spent this past season as a defensive assistant for the Houston Texans. He knew he wanted to be a coach while spending time of the Buffalo Bills’ practice squad in 2014.
Broomfield is coaching a position that includes Greg Eisworth. The three-time first team All Big 12 selection decided to return for his fifth year.
Broomfield says Eisworth’s leadership skills are most impressive.
