McCaffery adds another Iowan

Seems like Fran McCaffery is making a big effort to bring former Hawkeyes -- both natives of the state and U of I players -- back to the Iowa program. His newest addition is former double-double threat Ryan Bowen a video coordinator and administrative assistant.

The AP story is below:

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Former Iowa standout and NBA veteran Ryan Bowen has been added to new coach Fran McCaffery's staff.

McCaffery says Bowen will serve as the Hawkeyes video coordinator and administrative assistant.

Bowen recently retired after an 11-year career in pro basketball that included stops in Denver, Houston, New Orleans and Oklahoma City.

Bowen, a native of Fort Madison, Iowa, scored over 1,000 points and grabbed 804 rebounds for the Hawkeyes from 1994-98.

Bowen played one game for the NBA's Thunder this season before calling it quits in November.

Bowen is the second former Hawkeye hired by McCaffery. Kirk Speraw, who played at Iowa in the late 70s, will serve as an assistant coach.
