Jerry Burns  

He served seven total years as an assistant coach to Forest Evashevski. As a member of the Hawkeye coaching staff, he was a part of three Big Ten Conference championship teams and two Rose Bowl victories.

As part of a deal with Iowa Athletic Board, Evy was appointed as Iowa's athletic director and agreed to appoint his successor as head football coach at Iowa. Evy appointed Burns to succeed him, and he became Iowa's 20th head football coach beginning with the 1961 season. He was 34 years old. In 1962, for the only time in school history, Iowa defeated both Michigan and Ohio State in the same year. He served as the head football coach at the University of Iowa, from 1961 to 1965, compiling record of 16-27-2.

Following his years at Iowa, he served as the defensive backs coach with the NFL’s Green Bay Packers for two seasons. Green Bay won Super Bowl I and Super Bowl II both years. He later was named head coach of the Minnesota Vikings of the National Football League (NFL) from 1986 to 1991, tallying a mark of 52-43 in the regular season, and 3-3 in the postseason. He retired following the 1991 season. He is a member of the Minnesota Vikings Ring of Honor.

Born 1/24/1927 and died on 5/12/2021 at the age of 94.

This site is NOT an official website of the University of Iowa or NCAA. I created this to save time searching for past videos, and watch them in the correct sequence. Any help in finding missing videos would be greatly appreciated! I can process old VHS tapes and DVDs. Special thanks to Sports-Reference.com, Wikipedia, The Daily Iowan, UI Digital Library, SportsLogos.Net and the University of Iowa Athletics Department for the historical game results! Contact us if you want a similar website for your favorite school. Site ads and links to buying game tickets contain affiliate links, which means if you purchase after clicking the link we may receive compensation, which helps cover hosting cost of the site, so thank you! We can also take donations if you want to support this work. Why not women's sports or wrestling? There just isn't enough videos online to post, so 99% of the games would have no videos available. If more highlights or full game videos can be uploaded online, I would love to include the sport and players into the website. If you want me to credit photos or remove photos, please contact me.
