IOWA CITY, Iowa — Fall sports are all over the place right now in Iowa, both high-school and college, with some schools not playing altogether and some not changing their schedules at all.
The University of Iowa athletic department released a statement Tuesday regarding impacts their facing due to changes this fall.
The University of Iowa athletics department will cut or leave vacant 40 positions due to COVID-19 budget cuts, officials confirmed Tuesday.
The department also will require all regular, non-contracted employees — excluding senior staff — to take 15 unpaid furlough days before Dec. 31.
Non-contracted Professional & Scientific senior staff in the athletics department will take a 5 percent base salary cut rather than the furlough.
This does not include coaches, but does include administrators, such as Athletic Director Gary Barta.
