Iowa Barnstormers Build 2017 Coaching Staff

DES MOINES - The Iowa Barnstormers have bolstered their 2017 coaching staff with the addition of three talented coaches, Head Coach Dixie Wooten announced today. Joining Coach Wooten this season will be Marcus Coleman, Michael Custer, and Malcolm Nelson. 

"To build a culture, you have to start by bringing in the right coaches that know what it takes to build a culture," said Coach Wooten. "These guys bring experience, hard work, and understanding of the game to help build the culture we want in Iowa. I'm excited to have a great staff."

Coleman joins the Iowa Barnstormers staff as the Defensive Coodinator and the team's defensive backs coach. Coleman is a former NFL defensive back, during his 10 year career he spent ime with the New York Jets, Houston Texans, and Dallas Cowboys. In 2010, Coleman was honored by his alma mater as he was inducted into the Texas Tech Athletics Hall of Fame. In 2016, Coleman joined the Indoor Football League (IFL) as the defensive backs coach for the now defunct Tri-Cities Fever.

Custer will join the Barnstormers staff as Assistant Head Coach and Offensive Line Coach. Custer has over 20 years of experience in coaching, having coached in college, arena football, and indoor football. Custer was part of the Cedar Rapids Titans coaching team for four seasons, winning over 40 games and seeing the conference championship game all four years. 

Nelson joins the Iowa Barnstormers as the Defensive Line Coach and Special Teams Coordinator. Nelson has over 15 years of combined coaching experience in high school, college, and indoor football. While coaching at Livingstone College, Nelson earned the opportunity to coach with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2011 as part of the Bill Walsh Coaching Fellowship.
