Iowa State hires Lanning, Kempt as assistants

AMES, Iowa (AP) Iowa State has hired former players Joel Lanning and Kyle Kempt as assistant coaches.

Cyclones coach Matt Campbell said Wednesday that Lanning will be a quality control assistant on defense and that Kempt will have the same role for the offense.

Lanning spent three years as a quarterback before switching to linebacker as a senior in 2017. Lanning earned All-Big 12 honors after ranking third nationally in tackles per game. Kempt opened 2018 as Iowa State's starting quarterback before a knee injury paved the way for freshman Brock Purdy to take over.

The Cyclones open 2019 by hosting Northern Iowa on August 31.
