The UNIVERSITY OF IOWA won't be replacing longtime football radio color commetator ED PODOLAK after all, as the school announces that PODOLAK will return to the booth for the 2009 season.
PODOLAK announced his retirement in JANUARY in the wake of pictures surfacing on a website that showed the former HAWKEYE, pro football player and 27-year HAWKEYE radio analyst appearing intoxicated and peering down a woman's blouse. A week after the announcement, PODOLAK entered a treatment program without disclosing the cause; he will now rejoin GARY DOLPHIN on HAWKEYE radio broadcasts, starting SEPTEMBER 5 with the IOWA-NORTHERN IOWA game.
