Toughness, compassion personified Elliott

Time never changed Bobby Elliott.

The former Iowa player and son of long-time Hawkeye director of athletics Bump Elliott coached football with toughness and compassion, creating a unique bond which extended from those he taught more than a generation ago to those who only began learning from him in recent months.

Elliott died Saturday night at the age of 64 following a lengthy battle with cancer, and thoughts from those he coached and worked with illustrate his legacy.


“The world lost a great man last night. Bob Elliott was not just a coach. He was a mentor and most importantly, he was my friend,’’ said Mike Goff, an offensive lineman at Iowa from 1994-97 who went on play 12 seasons in the NFL.
