OMAHA (KMTV) — Iowa football strength coach Chris Doyle has responded to allegations of mistreatment against black former Hawkeye players.

Doyle was placed on administrative leave Saturday night pending a review led by Iowa athletic director Gary Barta.

Doyle responded on Sunday afternoon through his Twitter account.

Part of the statement reads: "At no time have I ever crossed the line of unethical behavior or bias based on race. I do not make racist comments & I don't tolerate people who do. I am confident that a complete review of the body of work over 21 years will speak for itself & I am trusting the process to respect the rights & experiences of all parties involved."

Doyle has been with head coach Kirk Ferentz the entire 21 years at Iowa & is the highest paid strength and conditioning coach in the country making $800,000 annually.
