IOWA CITY, Iowa — Iowa Hawkeyes play-by-play announcer Gary Dolphin is being reinstated.
Iowa Athletics says Dolphin will return starting with football spring practice, and returning for the 2019-20 football and basketball seasons.
Dolphin was suspended for referring to a Maryland basketball player as King Kong following a game last week. Dolphin says his words had no racist intent, but he accepts the suspension. He was also suspended for two games earlier this year when he was caught on on open mic disparaging Hawkeyes recruiting.
You can hear the live press conference with Dolphin and Iowa Athletics Director Gary Barta on AM 600 WMT.
