Where are they now? Bill Ennis-Inge
|Bill Ennis-Inge played defensive end for the Iowa Hawkeyes from 1993 to 1996 and was a four-time letter winner. After two straight .500 seasons, Ennis-Inge helped the Hawkeyes to back-to-back bowl berths in his junior and senior campaigns. In 1995, Iowa finished 8-4 after a 38-18 victory over Washington in the Sun Bowl. Ennis-Inge was named a co-captain as a senior and lead the Hawkeyes to a 9-3 record and a 3rd place finish in the Big Ten. Ennis-Inge dedicated the 1996 season to his father and uncle, whom both passed away during the offseason before his senior year. Iowa was invited to the 1996 Alamo Bowl where the defense pitched a shutout against a high-powered Texas Tech passing attack. The Hawkeyes went on to win 27-0 to close out the season and give head coach Hayden Fry what would be his last bowl victory. Ennis-Inge finished his Iowa career with 173 tackles, 37 tackles for a loss, and 24 sacks. He was named an honorable mention All-Big Ten performer after his senior season and was a first-team Academic All-Big Ten member.|
Ennis-Inge signed a free agent contract out of college with the NFL's Tennessee Titans. After one year with Tennessee, he returned to Iowa City to work with the Hawkeye football program as a graduate assistant and recruiting coordinator. In 2001, Ennis-Inge was hired by the UNI Panthers as linebackers coach. He would later become UNI's co-defensive coordinator and special teams coordinator before leaving after the 2004 campaign to coach defensive line for the Colorado Buffaloes. After the 2004 season, Ennis-Inge left Colorado after one season to join head coach Chuck Long's staff at San Diego State.
