A former quarterback at Indiana and Missouri State, Jay Rodgers coaches Iowa State receivers under offensive coordinator Robert McFarland.  McFarland was previously head coach at Stephen F.

Under Rodgers, Iowa State’s Todd Blythe finished his career as the Cyclones’ all-time leader in receptions (176), receiving yards (3,096) and TD catches (31).  R.J. Sumrall became a prime target last season with his 54 receptions, ranking eighth in Iowa State single-season history.


Rodgers guided Stephen F. Austin quarterback Danny Southall to status as the Southland Conference’s top-rated quarterback in 2005 and the leader in total offense in 2006, averaging 208.64 yards per game.  Southall’s predecessor, Zeke Dixon, became one of the top producing quarterbacks in SFA history. The ‘Jacks led the SLC in pass offense in 2005 as Dixon threw for 2,407 yards and 20 touchdowns.


Rodgers was quarterbacks coach at Missouri State in 2004.  In 2003, he coached receivers, quarterbacks and was passing game coordinator at Dodge City (Kan.) Community College. Dodge City ranked first in the conference in passing offense and third in passing efficiency.

He worked on the offensive side of the ball on the 2001 LSU SEC champion team. Rodgers earned a bachelor’s degree from Indiana in 2000.
