While the University of Iowa football team was on its second bye week of the 2014 season, former Hawkeye linebacker Palmer Foster was preparing to play, and coach, football...across the pond.

Foster earned a scholarship to Durham University in Durham, England, to work on a master's degree and to play and coach football, or as it is known there, 'American football.'

"For Durham University, they have a head coach listed for insurance purposes, but other than that, they don't list an actual coach," says Foster. "Their philosophy is, why not bring American college athletes over that are interested in getting a world-class master's degree to play and coach?"

Foster is doing just that.
