Nord to miss Iowa game

Purdue offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Gary Nord is hospitalized in Lafayette after suffering a back injury Wednesday and did not accompany the team to Iowa Friday.

The athletic department announced the new Friday afternoon, after the Boilermakers had landed in Iowa.

Nord was injured prior to Wednesday's practice and has been under doctor's care since then.

According to a Purdue spokesperson, head coach Danny Hope and wide receivers coach Patrick Higgins will be in charge of the offense.

Higgins is the lone available member of the offensive staff with coordinator experience and would seem like the most logical fill-in.

Higgins was Nord's offensive coordinator at Texas-El Paso from 2000-03.
