moving off one head football coach and to another, apparently, has not taken too long. today, iowa state announced that matt campbell will be the cyclones next head football coach. campbell has served as the head coach at the university of toledo for the last four seasons and made his name in 2015 by guiding the rockets to victories at state. he turned 35 today. tv-9's josh christensen will have more hire. some tension lingers between the iowa dot and the city of cedar rapids regarding the traffic cameras along interstate 380. the dot says the city must remove 2 of the 4 sections of cameras along the interstate, and the city refuses to do so. kcrg tv-nine's brea loved looked into the pending legal battle. brea -- the cameras have been live for 5 years now -- is this battle about revenue for the city or safety? chris, the city says it's all about safety, but the dot doesn't agree. when the cameras went up along the interstate in 2010
