Dennis “Denny” Remmert was a faculty and coaching faculty member at the State College of Iowa (later renamed UNI), and held several positions during his tenure including scouting coordinator, freshman football coach, defensive coordinator, and assistant head coach between the years of 1964 and 1988. Remmert attended the Iowa State Teachers College (ISTC) where he played for the ISTC Basketball team during the 1956 and 1957 seasons, and played for the football team as a defensive tackle between 1957 and 1959.
