A 6'4", 234-lb. tight end from the University of Iowa, Cook played in 7 NFL seasons from 1989 to 1995 for the Patriots, the Chicago Bears, and the St. Louis Rams. He was a two-time Pro Bowl selection in 1991 and 1992.

Coaching[edit]

Since 2007 he has been the head football coach at Regina High School in Iowa City, where he has won six straight state titles between 2010 and 2015, as well as a state record 56 game winning streak from 2010 to 2013.[1][2]

In 2010, one of Regina's 14 wins was against Class 3A's #1 Ranked team, the Solon Spartans, of the WaMaC Conference, ending Solon's 44 game winning streak.[citation needed]

Regina is the conference rival of Cook's own high school, in West Branch,[3] where his football jersey is retired and in the halls at West Branch High School.
