It was Roy E. Disney (Jr) who led the effort to replaced Eisner, not Iger. He was just in the right place and the right time after Eisner was stripped of his Board chairmanship and Disney and fellow former Board member Stanley Gold pressured Eisner to resign. From Wikipedia:

After a struggle with CEO Michael Eisner, Roy Disney's influence began to wane as more executives friendly to Eisner were appointed to high posts. When the board of directors rejected Disney's request for an extension of his term as board member, he announced his resignation on November 30, 2003, citing "serious differences of opinion about the direction and style of management" in the company. He issued a letter criticizing Eisner for mismanaging the company, neglecting the studio's animation division, failures with ABC, timidity in the theme park business, instilling a corporate mentality in the executive structure, turning the Walt Disney Company into a "rapacious, soul-less" conglomerate, and for refusing to establish a clear succession plan.
