Iowa’s Kirk Ferentz faces intense scrutiny
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa’s Kirk Ferentz made nearly $1 million a win last season and yet kept his job — likely for years to come, too.
The Hawkeyes have been left to hope that Ferentz can prove he’s worth all the money they owe him.
Iowa is about to enter its 15th season under Ferentz — who is signed through 2020 with a prohibitive buyout at roughly $2.7 million a year — with nonexistent national expectations. The Hawkeyes collapsed last season, losing their last six games and leaving many fans to grumble that the school couldn’t afford to fire Ferentz even if it wanted to.
