It's gotta be great, being Kirk Ferentz. Making millinos of dollars for the next decade to field underperforming teams (only after destroying their kidneys, so there's that, I suppose). A few years ago, he hired his son out of 100 applicants -- let me repeat that: he hired his son out of ONE HUNDRED APPLICANTS -- for a position with the football team paying $202,000.
And what the hell -- your elementary schoolteacher of a daughter shouldn't be left out in the cold, right? just 'cause you didn't coach her up on the finer details of the offensive line, like her brother? I mean, that's not the family way!
'Zactly, said little Kirkie. We'll just take advantage of an "emergency" opening so we don't have to post the job, then seek a waiver on down the road so we don't have to post it once the "emergency" has passed.
What a piece of shit this man is. And Iowa is stuck with him unless he KILLS FIVE HOOKERS IN IOWA CITY. OR AMES.
From the blog Dr. Saturday: Kirk Ferentz is already making a borderline obscene amount of money from the University of Iowa. Now the school is looking into Ferentz hiring his future son-in-law to a football administrative assistant job, according to The Gazette in Cedar Rapids. … Continue reading →
Thank you, Denicos.
Ferentz is dreamy.

Do you wish your daughter married a better football administrative assistant?

Kirk is just a great family man. Nothing wrong with that at all. And he's the best coach in America.

Eventually the smell of the Iowa football program will reach a threshold that will embarrass Iowa U administrators sufficiently to ask Coach Ferentz to move on. That said the coach has survived a significant record of player misconduct incidents and the bizarre hospitalization of players following program directed workouts. Why should a little nepotism get anyone excited?
35,600 posts and counting since 09-09-2002. tRCMB Dead Pool Commissioner.
I hope they give him an immediate contract extension because of this move.
Dude is so ethical it should actually be an NCAA violation being so ethical, like kirk is, because, he's ethical.
Jesus...when UW was hiring the HC, it was a long fricking drawn out process because the effing job had to be open to applicants (ANY applicants) for a certain period of time.
For someone who hasn't really accomplished much as a coach, other than being overrated, the guy sure gets run of the shop around there.

This. I'm happy having Ferentz stay right where he is, indefinitely.

Dix has been in this thread. Trust me.
Banned so unable to get on his knees for Ferentz ?
Who cares? He's in charge of the team. He should be able to hire whomever he wants. If he fails, it's on him.
Elated to be a Ferentz supporter; even prouder to love Kinnick Stadium and Hayden Fry.
Who's sorry now?
Yeah, Iowa's a public university. How is this not illegal?
tRCMB - Visit at your own risk of being disgusted.
even if there are ONE HUNDRED APPLICANTS.
if his boss doesn't like it, the boss can then respond appropriately. If Ferentz's hires are so poor, the boss would fire him.
The day Ferentz negative recruits against other teams (I.e lies like a sack of ****) is the day I stop supporting him.
So you're cool with him endangering the health and well-being of his players? Got it.
I stop supporting him when he LIES. Like, for instance, to recruits. That's when I know he's trash.
He felt this guy was qualified, so he hired him.
And that qualification is banging his daughter? Sort of limits the applicant pool unless she gets around town, so to speak.

Funny how he gamed the system so he didn't have to follow the public university hiring rules.
I'll stop supporting Kirk when he finally turns into a decent football coach.
I plan on supporting him at least until his contract is up in 2198.
You read one quote from one recruit and somehow that is your basis for everything behind you below average football coach... Just let go.
So when he tells recruits that his son and SiL were each the best applicant for the job, and his relationship with them had absolutely nothing to do with their being hired, that isn't a lie? Got it.
He gave his son-in-law to be a shitty paying temporary administrative assistant job? Oh noes!!
202k is not a 'shitty paying temp admin. assistant job'........that said, who cares?
