2020 Coaching Carousel

Iowa. They can’t just promote Ferentz’s son now can they? Klieman’s going to be in their short list in about a week. :bwpopcorn:

Where are you seeing this?

My original post was somewhat younger-in-cheek, but starting to see tweets saying things like Kirk is reaching out to old players asking if he needs to move on so Iowa can move forward.

It will be interesting to see where this goes. Like one player tweeted out he quit before his senior year because he had diagnosed & medicated ADHD and the strength and LB coaches had called him dumb and simple Jack to the point his self-esteem was completely shot and he finally just broke.

I'd be shocked to see Kirk Ferentz forced out

it sounds like the s&c coach is the main problem, but obviously he could be just the tip of the culture spear, so to speak.

I do think Klieman ultimately ends up at Iowa.

Player story I included was about LB coach. Another player came out and said Kirk was good, but there was racism in the program coming from the ST coach and Kirk’s son.

Here's the thing, do they hire a black coach if he leaves? Try to make a statement?

Ferentz, the older, is in no danger. Some of the players posting stories about the about the strength coach and Brian Ferentz pointed out that the old man was not part of the issue.

Also there are no ties with Klieman to The University of Iowa, never played there, never coached there. He's just as tied to Iowa as Dave Doeren is tied to K-State.

As long as the 'stang is at KSU Cats U, Klieman is not going anywhere (unless it's up to the level of "blue blood" schools like tOSU, Bama, etc). Iowa "may" be a step up, but having an AD you like and you work with means a lot IMO. He'll realistically need a place that is so unquestionably better to have him move.

1. Does he fire his son or pull a 2005 Bill? I agree he’s safe if he cuts those with allegations against them, but one is his son. Does Brian walk away to take the heat off his dad for the betterment of his inheritance?

2. $5 million is the base minimum in the BigTen now. We’re nickle and diming to get a couple extra headcount in the recruiting office, so I doubt we’d come close to that. I have a hard time believing he stays if Iowa offers him the Mel Tucker contract. 

I’m not saying I think this is going to happen, but I can see a reasonable path to it. Does Kirk fire his son is the big question.

I don't know how much this actually matters, but there are nepotism laws in Iowa, which means that Brian Ferentz actually directly reports to Gary Barta.

How much do Strength coaches make? That seems like 3 or 4 full years of pay.
