As a Chiefs' fan, I was kind of hoping this would happen in the past. I thought he'd be a pretty good NFL head coach. He was mentioned after both Vermeil and Herm left. Now, I'm thinking he'd be in over his head. He seems to suffer from the same thing as Vermeil... too much loyalty to his coaches and players and too stubborn to adapt to new styles.
It's silly to leave U of I, 4 mil a year for as long as he wants unless the wheels fall off vs. 5+ mil for maybe 4 years.
This. I don't understand why anyone thinks that Ferentz will ever leave Iowa on is own doing. He's one of the highest paid coaches in the country and all he has to do is win 8+ games every few years. There's no pressure for him to win a National Championship as long as he reaches a BCS bowl every once in a while. He runs the place over there and no matter what happens to/with his team, he's a teflon don and nothing sticks.
The guys got the cushiest job in college sports today.
Vermeil shows more emotion in one quarter of football than Ferentz has shown in his entire career.
I have a feeling Ferentz is an emotional guy but very guarded about when and where he shows it. He is very highly thought of by NFL people who know what they want in a coach. I think if he really wants to be a head coach in the NFL he will get the opportunity at some point.
