    Is this record worth $3 mil. a year?

    Kirk Ferentz Record at Iowa

    2005 7-5
    2006 6-7
    2007 6-6

    Thats a record of 18-18 over the past three years. Football is about what have you done for me lately. Is that worth $3 million a year? And does next year look a lot better for them? Add to that the off field behavior and this begins to look bleak.

    It's good work if you can get it.

    The state's highest paid employee and he fails half the time....sounds about right.

    Not that is matters, but I add that record to be 19-18


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Come on now, the math looks like the record is 19-18 which is a winning record!

    Did he say he would leave if they didnt pay him that or does Iowa pay him that because they can?

    You are right. Sorry about my math. On second thought, he must deserve a raise! Just call me dumb and dumber.

    Re: Is this record worth $3 mil. a year?

    if you want to keep your coach from leaving your crappy program to go coach in the NFL, then i say yes. but how much does he spend on gum a year? your probably looking at 1.3 million give or take. so it averages out to a more reasonable amount in the end.

    Re: Is this record worth $3 mil. a year?

    I look at it this way.

    At the time of the extension, Iowa was coming off of 3 consecutive top 10 finishes, 3 straight January bowl games, 2 Big Ten titles in 3 years, and showed no signs of slowing down. The NFL was calling, and programs such as Florida, Nebraska, Texas AM had been expressing interest.

    Right now, it looks like it was a bad move. However, had the extension not been made, it's likely he would have gone somewhere else. There were a lot of lucrative offers on the table. Not to mention, he did a lot for the U of I, and there is no reason why they shouldn't have done anything/everything to show their appreciation.

    That being said, right now things are looking down. Something needs to change. IMO, KF will be taking a chance if he keeps his staff in tact. I fully believe that if KOK is still around after this season, and Reece Morgan (O-Line coach) hasn't been let go, then everything that happens in the next few seasons falls on Ferentz's shoulder.

    It's been 3 years now since an 8+ win season, and for the money being made, that isn't acceptable. I don't have a problem with the amount, considering the fact that Iowa is completely self-sustaining. My problem is that money like that is symbolic of success and expectations, and if both are low, then that is a big problem.

    From the DSM Rag, "“Absolutely I expect Kirk to be our coach next season,” Barta said"

    ...In related news, the University of New Mexico put out a release stating the Steve Alford had also taken his name out of the running for the Michigan job, and has received a raise....

    Captain is obviously being picked upon. It does not look that bright in 08. That is about $500k per win.
