    Kirk hasn't talked with Barta about job

    Kirk Ferentz hasn't talked with Iowa athletic director about Michigan job

    That's a link above.

    Barta said last week that he expects notification from his peers if Ferentz becomes a serious candidate for another head coaching position.

    When asked if Michigan or any other school had contacted him about Ferentz, Barta responded: “No.”

    Re: Kirk hasn't talked with Barta about job

    What about Kirk's agent? He certainly doesn't need Barta's permission to speak with Michigan.

    Re: Kirk hasn't talked with Barta about job

    KF is just floating the rumors to get a big extension and bump in pay. If Barta bites it will be the funniest thing in the world to see the U of I faithful after another .500 or lower season next year.

    Re: Kirk hasn't talked with Barta about job

    If you are seriously considering leaving your job, do you tell your boss your interviewing with other companies? Would your boss treat you the same afterwards if you didnt leave. Probably not....why would his job differ?

    D1 head football coach is a different animal. KF was bandied about 3 or 4 years ago for any and every job that came up. He did nothing to squash the rumors and ended up with the huge contract he now enjoys, yet doesn't earn.

    Most of us mere mortals would be pretty much shown the door.

    Difference this time is he doesn't have a leg to stand on to hold iowa hostage.

    Re: Kirk hasn't talked with Barta about job

    I really believe this is all internet smoke and mirrors. The coaching search has not been mentioned once on the sports radio stations here in MI today.

    If there were any truth to this, they would be talking about this big time.
