    If Ferentz leaves, would Iowa consider McCarney?

    I wonder if Ferentz leaves Iowa for the Steelers job, would Iowa consider Dan McCarney? And would Mac consider Iowa? Interesting thought....

    Re: If Ferentz leaves, would Iowa consider McCarney?

    I really don't think he would be near the top of the list. I don't think there is much of a chance that Ferentz will be the next coach of the Steelers. If and when Ferentz leaves, I would like to see a coach similar to him (pro football, CEO type).

    As for Mac, the Minnesota job seems ideal for him (although I thought Michigan State would have been an even better fit). However, they just fired a "turn around" coach. I don't know if an AD views Mac as a coach that can take a program to the next level.

    Norm Parker may get the nod and McC could work for him. He may replasce Norm in three years then.

    Re: If Ferentz leaves, would Iowa consider McCarney?

    I think Mac is damaged goods right now. It would be difficult for any school to hire a coach with a record like he did last year and be able to convince your alumini that it's a good idea.

    His best bet is probably an assistant position at the college or pro level.

    Not a chance in hell.

    I bet Barta would try like hell to get Stoops back in IC, but I don't see that either, but you would probably hear Chuck Long's name mentioned.


    Although, do the Steelers really want a 6-7 college coach?

    Ferentz is going nowhere - they did a tremendous job prepping for Texas. He is fine right where he is at.

    No way mccarney is considered for a decent div 1 job. How could you sell that type of record after 12 years at a school?

    Re: If Ferentz leaves, would Iowa consider McCarney?

    I live near Iowa City and from what I hear (and I hear a lot, whether I want to or not) Ferentz will never leave on his own.

    He's got it too good. He recently donated $200,000 through the Ferentz Tust Fund to UI Hospitals and has gone before the Johnson County Board of Supervisors with neighbors to stop a new road from being built next to his house. Which to me says he's invested in staying a long time.

    I really believe his wants to have a legacy that rivals Hayden Fry and for which he has all the ingredients.

    In addition, with all the disappointment in Shmuckeye land this season I have NEVER heard one fan say they want him out.

    My two cents....

    Re: If Ferentz leaves, would Iowa consider McCarney?

    A hawk fan called the fox national radio show last night about 1 or 1:30. He was complaining about Ferentz not being able to beat good teams and winning the big games. Chris Landry shot back at him and said that Ferentz was a great coach. I think the called wanted Ferentz gone.

    Re: If Ferentz leaves, would Iowa consider McCarney?

    My dad and brothers are Hawkeye fans, and they don't want Ferentz to leave. They're excited about the future of Iowa football because of the kids he's been bringing in over the last 2-3 years and especially after the way Ferentz prepped for the Texas game. From what I've been hearing, Ferentz was a changed man the past month and made his team hungry again. And the way they played Texas, it showed. I don't think Ferentz is ready to leave, especially considering everything he has coming back next year and the kids he has coming in. If he coaches them the way he coached the past month, as he said he would do from now on, Iowa could be a dangerous team in the next few years.

    Re: If Ferentz leaves, would Iowa consider McCarney?

    Saw on TV just this morning that Ferentz is the 3rd or 4th highest paid U. coach in the country. I would say he stays where he is.

    Re: If Ferentz leaves, would Iowa consider McCarney?

    The latest spin out of Iowa City saying that Kirkie had a boot camp mentality in their bowl prep and that they were really focused for this game says a lot. Iowa is paying Kirkie over 3 million bucks to make sure they are focused for every game, including Ind. and NW.
    I think his elite status took a hit with this season and the AD should remind him that he is "the state's highest paid employee". He not going anywhere, however, and DM would never be considerd at Minnesota. Steven F. Austin, maybe.

    I agree on Mac..no way Minnesota will trade. Mason had a better overall and bowl record than Mac. They will have to go with a fresh face.

    Really? who reported it? I saw on KNWA around a month ago when they were hyping Nutt that Ferentz was the highest paid in the nation at over 4 mil. ...media, whom to trust.

    Hope you're having a great New Year! I was trying to come up with a new years resolution but couldn't think of anything. Don't have a weight problem, eat right and quit smoking 162 days ago. Guess I could focus on a relationship.....nahhh. Rather look for another harley!
