Iowa rehires Kirk Ferentz’s son-in-law for staff position


April 29th, 2016 by Chris Parks

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa has rehired the son-in-law of football coach Kirk Ferentz to a staff position three years after he departed following questions of nepotism.

Iowa announced Friday that Tyler Barnes would be the team’s new director of recruiting. The 30-year-old Barnes had been working as an assistant at Vanderbilt since 2013.

Barnes was hired in 2012 to work as an entry-level assistant for the Hawkeyes when he was dating Ferentz’s daughter, Joanne.

Ferentz pushed to extend Barnes’ temporary position for a second year without disclosing to athletic director Gary Barta or others that Barnes was his future son-in-law. That avoided a public search for the position.

The university later moved the supervision of Barnes outside the football program, and he left Iowa for Vanderbilt months later.

Ferentz’s son, Brian, also is an assistant.


Iowa State guard Naz Mitrou-Long granted hardship waiver


April 29th, 2016 by Chris Parks

AMES, Iowa (AP) – Iowa State guard Naz Mitrou-Long has been granted a hardship waiver by the Big 12, making him eligible to play as expected in 2016-17.

Mitrou-Long played eight games as a senior last year before lingering pain from offseason hip surgeries became too much to overcome. Mitrou-Long, who averaged 12 points a game in 2015-16, ended his season at the eight-game point so he’d be eligible for the hardship waiver.

Mitrou-Long’s return will bolster one of the nation’s deepest backcourts. Star point guard Monte Morris made the somewhat surprising decision to return to Iowa State, and Matt Thomas emerged as a key player last season in Mitrou-Long’s absence. The Cyclones are also expected to bring in coveted junior college point guard Donovan Jackson.

Iowa State’s Bill Fennelly, sued by ex-star, defends self


April 29th, 2016 by Chris Parks

AMES, Iowa (AP) – Bill Fennelly is defending himself and his coaching style, two weeks after the long-time Iowa State women’s basketball coach was sued by a former star player for race discrimination and retaliation.

Fennelly met with the media for the first time since Nikki Moody filed a lawsuit in state district court that seeks unspecified damages. Moody, a standout point guard from 2012-15, says she was repeatedly called a “thug” and labeled a selfish player

Fennelly declined to address her allegations Friday, citing pending litigation. But Fennelly says he’s not the person he’s been accused of being. He adds that he won’t change the way he coaches because he’s motivated to make players accountable and to do the right thing.
