Court To Rule in U of Iowa Public Records Case


July 13th, 2012 by admin

The Iowa Supreme Court will decide whether the University of Iowa violated the state’s open records law by withholding documents about its investigation of a 2007 assault involving football players.

The court plans to rule Friday in a case that’s been closely followed by the news media.

The Iowa City Press-Citizen filed the lawsuit in 2008 after the university refused to release hundreds of records related to its handling of an assault of a female athlete by former Hawkeyes Abe Satterfield and Cedric Everson.

A judge ordered the records released in 2009. The university appealed, contending they are confidential under federal student privacy law.

Both players were convicted of misdemeanor charges. An investigation faulted the university’s response, which cost the school’s top lawyer and dean of students their jobs.

McCaffery signs 7-year deal with Iowa


July 10th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa coach Fran McCaffery has signed a new seven-year deal to remain with the Hawkeyes. Iowa athletic director Gary Barta said Tuesday that McCaffery will be paid at least $1.66 million a year with a base salary of $1.3 million starting next season. McCaffery could make up to $1.86 million per season if the Hawkeyes reach the NCAA tournament. McCaffery left Siena to join the Hawkeyes before the 2010 season. His original contract was for six years and started at roughly $1.1 million per year. Iowa won 18 games and reached the NIT in 2011-12. The Hawkeyes return three starters next season and bring in a freshman class featuring prized recruits Adam Woodbury and Mike Gesell.
