Iowa, Ferentz announce contract extension

Sports

January 14th, 2022 by Chris Parks

IOWA CITY, Iowa — The University of Iowa announced today a contract extension for head football coach Kirk Ferentz through the 2029 season.  The announcement was made by Gary Barta, Henry B. and Patricia B. Tippie Director of Athletics Chair.

Ferentz just completed his 23rd season as Moon Family Head Football Coach. He is the longest-tenured active head football coach in the country.

“Kirk’s consistent leadership and success over 23 years has been amazing and appreciated as he has led our football program in a first-class manner,” said Barta. “His success over the past 23 years speaks for itself. He is an asset to the University of Iowa and our athletics department as a whole. The foundation of his program is strong, and the future looks bright.”

“Over his three decades with Iowa, coach Ferentz has led our football program with tremendous success and integrity, showcasing how athletics can be an enriching experience for our student-athletes and a corridor for many to learn about our remarkable university,” said UI President Barb Wilson. “This contract reflects our commitment to Kirk and Mary as members of our Hawkeye family.”

Ferentz is Iowa’s all-time winningest coach, surpassing Hayden Fry in 2019. After compiling a 10-4 record in 2021, Ferentz ranks fourth in Big Ten Conference history with 178 career wins and 110 conference victories. Iowa has finished ranked among the Top 25 four consecutive years, the second longest streak in program history.

“I am grateful to President Barb Wilson and Athletics Director Gary Barta for their continued support of our program,” said Ferentz. “I am proud of the success that we have achieved in Iowa City the past 23 years and look forward to many more years of competing at the highest level.”

The 2021 Hawkeye football team won 10 games for the seventh time under Ferentz’ leadership, and the 10th time in program history. The Hawkeye won the Big Ten West Division and earned a bid to the 2022 Vrbo Citrus Bowl, the 19th bowl bid of Ferentz’ career.

“This contract extension would not be possible without substantial private support,” said Barta. “The pandemic has presented Iowa Athletics with significant financial challenges. We are grateful to the many donors and fans who have contributed directly toward the success of Hawkeye football.”

Ferentz’s total annual compensation under the new agreement will be $7 million and includes a $500,000 base, $5.5 million in supplemental compensation and a $1 million longevity bonus. The contract expires on Jan. 31, 2030. His previous contract ran through the 2025 season. Ferentz and the members of his staff will also continue to be eligible for bonuses based on performance.

DNR urges caution on the ice after snowmobile, ATV go through on the Okobojis

Ag/Outdoor, News, Sports

January 14th, 2022 by Ric Hanson

(SPIRIT LAKE, Iowa 1/14/22) – The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is encouraging ice anglers and snowmobilers to use caution when going out on the ice after a snowmobile and an ATV broke through the ice on West Okoboji Lake and East Okoboji Lake Thursday night. The individuals were rescued by nearby anglers, and then were treated and released from the local hospital. Greg Harson, district supervisor for the Iowa Department of Natural Resources Law Enforcement Bureau, said he’s received a number of calls Friday from people planning to come to the Iowa Great Lakes and his message is that the ice quality isn’t as good as it has been in the past and to use caution if they plan to operate a snowmobile or atv on the lakes.

“There are a number of areas to avoid, like the points, ice heaves, the bridges and locations where geese are keeping the water open. The pressure ridges are opening and are hard to see. If we get skim ice then covered with snow, that can create a dangerous situation,” he said. “Geese are keeping a large area open on Spirit Lake out from the pump house, so be really careful if going out on Big Spirit this weekend.”

Harson stressed that there is always risk associated with going on any ice and that no ice is 100 percent safe. He said better quality ice is available away from the areas to avoid and encouraged everyone to check the ice thickness frequently and to bring a throwable floatation cushion, 50 feet of rope and a set of ice picks.

“The new snow is going to make identifying these hazards more challenging, and it’s also going to insulate the ice from the cold temperatures and slow its growth. We all look forward to this time of year to enjoy these lakes, but need to think twice and if it doesn’t look right or feel right, do not go out,” he said.
