Iowa Football Club, coach Kirk Ferencs agrees to contract extension

The longest-lived college football coach has agreed to a deal that will keep him in place for several more years to come.

The school announced Friday that Iowa’s Kirk Ferentz, who has led the Hawkeyes since the 1999 season, has agreed to extend his four-year contract through the 2029 season. His previous contract was set to expire in 2025.

“Kirk’s leadership and continued success over the course of 23 years have been amazing and appreciated because he has guided our football program in a first-class fashion,” athletic director Gary Barta said via the school’s press release. “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.”
