Ferentz tells CBS what he told us locals two weeks ago

[ 8 ] December 18, 2011 |

For those who didn’t believe Kirk  Ferentz when he said two weeks ago that he was going to be Iowa’s football coach in 2012, here’s what CBS NFL expert Charley Casserly said Sunday regarding Ferentz-to-Chiefs speculation:

“One name rumored for the job that will not be there is Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz,” Casserly told James Brown Sunday. “I talked to him this week and he’s staying at Iowa. I would not be totally surprised if Romeo Crennel is the head coach next year.”

That quote is on the cbssports.com web site, and it’s the first comment from Ferentz since the Chiefs fired Todd Haley.

Ferentz attended retired Hawkeye defensive coordinator Norm Parker’s press conference in Iowa City on Friday, then left without taking questions.

Here’s what Ferentz said when asked on Dec. 4 if he was a candidate at Penn State:

“Am I candidate? I’ll be coaching at Iowa next year,” Ferentz said. “Year 14 coming up. As long as Iowa will have me, I’ll be here.”
