Ferentz listed among five worst coaches by Sports Illustrated

[ 0 ] July 8, 2013 |


Whatever happened to the Kirk Ferentz lovefest that swept through the media during the mid-2000s?

Stewart Mandel of Sports Illustrated listed his 10 best college football coaches – and his five worst.

Ferentz is on the latter.

As Mandel writes: The 2009 Orange Bowl proved an aberration in Ferentz’s otherwise unimpressive recent tenure. Take away that one 11-2 season and the Hawkeyes are 47-41 since 2005 under their $3.6 million-per-year coach.

To some, this might seem unfair. The Hawkeyes did go 9-4 in 2008 and won another eight games in 2010.

But it’s difficult to defend last season’s 4-8 finish.
