Kirk Ferentz Statement

Aug. 20, 2007

IOWA CITY — Two University of Iowa football players have been suspended indefinitely following their arrests Sunday. Sophomore wide receivers Dominique Douglas and Anthony Bowman were taken into custody by University of Iowa police. They were charged with unauthorized use of a credit card and were later released on their own recognizance.

Iowa Head Football Coach Kirk Ferentz had the following statement:

“I am aware of the accusations that have been made against two members of the football program. Both student-athletes have been suspended indefinitely from participation in all team activities.

“The accusations are serious and, if proven to be true, are extremely disappointing for everyone associated with the University of Iowa and our football program. As always, we will work with the appropriate individuals and entities on and off campus as this matter works its way through the legal system.

“As is often the case in matters of this nature, I am aware of inconsistencies in what may or may not have taken place. We need to let the legal process run its course.”

Ferentz will not comment further, at this time, on the matter.
