Ferentz On Coach Of The Year Watch List

Nov. 3, 2010

IOWA CITY, Iowa – University of Iowa Football Coach Kirk Ferentz is one of seven coaches who have been put on the official Watch List for the 2010 Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Award. The announcement was made by the award’s Foundation in Atlanta, GA.

Ferentz is in his 12th year with the Hawkeyes and has guided the 2010 squad to a 6-2 record and a 15th place national ranking in this week’s Associated Press poll. He has a career record of 99-78 and still has his current squad in contention for the Big Ten title and possible Rose Bowl berth.

Ferentz has been named Big Ten Coach of the Year three times (2002, 04, 09) and was National Coach of the Year in 2002.

The Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Award was first given in 1976 when it went to Georgia’s Vince Dooley. Iowa’s head coach has never won the award.

Ferentz and his 2010 Hawkeyes face the Indiana Hoosiers at Bloomington Saturday (11 a.m. CDT) on the Big Ten Network.
