Norm Parker Live Friday

Dec. 15, 2011

IOWA CITY, Iowa — University of Iowa head football coach Kirk Ferentz and defensive coordinator Norm Parker will gather with media Friday, Dec. 16, beginning at 2 p.m. in the Player’s Auditorium of the Hayden Fry Football Complex.

Parker announced his retirement from football Sunday, Dec. 11, and he will visit with local, regional and national media for the first time since his announcement. The press conference will be available live from start to finish on Hawkeye All-Access, the multi-media portal inside, the official world wide web of the Iowa Hawkeyes.

The 2011 Insight Bowl on Dec. 30 will be the final game for Parker in a coaching career that began in 1965 as head coach at St. John’s (Mich.) High School. For the past 13 seasons, Parker has coordinated the Hawkeye defense — perennially one of the most physical, hard-hitting untis in the nation.

In addition to live coverage of each of Ferentz’s weekly press conferences, subscribers to Hawkeye All-Access also have exclusive access to the weekly visits with the media of UI basketball coaches Fran McCaffery and Lisa Bluder, live and exclusive coverage of Ferentz’s, McCaffery’s and Bluder’s postgame media conference after home events, live and exclusive coverage of the weekly “Hawk Talk” radio shows of Iowa’s head football, men’s basketball and women’s basketball coaches, and the live play-by-play of every Iowa football game featuring the Hawkeye Radio Network’s Gary Dolphin, Ed Podolak and Rob Brooks, and all men’s basketball, women’s basketball and wrestling events.
