Kirk Ferentz Speaks on Iowa’s Culture:Ferentz assumed his program’s culture was healthy. Yet, he admitted to X&O Labs, “you coach 21 years and think you have a grip on things, but you don’t.” The truth is the culture Coach Ferentz installed decades prior had rarely been reviewed, re-committed or re-evaluated—which led to the perfect storm of what happened last summer. In an exclusive interview with X&O Labs’ Mike Kuchar, Iowa’s head coach Kirk Ferentz reveals what happened behind the scenes as the controversy first unfolded. But, more importantly, he’s sharing what steps he’s taking now to build the healthy culture he thought he had. Go here for more.
