Angry Iowa Football Fans Want Ferentz to Fire His Son ASAP
After getting hammered by Ohio State 54-10, Iowa Head Coach Kirk Ferentz is starting to feel Iowa fans furry as frustrations boil over. But is it enough to fire the team's Offensive Coordinator - Ferentz's son Brian?
College Football Nerds know the score. Iowa fans have become accustomed to Hawkeye teams competing for Big Ten championships. They certainly get the coaching demands and tough league play, but they're not out of bounds for asking the hard-hitting questions about what's happening with this season's weak offense under Brian Ferentz's direction.
After all, Ferentz is being well compensated, but the offense is awful under his watch. Saturday against Ohio State, the Hawkeyes turned the ball over six times, failed to score an offensive touchdown, allowed five sacks, and mustered a meager 158 yards of offense.
Hawkeye fans are disappointed by the lackluster offensive results and accuse Coach Ferentz of nepotism with his son's role as offensive coordinator. That's a harsh charge for any family and profession, much less one as public and essential to an entire state such as Iowa.
