Kirk Ferentz  

Kirk Ferentz is in his 20th year as head football coach at the University of Iowa, and his 29th season overall at the University. With Iowa's 27-20 win over Boston College in the 2017 Pinstripe Bowl, Ferentz recorded win No. 143 as Iowa's head coach, matching Hayden Fry as the winningest football coach in program history. With the start of the 2018 season, Ferentz will match Fry as the longest tenured head football coach in Iowa history, as Fry also led the Hawkeyes for 20 seasons (1979-98). Ferentz is the longest tenured head football coach in the nation. Ferentz and Fry are believed to be the only head coaches to lead a Division I football program for 20 years, consecutively. Under Ferentz' leadership the Iowa football program in 2017 made its 15th bowl game appearance since 2001. That success has been achieved with strong commitments to the program, the University of Iowa, and the ideals that represent Hawkeye football - hard work, determination, player development and character, on and off the field. Ferentz has guided the Hawkeyes to eight wins or more in 10 seasons since 2002.

FAMOUS QUOTES

    What the hell are we talking about? It's stupid. I have no idea. Plus, I do know this, I saw across the field (Nebraska) had a little clap routine for third downs or something, I don’t know. This is stuff in my 22nd year, I've never heard or been thinking about that. Never heard of it. It's football. Maybe they need to change their cadence, if it was interfering with the cadence.

    Now if a player on the field was doing it to try to (disrupt the snap), I get that. But what are we talking about? The next thing you know, we're going to be treating this like golf...(simulates small hand clap) where nobody is allowed to say anything. Sorry, no.

    What are they talking about? It's football. It's football. Are they OK with how I dressed today? Should I be changing my pants or (into) a different shirt? What are we talking about? I'm distracted right now.
    ...from Iowa vs. Nebraska on 11/27/2020

    So if you get a guy that has got that ability, it’s a really good thing at the end of the day, centers are the MVPs. Quarterbacks think they are big shots, but if they don’t get the ball, they are going nowhere. You can’t play a game without a center, so it’s just a really important position.
    11/17/2020... - Press conference notes

    Figured we'd take Floyd with us and leave the timeouts here.
    ...from Iowa vs. Minnesota on 11/13/2020 - Iowa called all of it's 3 timeouts at the end of the game after Minnesota called timeout to try and score down 35-0.

    As long as I have a voice at Iowa — hopefully I'll have it for a while — we're not playing out here (in Arizona and California) non-league games. If they want to come to our place, that's fine. But traveling out here and doing the time change, and then you know we had a two-hour rain delay at Arizona State, we're not going down that road again, I can assure you that.
    12/26/2019... - Discussing playing regular season games on the west coast (as opposed to bowl games)

    It's kind of like losing a star player. When you lose one, other people need to step up and push through it.
    9/18/2010... - About coaching without Norm Parker

    Like a lot of people who get into coaching, I was impacted by the people in my life. Certainly my father (John) who coached me in youth league baseball, and my high school coach, Joe Moore, were mentors and major influences.

    This is like the most overrated holiday in the world, and I haven't seen too many of them. I just hope nobody bangs any pots or pans for the guys that are sleeping.
    - Referring to New Year's Eve prior to a bowl game

    You guys are always asking me about why I like to be at Iowa, ... I don't read the Internet, as you know, but I get stuff handed to me by people in the office. I'm reading about Michigan as much as I can, and boy, it's a pretty tough audience up there.

    I have no problem with two teams claiming to be national champions at the end of the year. But that's our society. We're dying to know who the champion is. Heaven forbid we have two. That would be socialist, right

    After that game, we probably would have signed on for any bowl that would have taken us. I probably would have signed in blood that evening. I'm glad that we didn't, but at that point there were all kinds of things racing through all of our minds.
    ...from Iowa vs. Florida on 1/2/2006 - Prior to the 2006 Outback Bowl, referencing the loss to Northwestern earlier in the season

    Recruiting at Iowa has never been easy, and I don't think it ever will be. Our biggest challenge has always been to get people to visit our campus. If we can get them here, I feel like we give ourselves a chance because we do have a lot to offer.
