Brian Ferentz      Iowa Wikipedia Hawkeye Sports Profile 

Position(s): OL
Year signed with Iowa: 2001

HIGH SCHOOL: Brian Ferentz attended City High School and lived in or near Iowa City, Iowa. He started on both offense and defense in his two seasons at Iowa City High. He helped City High advance to the state playoffs as a junior and senior, including the semifinals during his senior season. He was named First team all-state as a senior and honorable mention as a junior, and named to the Des Moines Register Elite all-state team as a senior. He was a team captain and earned first team all-conference as a senior and second team as a junior. He was selected to the 2000 Iowa Shrine Bowl. He was also a four year varsity letterman in wrestling.

COLLEGE: He played both offensive guard and center during his Iowa career. He earned honorable mention All-Big Ten honors as a senior in 2005 and was Academic All-Big Ten in 2003. He was a team captain as a senior and played on Iowa teams that were among the most successful in school history. Ferentz was part of two Big Ten championship teams (2002 and 2004). He started at center in every game as a senior in 2005. He started eight games at right guard in 2004, and Iowa won each of the eight games he started after he missed the first four games of the year due to injury. He was a member of Iowa’s Leadership Council and as a senior was the recipient of the Hayden Fry “Extra Heartbeat Award”. He was recognized with the “Next Man In” award as a junior.

He was selected to participate in the 2006 Hula Bowl.

PROFESSIONAL: He signed a free agent contract with Atlanta and was a member of the Falcons practice squad in 2006. He also signed with the New Orleans Saints throughout their 2007 training camp, but did not make the active roster.

OTHER: He spent four years with the New England Patriots (3 seasons as offensive quality control) and one season as TE coach, from 2008-2011). He was hired by his father (Kirk Ferentz) as the Hawkeyes' offensive line coach in 2012, but reported directly to the athletic director, Gary Barta, to avoid nepotism laws. He ascended to offensive coordinator in 2017 after the retirement of Greg Davis. Highlights include a shocking upset blowout win over #3 Ohio State in 2017, and a decisive 49-24 victory over USC in the 2019 Holiday Bowl. In 2023, after two poor offensive seasons, he was not retained.

Born 3/28/1983 and is 41 years old.

All Conference: Honorable Mention (2005), Academic (2003)
