Hawks' Ferentz given 10 year contract extension

Posted:

IOWA CITY(KWWL)--The University of Iowa announced today it will extend Kirk Ferentz's contract with the intention that he will be like his predecessor, Hayden Fry, and serve as the head coach of the UI's football program for more than two decades.  UI officials expect the contract to be signed Friday. 

Ferentz will begin his 12th season as Iowa's football head coach Saturday when the nationally ranked Hawkeyes entertain Eastern Illinois at historic Kinnick Stadium.  The extension puts Ferentz under contract with the UI through the 2020 college football season.

Ferentz's total annual compensation under the new agreement will be $3,675,000.  This total is comprised of annual base income of $1.87 million, an increase of $250,000, and annual supplemental compensation of $1.48 million, an increase of $80,000. Ferentz will also receive annual longevity compensation beginning in 2010.  That amount starts at $325,000 and increases annually.
