Ferentz on Coach of the Year watch list


IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- The Iowa Hawkeyes announced on Wednesday that Kirk Ferentz is on the watch list for the 2010 Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Award.

Ferentz, who is in his 12th year with the Hawkeyes, has guided his team to a 6-2 record and a 15th place ranking in the Associated Press College Football poll this week.  Ferentz has a career record of 99-78 with the Hawkeyes.

Ferentz was named Big Ten Coach of the Year in 2002, 2004 and 2009 along with National Coach of the Year honors in 2002.

The Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Award was first handed out in 1976 when it was given to Vince Dooley of Georgia.  An Iowa head coach has never won the award.

The Hawkeyes face the Indiana Hoosiers in Bloomington, Indiana on Saturday.  Kick-off is scheduled for 11:00 am and the game will be televised on the Big Ten network.
