UI reviewing hiring of Coach Ferentz's future son-in-law

Posted:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

The University of Iowa athletics department is reviewing the hiring of Iowa Coach Kirk Ferentz's future son-in-law.

The department is reviewing the employment of Tyler Barnes, who was hired to the temporary position in January of 2012. His position has been extended until 2014.

Barnes did previously work in the athletic department. He was engaged to Ferentz's daughter six months after he was hired. 

A report in the Gazette raised questions about whether the school followed its nepotism policy. The athletic department says it's reviewing the case and will take action if necessary.
