Iowa football, Coach Kirk Ferentz agree to contract extension

College football’s longest-tenured head coach has agreed to a deal that will keep him in place for several more years to come.

Iowa’s Kirk Ferentz, who has led the Hawkeyes since the 1999 season, has agreed to a four-year contract extension that will run through the 2029 season, the school announced Friday. His previous contract was set to expire in 2025. 

“Kirk’s consistent leadership and success over 23 years has been amazing and appreciated as he has led our football program in a first-class manner,” athletic director Gary Barta said via the school’s press release. “His success over the past 23 years speaks for itself. He is an asset to the University of Iowa and our athletics department as a whole. The foundation of his program is strong, and the future looks bright.”
