This morning news came out that Kirk Ferentz had signed a new contract:
Can confirm the Ferentz new contract and extension. I hinted last night that he would retire from Iowa. He will retire from Iowa.— marcmorehouse (@marcmorehouse) September 6, 2016
This is not that surprising, considering there was only 3 years left on his previously ridiculous contract. Yeah, it finally ran out. Whew, right? Well, certainly Barta learned his lesson, and it won’t be be for something ridiculous like 10 years again.
Six year extension through the 2025 season. Assistants are tied into this.— marcmorehouse (@marcmorehouse) September 6, 2016
Well, Ok, I think I can still be ok with that. At least the buyout won’t be nearly as insane this time around.
Barta: There's a buyout and it's similar to previous.— marcmorehouse (@marcmorehouse) September 6, 2016
This is where we are now:
Kirk Ferentz buyout yesterday: $8.4 million.— Honorary Boat Rower (@PV_GIA) September 6, 2016
Kirk Ferentz buyout today (if contract is unchanged): $31.5 million.
It's like we never learn
I need a drink.
Just go ahead and mark ISU as a win.
