Ferentz contract update

Nothing new, UI athletics director Gary Barta said Thursday night.

Ferentz’s deal runs through the 2012 season. I’ll have to go back and check, but I think New Year’s Day bowl victories have brought raises and extensions into play nearly every time in the past.

“No new status yet,” Barta said. “Since he entered into recruiting, we haven’t spent any new time talking about it. We had great talks at the end of the season. It’s important but not urgent, so we just haven’t gotten any farther on it.”

I can vouch for Ferentz’s recruiting schedule. He visited OL Nolan MacMillan at The Hun School in Princeton, N.J., and then visited his parents in Toronto, Ontario, a few weeks back. Probably not a lot of time to vet a new deal while on the recruiting trail.



  1. “It’s important but not urgent.”

    I thought that was interesting.
