Salary for son of coach under fire
The son of Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz beat out 100 other applicants for a position on his father’s staff and was given a salary $15,000 higher than a second assistant coach hired at the same time, according to documents released Friday.
Brian Ferentz was given a starting annual salary of $202,400 when he was hired away from the New England Patriots in February.
That placed the 28-year-old’s compensation in the top half for offensive line coaches in the Big Ten, according to hiring documents released in response to an open records request by The Associated Press.
