MOON FAMILY HEAD FOOTBALL COACH
Moon Family Head Football Coach Kirk Ferentz is in his 26th year as the head football coach at the University of Iowa. The position of UI head football coach was endowed in 2021 by Will and Renee Moon. The Bettendorf, Iowa, couple are UI alumni and longtime Hawkeye supporters.
Iowa’s win at in-state rival Iowa State on Sept. 9, 2023, was his 200th victory as a college head coach. With Iowa’s victory over Michigan State on Sept. 30, 2023, Ferentz surpassed Amos Alonzo Stagg for third place in Big Ten victories with 116, and his career mark in Big Ten games stands at 122-85.
Ferentz and the Hawkeyes closed the 2022 season with a 21-0 win over Kentucky in the TransPerfect Music City Bowl as Ferentz claimed the 10th bowl win of his career. That mark ties former Penn State coach Joe Paterno for most bowl wins in league history. Nationally, Ferentz is one of 19 coaches with 10 bowl victories.
Overall, Ferentz has a 196-119 record with the Hawkeyes, ranking third all-time in wins among Big Ten coaches. As a head coach Ferentz holds a 208-140 record in 28 seasons.
In addition to serving as Iowa’s head coach for 25 seasons, Ferentz has been a member of the Iowa coaching staff for 34 seasons. His most recent contract extension extended his agreement with Iowa through the 2029 season.
KINNICK STADIUM: THE HOME OF THE HAWKEYES
Home football weekends for the University of Iowa are more than just a Saturday afternoon football game. Fans of the Hawkeyes from all parts of the state of Iowa, the Midwest , and locations as far away as New Jersey, Florida, Arizona and Texas converge on Iowa City for an entire weekend of activities on the Iowa campus. Tailgating activities begin as the sun comes up and continue all day as Iowa fans support their Hawkeyes, usually under brilliant skies that provide the perfect setting for college football in the Heartland.
Iowa home games are played in historic Kinnick Stadium, named after 1939 Heisman Trophy winner Nile Kinnick. With a capacity of 69,250 Kinnick ranks as one of the 20 largest college-owned stadiums in the nation.
The most recent renovation to Kinnick Stadium was completed in time for the 2019 season, thanks to the Kinnick Edge campaign. The newly-constructed north end zone features new restrooms, concourses, concessions, video board, and premium seating in the Ted Pacha Family Club and the Clausen Family Ironmen Boxes. This $89 million project has helped energize Kinnick on game days, and has created another unique space for non-game day events throughout the year.
