MOON FAMILY HEAD FOOTBALL COACH

Moon Family Head Football Coach Kirk Ferentz is in his 24th year as head football coach at the University of Iowa, and his 33rd season overall at the University. Ferentz signed a contract extension following the 2021 season, extending his agreement with Iowa through the 2029 season.

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.

Under Ferentz’ leadership the Iowa football program has earned 19 bowl game invitations since 2001. That success has been achieved with strong commitments to the program, the University of Iowa, and the ideals that represent Hawkeye football – hard work, determination, player development and character, on and off the field.

In 2021 Ferentz led Iowa to its second Big Ten West Division title (2015), posting a 7-2 conference record and 10-4 overall mark. The Hawkeyes won 10 games for the seventh time under Ferentz and earned an invitation to the Vrbo Citrus Bowl, Iowa’s 12th January bowl game and 19th post-season invitation overall in the Ferentz era. Iowa was ranked 23rd in the final 2021 rankings, the fourth straight season the Hawkeyes have ended the year in the Top 25.

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.
