IOWA CITY, Iowa — As he does every Friday morning before a home football game, Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz spoke at the Johnson County I-Club Breakfast inside the Sheraton Hotel. This week, he discussed the 18th-ranked Hawkeyes’ upcoming game against No. 5 Michigan State.
During his speech, Ferentz announced that defensive coordinator Norm Parker will be inside the Kinnick Stadium press box for Saturday’s game, which is scheduled to start at 2:30 p.m. CST. Parker had his right foot amputated due to complications with diabetes last month. The only game he has coached this season was the opener against Eastern Illinois on Sept. 4.
Ferentz was introduced this week by Iowa assistant wrestling coach Terry Brands.
