Iowa coach Ferentz suspends son from team

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — University of Iowa football coach Kirk Ferentz has suspended his son from the Hawkeyes football team after he was cited for drinking underage.

James Ferentz, a freshman offensive lineman, was cited by Iowa City Police for drinking underage early Friday morning.

In a statement, Kirk Ferentz said he was extremely disappointed with his son’s behavior. He says his son is suspended from all team activities for an indefinite time and will also be required to attend counseling sessions and perform community service for the next six weeks.

Kirk Ferentz says the fact that it is his son being punished “only complicates an already tough situation.”
