The Iowa Hawkeyes had one of the most improbable seasons this year as they went 12-0, won the Big Ten West, and went to the Big Ten Conference championship game. The team fell to Michigan State, but they will still play in the Rose Bowl against Stanford on January 1.
Head coach Kirk Ferentz did a phenomenal job with the Hawkeyes this year and he was recognized for it. He won the 2015 Eddie Robinson Award for being the Football Writers Association of America coach of the year.
“It is rewarding to see the hard work of our entire coaching staff and every member of our football program being recognized on the national level,” Ferentz said. “I appreciate the acknowledgement of our accomplishments. I am honored to share this recognition with our staff, our players, and our great fans, and I am grateful to the University of Iowa for providing the necessary support for our success.”
Ferentz has given the Hawkeyes a season they will never be able to forget. I’m sure they would love to have another one just like this next year.
