Football notebook: Ferentz comments on layoffs

IOWA CITY, Iowa – Two Big Ten West coaches have already lost their jobs this season.

The longest-serving coach in the division knows it’s just college football life now.

“No, not at all,” Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said Tuesday when asked if he was surprised. “Disappointed but not surprised.”

Wisconsin coach Paul Chryst was fired Sunday morning, a day after the Badgers lost to Illinois. Nebraska coach Scott Frost was fired on September 11th.

Chryst was 67-26 during his time with the Badgers, but the change was made anyway.
