The Patriots are losing a tight end coach. Iowa’s staff is gaining another Ferentz.
The Iowa Hawkeyes announced that Brian Ferentz, Kirk’s son, has joined their staff as an offensive line coach. Brian Ferentz spent four years on the Patriots staff, rising from a scouting assistant to offensive assistant to tight ends coach.
Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz has ties with Bill Belichick dating back to their days in Cleveland. Belichick almost always promotes from within, with the recent re-hire of Josh McDaniels a notable exception.
