IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Kirk Ferentz has a new contract that will likely keep him with Iowa through the rest of his career. Lew Reeve Jersey Store .Iowa announced Tuesday that it has signed Ferentz to a six-year contract extension through the 2025 season.Ferentz, who is in his 18th season leading the Hawkeyes, will see his salary jump to $4.5 million per year under the new deal, with performance bonuses yet to be detailed.Ferentz said he doesnt consider early 2026, which is when his contract ends, to be the end date on his tenure in Iowa City.Im not big on caps of any sort. Well just take it week by week and year by year, said Ferentz. Ive never felt better, physically and mentally.Ferentzs last contract, which was for 10 years at roughly $40 million, was set to expire in early 2020. Ferentzs massive buyout was subject to scrutiny under his previous deal, but a series of changes made by Ferentz -- earning him the nickname New Kirk -- led to a 12-2 season and a trip to the Rose Bowl.Athletic director Gary Barta said that the buyout in Ferentzs new deal is similar to the previous one, though he didnt offer further specifics.My desire is for Kirk to retire at Iowa, Barta said.Ferentz and Oklahoma Bob Stoops are the nations longest-tenured coaches, having been hired within days of each other in 1999. What is remarkable about Iowas decision to retain Ferentz until the middle of the next decade is that, just 18 months ago, many Hawkeyes fans wanted to see him fired.Iowa stumbled through a 7-6 season in 2014, capped by an embarrassing loss to Tennessee in a bowl game. Ferentz was never at risk of losing his job -- partly because of a buyout that wouldve cost the Hawkeyes well over $10 million -- but he promised to take a fresh look at how he ran his program anyway.Ferentz unexpectedly promoted quarterback C.J. Beathard ahead of successful incumbent Jake Rudock ahead of spring practice in 2015. Rudock left for Michigan, but Beathard blossomed into a star in leading the Hawkeyes to a school-record 12-0 start. The Hawkeyes embraced trick plays and alternate uniforms last season, things the once-conservative Ferentz shied away from in the past.Ferentz has also gone away from his propensity to redshirt as many freshmen as possible, playing six of them in last weeks 45-21 win over Miami (Ohio) to open the season.What stands out about coach Ferentz is his ability to bounce back, said cornerback Desmond King, whose relationship with Ferentz play a role in his decision to return for his senior season. Hes very resilient.Ferentz and his staff have ramped up recruiting efforts as well. The Hawkeyes, bolstered by a new football-only facility that rivals any in the country, currently have a top-20 class lined up for signing day in February.Any time you demonstrate stability ... thats a good thing, Ferentz said.Ferentz will surpass Hayden Fry, who he worked with for years as an assistant, as the longest-tenured coach in Iowa history if he stays through the end of his new deal. Fry coached for 20 seasons at Iowa.There were two great coaches here, (Ferentz) and (Hayden) Fry. Hes an amazing coach, an amazing guy to look up to. He does all the small things right, linebacker Josey Jewell said.---Follow Luke Meredith on Twitter at Larry Jordan Jersey Store .
