A magical football season for Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz will conclude with a trip to Super Bowl 50 to watch his son, James, play for the Denver Broncos against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday in Santa Clara, California.
“He has gone from a day-to-day contract to now he has a week-to-week contract so he has improved his lot in life”, said Ferentz.
“That is the reality of the NFL. It is a temporary profession but why not chase it and why not got after it and I am really happy for him.”
Ferentz has been to the Super Bowl in past years.
He says just getting in and out of the stadium is a hassle and watching a game as a parent is a much different experience.
“When you are coaching you are working and when you are playing you are competing but when you are a parent it kind of takes the fun out of everything
because it is either good or bad. It’s tough.”
