100-73 2012 Record:
4-6 2011 Salary:
Unlike Edsall, Ferentz has a long and relatively solid history at Iowa. Like Edsall, however, Ferentz's team has really struggled recently. There are similarities off the field as well, as Ferentz's massive contract - he's signed through 2019 with $27 million yet to be paid - make it difficult to get rid of the under-performing coach. In fact, firing Ferentz may be damn near impossible: Iowa would have to pay him around $20 million not to coach. It means that Iowa would lose about 5% of its annual revenue through 2019, but fans forced to watch the Hawkeyes recently will likely say it's a price worth paying. (AP Photo) More From Forbes
