The Chiefs are now the only team in the NFL without a coach as the Raiders made Tom Cable their new head man today. While they continue to intensify their search for a new head coach, one name that won’t be coming to town is that of Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz.
It’s no secret that Ferentz’s name has come up in NFL circles as a candidate to talk with the team, but sources today say that it won’t happen.
Ferentz on Wednesday told ESPN.com senior writer Ivan Maisel on that he’s “not an entrant in the race.” He also told Maisel that having his son, James, a redshirt freshman offensive lineman, in the program is a “big factor” in his career outlook.
It seems now that Todd Haley, who is the Cardinals offensive coordinator is clearly the front runner in the case to be the teams new head coach.
