If Hawkeye fans are expecting huge changes to be made by Kirk Ferentz, prepare to be disappointed. Ferentz says he expects all assistant coaches to be back next season and he doesn’t think the Hawks are that far away from being a successful football team.
Let’s start with one of those assistants at the center of all the disappointment.
Offensive coordinator Greg Davis who came from Texas, and took over for Ken O’Keefe.
Davis clearly struggled in his first year at Iowa. Whether it was overall talent, scheme, whatever the Hawkeye offense took a nosedive in 2012.
Just how bad was the offense under Davis? The numbers don’t lie.
114th in the country in points per game. 117th in yards per game, just over 300, and 116th in yards per play. No matter how you slice it, Iowa was near the bottom of every offensive category. Ferentz though has faith in Davis.
