Iowa football coach Kirk Ferentz guests on this week’s Mike Hlas Podcast.

Ferentz discusses a variety of topics including how he made changes without changing who he was after the Hawkeyes’ disappointing finish to the 2014 season. He talks about hiring the services of a business that specializes in media and presentation training.

He discusses what it is about football that he loves, and what he would do if he were forced to take a one-year sabbatical from his job.

And, he talks about the day he went to a Bruce Springsteen concert.

The Hlas Podcast is sponsored by FRYfest, a celebration of all things Hawkeye that will be held in the Iowa River Landing at the Coralville Marriott on Sept. 2. Go to FRYfest.com for details.
