Law Firm’s Report On Hawkeye Football Program Released

A Kansas City law firm has concluded its report on alleged racial disparities in the Iowa football program.

The report says the Iowa football program adheres to a philosophy that mandates conformity and discourages individualism. Forty-five current and 29 former players were among those interviewed by the law firm and many felt the foundation of discipline allowed some coaches to bully and demean athletes and many black players felt targeted. Athletic director Gary Barta and head coach Kirk Ferentz will address the findings at a news conference Thursday.
