The outside firm report after complaints from former players discovered "the programs rules perpetuated racial or cultural biases and diminished the value of cultural diversity. It also allowed some current and former staff members to demean and bully others. "The Iowa president vows the climate and culture must and will change within our football program. Ferentz has vowed to do a better job so everybody leaves his program knowing they were treated fairly and given an equal opportunity. An interesting aside was the staff talking down George Kittle to scouts who is a TE for the 49's and a 2 time pro bowler. Pretty disappointed in Ferentz that he allowed this to go on for years as he has been there for 21 seasons.
