Gary Barta stated yesterday that he was "glad" he signed head coach Kirk Ferentz to a lucrative contract that extends to 2020. "When you sit down with a coach, you take a look at their body of work," Barta said. "There are different environments that you're evaluating. In Kirk's case, back in 2009, I think we finished seventh in the country. If you look what he had done competitively, academically, value, integrity and fit, all of those things, obviously I put together a package that I felt fit the person and the situation.

"Glad I did it and still glad I did it."

Barta went on to state that he is glad he did several other things in his life, and conveniently provided photographic evidence of these happy memories for the assembled press.
