 IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - The University of Iowa says an administrative assistant who is the future son-in-law of Coach Kirk Ferentz will no longer report to the football program to avoid nepotism concerns.
Athletic director Gary Barta said Thursday that Tyler Barnes would now be supervised by Rick Klatt, who oversees the department's marketing and media relations. He said Barnes had been a model employee, but the change in supervision was necessary because Barnes is planning to marry Ferentz's 25-year-old daughter in July.
The announcement comes after The Gazette (http://bit.ly/WwOH3L) reported Ferentz didn't disclose the relationship earlier to Barta.
University records show that Ferentz last fall sought and received permission to extend Barnes' temporary position for a second year through Jan. 2014. Barta says a university review will determine Barnes' ``long-term employment options.''
