IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Iowa is reviewing the employment of a football assistant who is also the future son-in-law of coach Kirk Ferentz.
University spokesman Mark Braun said Thursday that athletic director Gary Barta is reviewing the employment of Tyler Barnes and would take appropriate action.
Braun said a report in The Gazette (http://bit.ly/WwOH3L ) about Barnes' hiring as administrative assistant for football raises questions about whether the school followed its policy on nepotism. He said Barnes and Ferentz have a relationship and the question now is how to handle it.
Barnes was hired without a search last year, and his temporary position was recently extended for a second year through January 2014.
Barnes had previously worked in the athletics department. He got engaged last year to Ferentz's 25-year-old daughter.
