IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — University of Iowa football coach Kirk Ferentz has disbanded an alumni advisory committee.

The committee was created after a 2020 investigation found evidence of racial bias against Black players in a program and bullying behavior by some of his assistants.

The Gazette reports that Ferentz’ decision to end the committee came shortly after its leader, former offensive lineman David Porter, suggested it was time for Iowa to part ways with Ferentz.

Ferentz said he had decided to overhaul the committee last fall before Porter made his comment to other committee members in a text message.
