Big 10 Coaches Respond

Big 10 Coaches Respond

Big Ten football coaches say there aren’t very many places where they can unload frustrations about fans, reporters or anyone else without paying a price.

On Tuesday’s weekly call with reporters, Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said that about the only person a coach can vent to in confidence is his wife. And he joked that that isn’t a sure thing.

The sports website Deadspin this week released a two-year-old recording of Nebraska coach Bo Pelini complaining after a game about Cornhusker fans and news media. Pelini said he thought the conversation was private. He also has apologized.

Michigan State’s Mark Dantonio said venting is a necessity. Ferentz said he tells his players to assume they’re always being recorded and coaches have to do the same.
