IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa football coach Kirk Ferentz is contributing $500,000 to the Iowa Football Legacy Campaign, which is financing new football facilities.
The University of Iowa Foundation announced the donation Friday by Kirk and Mary Ferentz, noting it’s part of $34 million raised for the campaign, which is $1 million from its goal.
The University of Iowa Department of Intercollegiate Athletics is providing the remainder of the $55 million campaign.
The campaign is financing an already-completed indoor practice facility and a 76,000-square-foot Football Operations Center, expected to be completed in summer 2014.
The operations center includes a strength training area, meeting rooms, locker room, offices and exhibit space.
Kirk and Mary Ferentz have donated repeatedly to the university, including gifts to the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and to medical research.
