IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Kirk Ferentz has a new contract that will likely keep him with Iowa through the rest of his career.Iowa announced Tuesday that it has signed Ferentz to a six-year contract extension through the 2025 season.Ferentz, who is in his 18th season leading the Hawkeyes, will see his salary jump to $4.5 million per year under the new deal, with performance bonuses yet to be detailed.Ferentz said he doesnt consider early 2026, which is when his contract ends, to be the end date on his tenure in Iowa City.Im not big on caps of any sort. Well just take it week by week and year by year, said Ferentz. Ive never felt better, physically and mentally.Ferentzs last contract, which was for 10 years at roughly $40 million, was set to expire in early 2020. Ferentzs massive buyout was subject to scrutiny under his previous deal, but a series of changes made by Ferentz -- earning him the nickname New Kirk -- led to a 12-2 season and a trip to the Rose Bowl.Athletic director Gary Barta said that the buyout in Ferentzs new deal is similar to the previous one, though he didnt offer further specifics.My desire is for Kirk to retire at Iowa, Barta said.Ferentz and Oklahoma Bob Stoops are the nations longest-tenured coaches, having been hired within days of each other in 1999. What is remarkable about Iowas decision to retain Ferentz until the middle of the next decade is that, just 18 months ago, many Hawkeyes fans wanted to see him fired.Iowa stumbled through a 7-6 season in 2014, capped by an embarrassing loss to Tennessee in a bowl game. Ferentz was never at risk of losing his job -- partly because of a buyout that wouldve cost the Hawkeyes well over $10 million -- but he promised to take a fresh look at how he ran his program anyway.Ferentz unexpectedly promoted quarterback C.J. Beathard ahead of successful incumbent Jake Rudock ahead of spring practice in 2015. Rudock left for Michigan, but Beathard blossomed into a star in leading the Hawkeyes to a school-record 12-0 start. The Hawkeyes embraced trick plays and alternate uniforms last season, things the once-conservative Ferentz shied away from in the past.Ferentz has also gone away from his propensity to redshirt as many freshmen as possible, playing six of them in last weeks 45-21 win over Miami (Ohio) to open the season.What stands out about coach Ferentz is his ability to bounce back, said cornerback Desmond King, whose relationship with Ferentz play a role in his decision to return for his senior season. Hes very resilient.Ferentz and his staff have ramped up recruiting efforts as well. The Hawkeyes, bolstered by a new football-only facility that rivals any in the country, currently have a top-20 class lined up for signing day in February.Any time you demonstrate stability ... thats a good thing, Ferentz said.Ferentz will surpass Hayden Fry, who he worked with for years as an assistant, as the longest-tenured coach in Iowa history if he stays through the end of his new deal. Fry coached for 20 seasons at Iowa.There were two great coaches here, (Ferentz) and (Hayden) Fry. Hes an amazing coach, an amazing guy to look up to.

Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale . -- Vincent Lecavalier got everything but the desired result in his return to Tampa Bay. Through the opening weeks of the season, the Edmonton Oilers emerged as something of a pleasant surprise as they strung together wins and moved atop the Pacific Division.But the season is one long grind, and their next opponent is no pushover.The Oilers will try to avoid their first three-game losing streak on Sunday night when they meet the New York Rangers, who come to Rogers Arena with the leagues most potent offense.New York (11-4-0) is going for its third win in four visits to Edmonton and first two-game season series sweep of the Oilers since 1998-99.Edmonton (9-5-1) began the season winning seven of eight, but the Oilers have coooled off by going 2-4-1. That included a 5-3 loss to the Rangers on Nov. 3 at Madison Square Garden, where New York erased a third-period deficit with three consecutive goals.After wrapping up a five-game Eastern swing with a loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday night, the Oilers were beaten 3-2 on Friday by the injury-riddled Dallas Stars.McLellan wasnt citing any residual effect from the road trip as a reason for coming out flat.Its always an excuse when you lose, McLellan told the Edmonton Journal. If we come out and play a great game, were not talking about playing five games in eight days on the road. Its the NHL. We have to do it eight times a year and so does everybody else. No excuses. Show up to the rink ready to play.Edmontons Connor McDavid drew an assist Friday, giving him five during a three-game streak. McDavid, who also had an assist against the Rangers this month, is tied with Alexander Wennberg of the Columbus Blue Jackets for the league lead with 13.However, the Oilers 19-year-old captain remains stuck on five goals as he has failed to score in seven straight games.Another player who has struggled for the Oilers is goaltender Cam Talbot, who backed up the Rangers Henrik Lundqvist for two seasons before being dealt to Edmonton in June 2015.Talbot is 1-3-1 with 3.39 goals-against average and .890 save percentage this month after going 7-2-0 with a 2.04 GAA, .936 save percentage and two shutouts in October.Edmonton still leads the Pacific Division with 19 points, one more than the San Jose Sharks and two points in front of the Anaheim Duckks.ddddddddddddAnd in spite of the Oilers recent play, center Mark Letestu told the teams official website Saturday that theres no reason why Edmonton cant keep up with the Rangers.If we can take anything from that game at Madison Square Garden, its were right there with them, said Letestu, who has two goals and four assists in 15 games. There should be confidence in this room that we can beat them and we should play with that kind of bravado and swagger out there.This is a team thats coming into our house and we expect to win so I think its going to be a great game. Two good teams, real fast, well see how it goes.The Rangers run through western Canada as part of a four-game road trip got off to a flying start with a 4-1 win over the Calgary Flames on Saturday night.Michael Grabner, Derek Stepan and rookies Jimmy Vesey and Pavel Buchnevich each scored for New York, which is averaging 4.13 goals per game.Its impressive to see how we create chances every game, said Lundqvist, who came within 8:48 of a shutout. ... It gives the team a lot of confidence knowing we can score if we really have to.Grabner has a team-high eight goals in 15 games. That matches his total in 34 games with the New York Islanders in 2014-15, and is one off the nine he had in 80 games with the Toronto Maple Leafs last season.Grabner, who notched a goal and an assist against the Oilers 11 days ago, has one career assist in five games in Edmonton.Lundqvist made 35 saves on Saturday and has been outstanding in his last eight starts, going 7-1-0 with a 1.88 GAA, .934 save percentage and a shutout.Hes making key saves, especially early in the year and early in games, Grabner said of Lundqvist. ... Hes one of the best goalies in the world.However, his last appearance in Edmonton was forgettable. Lundqvist surrendered five goals on 33 shots and was lifted 2:40 in the third period of a 7-5 loss on Dec. 11, 2015.Rangers center Rick Nash has three goals and four assists in a four-game points streak against Edmonton. Nash also has three goals and six assists in his last eight games in northern Alberta. ' ' '
