According to a press release from the university, Iowa football head coach Kirk Ferentz has won the 2015 Dodd Trophy.

The Dodd Trophy goes annually to the college football coach whose program represents what the award calls its three pillars: scholarship, leadership and integrity. On-field success is also taken into account as well, so with all that in mind it’s easy to see why Ferentz was the recipient of the award.

Even in down years, Iowa football has been known for a commitment to education and doing things the right way. Throw in the fact that Ferentz led the Hawkeyes to an undefeated regular season and a berth in the Rose Bowl against Stanford on Jan. 1, and he seems like a perfect fit for this award in 2015.

Naturally, Ferentz handled the award with class, giving credit to his staff and team.

“It is an honor to be recognized with the Dodd Trophy, knowing what this award represents in college football on a national level,” Ferentz said via the press release. “I appreciate the recognition for the hard work of our entire coaching staff and every member of our football program and appreciate the acknowledgment of our accomplishments. I am honored to share this recognition with our staff, our players and our great fans and I am grateful to the University of Iowa for providing the necessary support for our success.”
