I think Bruce is only interested in working with Munch, and will again when Much gets another HC gig.

This may shed some light on what happended with Brian Ferentz...

But with the 2013 football season behind them, it is definitely time for head coach Kirk Ferentz and his diligent staff to take on the next task at hand — finishing up the long and arduous task of recruiting.

Usually, the team’s top recruiter is given the task of securing a quality quarterback. For Iowa, this job has usually gone to Kirk Ferentz’s son Brian Ferentz , who is the Hawkeyes’ offensive line coach. Kirk Ferentz spent is playing days as a Hawkeyes under the tutelage of his father before beginning his coaching career under legendary NFL coach Bill Belichick. Since returning to Iowa, the younger Ferentz has proved to be one of his father’s most trusted coaches.
...
...It has been assumed by some that Kirk Ferentz was always keeping the seat warm in Iowa City for his son. The younger Ferentz wouldn’t have assumed the throne by bloodline, alone and was given the opportunity to learn and coach under his father...
Could have been family. Could be he got some guarantees. Could be Texans made him wait too long or he felt he was "second fiddle"?
