As Porter detailed to The Gazette, Kirk went to the mat for his coaches after that meeting: “They felt like we were being accusatory. I don’t know why, it didn’t happen. They felt we were being disrespectful. It didn’t happen. We gave them one month to answer one question they already had the answer to, and they didn’t come prepared.”
Kirk said the decision to move on from that iteration of the committee came in November but it was not announced to the committee until after Iowa’s bowl game (roughly January 10th). He signed his contract on December 31st. So while his decision may have happened in November, the paper trail shows that the committee had served its purpose: He got his next bag.
