Derrell Johnson-Koulianos (USA Today Sports)

When he was playing receiver at Iowa from 2007-2010, Derrell Johnson-Koulianos did not have the best relationship with coach Kirk Ferentz. The two often butted heads and Johnson-Koulianos was eventually kicked off the team following a drug arrest in 2010.

With 173 catches (most in Iowa history) and 17 touchdowns over his four seasons, Johnson-Koulianos had a very productive career, but the run-ins with Ferentz and the law cut his playing days short. Now, Johnson-Koulianos wants to tell his side of the story. On Tuesday he took to Twitter to announce that he is writing a book about Iowa football while also offering some juicy tidbits about his time with Kirk Ferentz.

It remains to be seen when this book will be released, but Johnson-Koulianos told the Iowa City Gazette that he has a contract offer for the book, but he wouldn't get into specifics. He also told The Gazette that he's "weighing exposing teammates" in the book.

It's definitely a situation to keep an eye on, but certainly nothing that could jeopardize Ferentz's job.
