Former Iowa star receiver Derell Johnson-Koulianos took to twitter the other night to rant against his former coach, Iowa's Kirk Ferentz.
As most of you may remember, DJK was arrested and charged with several drug-related crimes in December of his senior season, leading to a suspension for his team’s bowl game.
While the result of the arrest eventually became a simple marijuana possession guilty plea, DJK was never able to find work in the NFL, despite having the physical talents necessary.
Many have theorized that his former coach, Kirk Ferentz, may have “blackballed” himfrom the NFL due to a strained relationship between the two. Whether or not it’s true, the former wide receiver is soon going to release a tell-all book that, we’re guessing, is going to be a scathing account of what he claims goes on behinds closed doors at Iowa. Ahead of its release, DJK went OFF today on Twitter.
What do you guys think? Is DJK just another spurned player out for revenge and a big pay day? Or could there be some smoke to this fire? Would be HUGE news if true. The book is reportedly due out next summer.
DJK posts several tweets regarding the matter, all of them can be found in the linked article. I chose a few to post here:

At least 10 NFL teams said to me "We understand you made a mistake but my concern is no one at Iowa had anything good to say about you."— DJK (@coachkoul) December 17, 2013
Recruits need to consider this about KF before going to Iowa. It's all good when you're converting 3rd downs and touchdowns but don't F up.— DJK (@coachkoul) December 17, 2013
