Fred Hoiberg Named Iowa State Head Coach

The former Vice President of Basketball Operations for the Timberwolves is moving back to Ames, IA to coach his alma mater: “Fred Hoiberg talked about family, academics and the “thrill of coming home” while being introduced as the next Iowa State men’s basketball coach today during a press conference that was open to the public. The job became open when Greg McDermott resigned on Sunday to accept the same position at Creighton. ‘Wow. It’s great to be home,’ Hoiberg said. ‘I haven’t slept or eaten in two days because of the excitement I’ve felt.’”
