Hoiberg leaves the Minnesota T-Wolves for his alma mater

compiled from staff and wire reports

Iowa State University of the Big 12 Conference has brought back “The Mayor” for a second stint in Ames, and the Cyclones are optimistic that Fred Hoiberg still has the magic touch he show so often as sharp-shooting star at Hilton Coliseum, home of Iowa State.

Hoiberg, known as “The Mayor” during his playing career, replaces Greg McDermott, who left Iowa State after four seasons to take over as head coach at Creighton.

Hoiberg, who was the vice president of basketball operations for the Minnesota Timberwolves, is widely regarded as one of the most popular players  in Iowa State history.

A high school star from Ames High, Fred Hoiberg scored nearly 2,000 points for the hometown Cyclones from 1991-1995. He spent 10 seasons in the NBA with the Pacers, Bulls and Timberwolves before an issue with his heart forced him to retire in 2006.

An interesting point involving Hoiberg is that while he was involved in collegiate scouting with Minnesota, he’s never been a head coach. He will be inheriting a program with a boat-load of problems including four straight losing seasons and was hit hard by player defections right after the recently completed season.

Iowa State star Craig Brackins declared for the NBA draft, and another standout Marquis Gilstrap had his appeal for an extra season of eligibility denied by the NCAA. Three other players, including starting center Justin Hamilton, have announced plans to transfer.

Greg McDermott, also a popular native Iowan, led Northern Iowa to three straight NCAA tournaments but just couldn’t get Iowa State moving out of the bottom half of the Big 12 Conference. He was only 59-68 and felt more comfortable coaching in the Missouri Valley Conference where Creighton University plays and also his former team, Northern Iowa.
