Former Iowa State Coach Fired By Bulls
Former Iowa State player and coach Fred Hoiberg has been fired by the Chicago Bulls. The team released the news to the media on Monday morning. Hoiberg was named head coach of the Bulls on June 2, 2015.
Chicago has really struggled this year going 5-19 to start the season. Associate head coach Jim Boylen will take over the head coaching duties.
Hoiberg grew up in Ames and played college basketball at Iowa State. He played professional basketball for ten years before starting his coaching career. Hoiberg coached the Cyclones from 2010-2105. He became the fastest coach in Iowa State history to notch 100 wins on December 21, 2014.
I'd love to see Hoiberg come back home. But would Iowa State welcome him back if there was an opening? That part I'm not sure about.
He's a talented coach and he will find another coaching job. Hoiberg's way too good not to. Whatever happens, we wish Coach Hoiberg the best of luck.
I don't think we've seen the last of this guy.
