    Hoiberg Q&A with Register

    Fred Hoiberg and Fran McCaffery: First seasons in their own words | The Des Moines Register | DesMoinesRegister.com

    Good Q&A with Fred. A couple things that stood out to me

    1. He didn't have any excuses for all the close losses. We choked away some of those games and Fred didn't deny it or spin it. He'll learn from it and be more prepared next year now that he has a season under his belt - bet on that

    2. Bobby Lutz was a key hire and it will hurt to see him go.

    3. I liked the part about Pullen giving him a hug and telling him he remembered him from his Chicago Bulls days. Fred's NBA connections can't hurt, no doubt

    Re: Hoiberg Q&A with Register

    Where do you see yourself in 20 years?

    I hope I’m still above ground. I hope I’m the coach at Iowa State.
    So this is your first-and-only college job?

    I hope I’m successful enough where this is my last college job.
    What about returning to the NBA as a head coach?

    No — at least not right now. This is home for me. I think a lot of people use jobs as stepping stones. This is the place I want to be. Honest. I hope I prove to Cyclone fans all over the country that I am the person for this job.
    Nice to hear. I really hope he gets the job done at ISU and retires here!
    Maybe the high-profile type of transfers we’re getting in here can help us do that (winning quickly), and then I’m hoping that will help us get more big-name kids out of high school.
    That should answer everybody's question on recruiting the transfers.


    When Prepared, Fear No One.

    He has a plan. Calm, cool, collected. Born leader.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    I think it's awesome that he's contacted Tim Floyd on a number of occasions.

    Re: Hoiberg Q&A with Register

    I think the strategy that Freddie is taking with transfers has a good chance of paying off big time. He can already point to DG's improvement as proof that he can provide an environment where players can improve to get to the next level.

    The real key is establishing a pattern of that. First, you have to have a system where players can flourish. Second, you have to be able to help them improve. Third, and most importantly, you have to have players with the raw talent to get to the NBA. I think some of these transfers obviously have that raw talent, and if Freddie can establish his program as one that helps players to the next level, top high school players will take note, and the sky is the limit in where this program will go.

    Re: Hoiberg Q&A with Register

    Fred is such a liar:
    I played with guys in the NBA that had a reputation of being horrible people. When you get to know those guys, it’s not at all the case. They may have made a mistake in life — we all have, but they got second chances to prove they can move on from that mistake. I am a believer in giving people second chances.
    It's obvious he's never made a mistake in life... tsk tsk tsk
