    Nick Nurse as an ISU assistant coach

    I don't really follow ISU basketball or college basketball for that matter much anymore, but I know that Nick Nurse was brought on by Mac and then left when Hoiberg took over. With Nurse now up for a D League championship tonight, do people think he could have helped us succeed or are his coaching talents specific to just the D League?

    Didn't matter who was on the bench. McD was in a self fulfilling cycle. Nurse wouldn't have been the key to turn it around unless he brought in an entirely new system that McD used.


    "Blamo"! The new CF approved swear word.

    He definitely would have helped us. I wish Freddy would have kept him on as an assistant. Must not be any type of relationship there. Coaching in the D League has many challenges, and Nurse does an outstanding job of going with the flow and getting his teams to win - whoever is on the floor.

    He might have been a good guy to bounce ideas off of considering the Pro-style offense we run.

    I'm surprised Nick isn't an assistant in the NBA yet.

    Re: Nick Nurse as an ISU assistant coach

    The move by Nurse just baffled me. It was most definitely a step down in his career, and knowing the direction of McDermotts program, I was shocked at the move.

    That being said, I'm sure Hoiberg would of taken him, but once McDermott left, my guess is Nurse was no longer interested...

    You are very off imo.

    ISU paid Nurse a lot of money to go away. If Fred wanted him, wouldn't he have requested Nurse work for that money?

    Worked out pretty well with the guaranteed money he walked away with.

    If Hoiberg wanted him, id've thought either he would've stayed, or he would've quit and we wouldntve had to pay him the large amount we did.

    Re: Nick Nurse as an ISU assistant coach

    Nick Nurse would probably be without a job right now if he had stayed with McDermott, makes me sick he collected a huge payday for no work. Has he made any large donations to the athletic dept?

    Ahh yes forgot about the buyout. That being said, I have no idea why Hoiberg wouldn't of taken him. To me it seemed kind of like a steal for ISU.

    He was able to go back to his old job. No major harm done. Yes, definitely within his rights, but kind of a **** move. Settle for a smaller amount for the trouble and walk away.

    Re: Nick Nurse as an ISU assistant coach

    Hoiberg didn't keep him because as a head coach with no coaching experience he couldn't afford to have one of his assistants have zero college coaching experience and next to no recruiting ties.


    read this post quickly - it might not last long

    This. And for those whining about the Nurse buyout, keep in mind it was peanuts compared to the probable buyout of GMac's contract if Altman doesn't leave for Oregon.

    Nurse will likely be in coaching in the NBA next season which is why the Energy recently promoted his assistant.
