    USC was interested in the Mayor?

    I guess they figured hiring one ex ISU coach worked out so they put in a call to the Mayor?

    The real question is who ISN'T interested in the Mayor.

    My guess is all the major schools called Fred Hoiberg, even UCLA. He's three years in and hasn't had the chance to say "no" until this year.

    Well if you believe the stories around, he had much interest from NBA teams last season...and said "No" at that time.

    Maybe they were going to use the old "your football team's jerseys look just like ours!" and hope that enticed him.

    I do, and it would make sense that the NBA spotted his ability before the rest of them caught on.

    Fred, or any coaches for that matter, would be stupid not to listen to any offer just to entertain them. The coaching profession is a big fraternity and network and I'm sure Fred handled it with class because you never know when either he or an assistant will need a job OR when he will need to inquire about a transfer. Now, I also realize you were exaggerating a little bit.

    Not surprising. I wouldn't be shocked if there were colleges looking at him last year and I would guess that every major opening this year looked at Hoiberg. Same thing with NBA teams. The NBA teams will look at him every year.

    I think he is just a coaching star. It's pretty easy to see after 3 years.

    Those eyes were on TV too much to be ignored.
