    Hoiberg named as Celtics HC candidate

    Who might be the Celtics’ next head coach? Here’s 13 potential choices ... - Sports - The Boston Globe "Analysis: “The Mayor” is a strong candidate from the college ranks who has NBA experience in several areas. Unclear how his coaching style would translate, but a safe, potentially stable pick."

    He's gone.

    No way he would take that job. Nobody in their right mind would. The person who takes it will be gone in a year or two bc they will be bad.

    Re: Hoiberg named as Celtics HC candidate

    Even though the possibility of an all ISU former players now NBA head coach Finals would be cool. I want Fred to stay right here in Ames. He has unfinished business to take care of...




    I WAS THERE!!!!!!

    Very similar situation that Floyd faced and we know how that ended.

    Agree - that team has been gutted. Is Ainge someone a coach wants to work for?

    Re: Hoiberg named as Celtics HC candidate

    I was JUST thinking of CFH yesterday and Pollard's bold move. How crazy is it that a few years ago, he was CFH was a suit in an NBA office with no experience coaching...now, his name comes up in both college and pro openings?

    I don't think it will be that dire, because the C's are being very honest about being in rebuilding mode. You can't sell off all your assets like you're going out of business and then blame the new coach if you're not winning in 2 years. Now if they win the Wiggins sweepstakes and can't turn into a competitive playoff team in 4-5 years, that's a different story. That being said, I can't see Fred taking on another rebuilding job before he's had the chance to enjoy the fruits of his rebuilding job at ISU.

    Or...he could take the job because it is one of professional sports most storied franchises and they have a ton of draft picks in the next 2 years where he could bring in guys to fit his style. I, like all of you, don't want him to leave but I've learned in my time as a Cyclone fan to not be so dismissive of these types of rumors. His contract clearly shows that he has contemplated an eventual move to the NBA. A rebuilding team with the prestige of the Celtics may be alluring...

    rick pitino tried rebuilding the Celtics once as well... That didn't turn out too well.

    Just my opinion, but I don't see Fred going anywhere until his kids are out of school. He's already moved them once but that was to move back home. I can't picture him moving them from the Gilbert school district to some school in suburban Boston.

    Re: Hoiberg named as Celtics HC candidate

    College season is short compared to NBA - when you've got young kids, I imagine that's a pretty big lifestyle change. Of course his offseason wouldn't be filled with recruiting... Who knows. While the Celtics are a huge brand, the media and fans there wouldn't have the goodwill toward Fred that he gets here in Iowa. Who knows though... I believe he and Aings are friends to some extent. I know they've been spotted together at AAU tournaments.

    Re: Hoiberg named as Celtics HC candidate

    I suppose it's always a possibility, but I don't know that Boston is an ideal setup right now. Ange has always shown an itchy trigger finger and doesn't appear to have much loyalty towards players - at various points over the last couple years he tried to deal KG, Ray Allen, PP, and Rondo, the core guys of the franchise. If you're a Celts fan that has to be the scariest part of the ensuing rebuild job - does Danny Ainge have the patience to stay the course or is this going to be a haphazard effort that goes in starts and fits?
