    Niang tells KIMT 3 Hoiberg was offered Celtics job

    Mason City interview with Georges. Mentions that Hoiberg told him he was offered the job, but turned it down.

    Wow.

    Hoping Niang had CFH's permission to leak that little nugget...

    Whoa. Don't know if that makes me feel better that he turned it down, or worse knowing how serious NBA teams are about getting Fred.

    And after saying that, Georges said he is confident Fred will be here for a couple years. That's not very long!!

    Makes me feel on edge that Niang would say that.

    Re: Niang tells KIMT 3 Hoiberg was offered Celtics job

    That's crazy if it's true.

    Then again if NBA teams are already calling him after just 3 years as a head coach, he'll probably keep getting calls to coach NBA teams after just about every season. So I bet he'll be able to make the jump to the NBA whenever he feels like it's right for him.

    I bet stories like this will be a recurring theme in off-seasons from here on out.

    I hope the NBA keeps knocking. Means hes doing something right. Hoiberg isnt going to jump ship anytime soon.

    Better. I know the roster is a mess but that is a great job if given the proper timeline.

    It only confirms in my mind that Fred likes what he has at ISU. As long as Fred is alive, he will always have the opportunity to coach in the NBA. Chances to coach at your hometown and alma mater don't open up very often. If he leaves and is fired after 3 years, there is no guarantee he will be able to come back to ISU and he would really put the AD in a tough bind.

    Re: Niang tells KIMT 3 Hoiberg was offered Celtics job

    A couple things:
    -Yeah, if that was a comment that was supposed to stay at the basketball complex, I'd love to hear how Fred followed up with Georges. :)
    -Scary info, but encouraging to know CFH is staying. The Celtics is a great job. But, we can't crawl in Fred's head, a job like that may also have much greater scrutiny.
    -The good thing about Fred is he is a man of his word and has tons of character. If he did tell a player or recruit "i'll be here" I think that is a pretty solid promise barring a MAJOR change (new AD that doesn't like him, etc).
    -Get used to these scares...similar to Captain Kirk in IC a few years ago when the NFL came calling each year. I know at one time he basically came out and said, "what do I need to do/say to let you know I'm committed." (but, hopefully he'll go to the NFL soon due to his unemployment)

    Re: Niang tells KIMT 3 Hoiberg was offered Celtics job

    I think we all know that Fred will go to the NBA at some point. With his parents, in-laws, and kids all in town we are on bought time right now. I am just going by with what I think: he goes after most of the kids are graduated from high school. We might luck out with a double McDermott situation, if one of the boys is good enough to play bball, but I don't know them at all.
