    Re: Niang tells KIMT 3 Hoiberg was offered Celtics job

    I'm from North Iowa originally, and still have friends there, so every once in a while they tweet me a note about a story or article I might be interested in. I got a tweet about this video last night.

    I took it as a joke. CFH was just kidding with Niang that he had turned down the Celtics job because he already had his fill of Boston types with Niang around. Now, maybe there was a serious offer, but I just took it as a joke when I first heard it. Just seems to me that if CFH had indeed been offered the job, we would have heard about that......why would they keep it a secret? Anyway....that is how I took it. I could be wrong.

    Re: Niang tells KIMT 3 Hoiberg was offered Celtics job

    Look at his face. That is the smirk of somebody telling a funny story about Hoiberg giving him the business. That is not a scoop from Niang about how close he came to losing a coach who is like a father to him.

    Gentlemen it's been fun watching good basketball with you. We'll be in the cellar in 2 years after Fred jumps to the NBA this summer.

    Well, I will say that it reassures me about the judgment of the Celtics--because Fred's clearly a better qualified candidate for a pro job than the guy they did hire.

    What does Georges really know about what Georges said?

    So the extent of Celtics interest in Fred remains unclear - it's good to have this (incorrect) information out there - makes Fred look good. Win either way.

    I might as well throw in what I heard, and that's that Fred was not at the top, but very near the top of the celtics list of candidates.

    Re: Niang tells KIMT 3 Hoiberg was offered Celtics job

    I guess I dont know why people have there panties in a bunch over this.. I texted a friend who was a big Nebraska basketball booster back when ISU was looking at hiring Doc. I asked him about Doc and he said he didnt know anything about it.. but he said that he knew first Hand that the Phoneix Suns first choice was Fred. This is before they hired Jeff. So I guess I just assume that every NBA job that comes open Fred gets called about.. IDK...

    Re: Niang tells KIMT 3 Hoiberg was offered Celtics job

    No panties in a bunch here (until he actually leaves).

    Every year, Fred will be contacted about NBA jobs - as long as he is successful and appears to be innovative. It's a double-edged sword in that it looks really good to recruits to have NBA aspirations, but the moment he takes the offer - we'll all be sick to our stomachs. I just hope he holds off until his kids graduate.

    Re: Niang tells KIMT 3 Hoiberg was offered Celtics job

    Just got a chance to listen to the whole interview.....I don't know that I've seen too many TV stations with over 8 minutes with a player. That was some great stuff. Might be nice if some people email the guy to thank him for that.

    And Georges continues to impress. He's a very smart and well spoken kid. I'm so excited he is a Cyclone. Georgesfan, you should be really proud :)

    Yeah, no need getting too worried about it, but even though you know it is coming, it still makes a person worried when you hear about it. It would be one thing if Iowa State basketball had been the definition of stable since 1994, but I don't want to have to hire a 7th coach in 20 years :)

    Dont know that for sure but with social media and everything the way it is today you shouldnt tell anyone anything that you dont want to be made public. Especially a 19-20yr old


    “It’s beyond pride. It’s a restored trust. There’s a confidence again, a passion that teeters on swagger. More than anything, (Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads) has restored the Iowa State “it” factor, the steadfast belief that it is great to be a Cyclone...the man’s enthusiasm is genuine to the core...”

    Said in the interview it was in reply to a text....so, to me that seems much more of a private communication as opposed to a statement to a team.

    I'm with ya though, now days very difficult to not have stuff get out. I wonder what the coaches specifically say to them about social media and info that "doesn't leave the room" vs public knowledge? Some of it is obviously a give in (like, if say, QB x is starting this week instead of another, the team may know that, but won't share) but some may not be.
