    Parrish: College coach best equipped to jump to NBA

    Candid Coaches: Which college coach is best equipped to jump to NBA? - CBSSports.com

    • Fred Hoiberg (19 percent)
    • Mike Krzyzewski (16 percent)
    • Billy Donovan (14 percent)
    • Bill Self (14 percent)
    • John Calipari (12 percent)
    • Tom Izzo (12 percent)
    • Thad Matta (5 percent)


    On Fred Hoiberg: "He's a smart guy who understands the NBA from the perspective of a player as well as the perspective of an executive. I think it's practically guaranteed that he'll be an NBA coach someday, and probably sooner rather than later."

    THE TAKEAWAY (BY GARY PARRISH)
    Nobody has enhanced his reputation as a current and future coaching star over the past two years than Fred Hoiberg because, let's not forget, it seemed like a questionable move when his alma mater hired him in April 2010 despite the fact that Hoiberg had no previous coaching experience at any level. Turns out, experience wasn't necessary. Because, as they say, when you got it, you got it. And Hoiberg clearly has it -- both the talent and personality to flourish as a coach just like he once flourished as a player.
    He also has NBA front-office experience.
    That means Hoiberg has now been a successful college and professional player, a respected NBA executive and an accomplished Big 12 coach. In other words, his resume is diverse and impressive, and it's only a matter of time before an NBA franchise lures him from ISU. I've believed that for more than a year now, and I've stated it publicly many times. The results of our poll suggest, at the very least, that college coaches agree.

    Yay?

    On one hand, I think this could be a great recruiting tool. On the other hand, I think this may happen sooner than people would like.

    I'm glad Iowa State has literally the best coach. Each year we are getting better recruits too. It won't be long until we have one of the best teams in the nation regularly.

    I'd be ecstatic if Fred coached in the college ranks half as long as some of those guys. I'm surprised that any coach other than Krzyzewski, Calipari, or Hoiberg has over 10% of the vote.

    Re: Parrish: College coach best equipped to jump to NBA

    Fred's peers respect his coaching and both the NCAA and NBA are taking notice. It should also be noted that all the other top coaches referenced have spurned the NBA in the past, except Calipari, despite getting connected to multiple teams and one would guess very tempting offers. Why couldn't Hoiberg decide to do the same?

    He could and I expect him to for the next couple years or so but many think Fred is a NBA coach coaching in college while the other coaches that went to the NBA from college were college coaches coaching in the NBA.

    Fred just seems like a natural NBA coach who will get there eventually.

    Of course someone outside of the program says he is gone sooner than later. Never fails with national media to not know anything. To me, this is more great press as every other coach listed is far more accomplished.
