    Fred and Bill Self at top of the list for NBA jobs

    Among current college coaches according to Jeff Goodman's (ESPN College BB Insider) NBA sources. He was on 810 here in KC this morning. Says he'll get an opportunity within the next five years. Lots of love for Fred.

    I hope he doesn't get that opportunity. For this programs sake, we need at least 5-6 more years of dreamy to re-establish our program in a good enough standing for him to leave IMO.

    Surprised Goodman even said that long. We know Fred was at least in the minds of some GMs in the past. If we have the season we could have I wouldn't be a bit surprised to see him have opportunities sooner rather than later. In saying that I'm not sure he really wants to leave Iowa State, even if it means an NBA job.

    I think he'll stay until he wins the NC.

    He did say within five years. He also made the point that the job would have to be a good one. Not some crap opening with a perennial loser. He compared him to Brad Stevens and how well their personality works with NBA egos. He's talking to NBA sources in the league which makes me nervous. He's well-connected.

    At least a FF.
    We get a abnormally good couple breaks on the recruiting trail and it could happen.

    Only way Fred leaves is after years and years of success, or a NC. He knows what it means to this state, hes one of us. Maybe I'm naive, but I trust him to make the best possible decision for the future of ISU.

    Re: Fred and Bill Self at top of the list for NBA jobs

    I don't think Fred will leave until he has won a couple Big 12 titles and possibly a trip or two to the Final 4 and beyond. He will leave ISU in very good shape, in which we could hire a very good coach to replace him.


    When Prepared, Fear No One.

    He won't leave until he's left a huge permanent mark on the program, much, MUCH bigger than the one he's already leaving right now.

    I fully expect at least 4 more contract renegotiations before Fred leaves.

    I'm willing to bet he's all ready had the opportunity to leave for an NBA job.

    Re: Fred and Bill Self at top of the list for NBA jobs

    I expect him to stay 10+ years. He is Ames and Iowa State its that simple. There are really only two jobs that I can see him leaving for and one is highly unlikely. That is the Lakers because they are the Lakers but I really don't think he would because it isn't him. The other is the Timberwolves. I just don't see him being able to leave this for anywhere else. They may offer him more money and stuff but does he really need it? When he can be successful here basically has a contract for life and makes more than enough to buy anything you would want in Iowa I just don't see it.

    There's already talk about Fred replacing Thibedeau since him and Gar Forman go way back.

    I don't see us losing a 2nd coach to the Bulls.
