    Would Hoiberg get Jim Hallihan as his head assistant coach?

    This would be spectacular...combine Hallihan's experience and their pre-existing relationship.

    I'm merely speculating but seems like it would be a natural decision for a mentorship type deal...

    What nobody is interested in assistants outside of Otz and Grayer?

    Hadn't seen the thread yet. It's a fun idea, and worth talking about.

    He'd definitely be short-term, based on age, but that's not all bad.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I'm not sure you'd have to hire Jim to help Freddie. He'd probably help him regardless.

    I mean no disrespect, but Hallihan has been out of the game too long. I think Fred would be best served looking for a young fiery assistant with an NBA pedigree and/or a lot of current coaching experience.

    Re: Would Hoiberg get Jim Hallihan as his head assistant coach?

    Right I just see it as a natural sort of situation...depending on what brand of basketball Freddy wants to bring back, we all have to remember his entire class had to adjust to a different style of ball under Floyd in their senior year (his amazing class that is)...not having studied what sort of game the Wolves played anyone have any insight on any possible pro assistants that might come work with him on the college game?

    Re: Would Hoiberg get Jim Hallihan as his head assistant coach?

    It is exciting to think about what former players or coaches Fred can bring on. He obviously has a plan and I imagine there is a whole lot of short term improvement in it. Namely Defense and fundamentals. Considering who he has played for he has a ton of people to get advice from.

    This would be the greatest thing in cyclone basketball since the hire of Freddie.


    I hope so.

    Most of you will never know; but Tom Izzo looks in the mirror he sees Jim Hallihan with a sign that says what if Michigan State was like Iowa State and didn't honor a commitment.

    Hallihan should have been our coach after Johnny. Things finally have away of working out. Freddie will be great.

    Re: Would Hoiberg get Jim Hallihan as his head assistant coach?

    I used to live next to Hallihan on Illinois Ave in Ames. His house is up for sale atm, and I would guess he has no interest in this based on his age.

    Re: Would Hoiberg get Jim Hallihan as his head assistant coach?

    Hallihan has his hands pretty full running the Iowa Summer/Winter Games and I think he also does some other "get fit" programs (like "Lighten Up Iowa" or something). He'd have to drop all of that to be an official member of the basketball program. I'm sure he'd have time for Hoiberg if he wanted to talk informally though.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    Lets Be Realistic

    Hallihan has been away from college hoops for what? 15 years.

    Freddie needs assistant coaches who are in touch with todays basketball culture. We need a guy on the staff, other than TJ, who will be able to step in from day 1 as a recruiter. Not so much from a standpoint of bringing in guys this spring, but has connections and has watched this year's junior class. We will lose Garrett, Vanderbeken, Dendy and Boozer after next season. Hoiberg needs to build a staff that can:
    1. Keep the current roster in place and most of the incoming recruits committed to ISU. (Hopefully TJ can do this)
    2. Even if #1 happens- we are probably looking at a recruiting class next fall of 6-7 kids at a minimum.
    As another poster mentioned- I'm sure Jim will help Fred out all he can without having to be an assistant coach.
