CBSSports.com: Otzelberger has “full support”

 CBSSports.com’s Gary Parrish posted in interesting report early today that now includes a note-worthy new wrinkle in the ongoing Fred Hoiberg-to-the-NBA speculation.

 The fresh perspective was added by his CBS Sports Network colleague Jon Rothstein, as bolded in the quotes below:

 "So who would replace Hoiberg at Iowa State?

Multiple sources told CBS Sports Network’s Jon Rothstein on Friday that Iowa State assistant T.J. Otzelberger has the "full support" of Pollard and should be considered the leading candidate. However, sources added that there are other members of Iowa State’s administration that need to sign off on Otzelberger before things could become official."

 We’ve known for some time Otzelberger would be among the leading candidates to replace Hoiberg if he left for Chicago or another NBA job, but being tabbed as "the leading candidate" is something new.

 But note the extra "however" in there — and it seems we’re awash in a sea of "howevers," right?

 And of note: our own Chris Williams posted this well-sourced article earlier, too.
