tend to agree with your thoughts above but I could also see how coaches would look at the isu job at that point and think, “why would I want to follow hoiberg as a coach there? The man could do no wrong in Ames-except leave.” As well, yes there was a ton of pro talent on the team but taking over in June puts a coach behind the right ball when trying to put together future recruiting classesI suspect we'll both agree that this was the deal.
There's just no way this was a job where really good coaches looked and said, "well, sure, that's a roster of potential NBA guys, they win a lot, but it's June, so I'll stay put."
We'll go cheap this time, too. I like to look at better options, but we won't be doing that. It'll be a cheap hire, and probably TJ, because searching is hard and they know each other.
