    I'm sure it's not the way he wanted to see it end
    but he definitely gave it the old college try.

    Before anyone asks, no, he’s not coming back to ISU to coach. It’ll never happen.

    He made $30m in Chicago and can sign a $10m P5 contract in his sleep, so he doesn't need your sympathy

    I don't think we would want him anyway. While he was coaching at ISU, he said it was his dream job, and he could see finishing out his career here. And then he left. He could never come back and be as beloved as he was before.

    Sad to hear this. Will be curious to see where he goes next.

    I know what I'd do with all that money. Nothing!

    One game-winning out-of-bounds play against Iowa or Kansas and a quick gaze into his dreamy blue eyes and we'd all be converted.

    Interesting balanced postmortem on Hoiberg's Bulls career. Had some good things to say about ISU at the beginning.

    He said he didnt enjoy the grind of recruiting. After the high living NBA lifestyle, I dont see him sitting in a top recruit's livingroom in the middle of nowhere.

    If he comes back to college bball, does that mean ISU wins the break up since he made it up?

    I could see him coming back to ISU as the AD whenever Pollard retires. Until then he’ll slide into a front office job in the nba.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't he say he liked coaching but didn't care for recruiting in college? That's not why he left - he left for the cash but college coaches still have to recruit.

    I have doubts about the NCAA cleaning up the sport unless the FBI forces it to but if the NCAA did in fact clean up recruiting with some serious penalties to those violating - did someone say Kansas - the rules then I wonder if college coaching might be more to Hoiberg's liking.

    He wouldn't make NBA type money but with the nest egg he has he could probably buy half the farms in Story County and lease the land for a chunk of money. I doubt he coaches again at ISU because ISU has a coach but maybe in the future it could become an option.

    Yeah... the Bulls decided to find someone else to sit in that chair and watch Bulls games.

    Apparently Richie Pitino has the best odds of getting fired. Fred to MN this time?

    He just had a big win over Nebraska last night. I think Pitino is safe this year.
