Fred Hoiberg is expected to be introduced as the new coach of the Chicago Bulls. The 42-year-old Hoiberg has spent the past 5 years at Iowa State and led the Cyclones to 4 straight appearances in the NCAA Tournament.
He addressed reporters on Monday before boarding a plane to Chicago and said several teams have had interest in him and he has talked to them, but there has been nothing close to happening. Hoiberg says this opportunity is something the “interested me greatly.”
Hoiberg worked in the front office for the Minnesota Timberwolves and always expressed a desire to eventually coach in the NBA. Hoiberg said it needed to be the right opportunity at the right time. Hoiberg called his time at Iowa State’five of the best years of my life”.
