I ran across a pretty interesting article from 2015 about Fred Hoiberg. With all of the Hoiberg speculation I thought I would share a portion of the article. A couple interesting facts were, Osborne offered Hoiberg a scholarship at tight end. I had also forgotten that Hoiberg replaced McDermott when he left for Creighton. Hoiberg had no head coaching experience at the time, but he was already a legend in Ames. He turned down a Nebraska football scholarship at the height of the Tom Osborne era to play basketball for his hometown school. He left as the program's third-leading scorer after taking the Cyclones to the NCAA Tournament three times. He had his jersey retired two years after graduation. More at the link.
