Fred Hoiberg, University Of Nebraska Nearing Deal

Fred Hoiberg is the heavy favorite to become the next men’s basketball coach at the University of Nebraska, reports Evan Daniels of 247 Sports. “This shouldn’t take long,” a source told Daniels.

Hoiberg feels like the gig “just fits him,” a source close to the situation tells Stadium’s Jeff Goodman (Twitter link). The school parted ways with Tim Miles, who has been their coach for seven seasons, earlier today.

Hoiberg, who previously led Iowa State to four straight tournament appearances, most recently served as the Bulls‘ head coach for four seasons. He didn’t find much success at the professional level, owning a record of 115-155 with Chicago.

  1. Nebraska Tim

    Here’s hoping that he has some success recruiting quality players and that he’s able to put together a system that works.

  2. Stoop Down Low

    Fred Hoiberg, mayor of Lincoln. He can recruit and coach and the school has some tradition in basketball. Good call by the Cornhuskers.
