Hoiberg press conference

Fred Hoiberg speaks at his last Iowa State press conference in Hilton Coliseum on Friday, June 5, 2015.

Former Iowa State head coach and player Fred Hoiberg has found a new place to call home.

Nebraska fired coach Tim Miles on Tuesday by Saturday had named Hoiberg as his replacement.

An Ames native, Hoiberg played at Iowa State from 1991-95 under coaches Johnny Orr and Tim Floyd. He played 10 years in the NBA for three different teams before retiring after the 2004-05 season.

Hoiberg worked in the Minnesota Timberwolves' front office before returning to Ames in 2010-11 to coach Iowa State. In five years at the helm for the Cyclones, Hoiberg went 115-56, won two Big 12 Tournament titles and led Iowa State to its first Sweet 16 appearance since 1999-2000.

After the 2014-15 season, Hoiberg took the head coaching job with the Chicago Bulls. He was fired earlier this season after going 115-155 in three-plus years.
