Fredrick Kristian Hoiberg (born October 15, 1972) is the head men's basketball coach at Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa,[1] where he grew up and had played college basketball. He was previously Vice President of Basketball Operations for the Minnesota Timberwolves of the NBA and played professionally for 10 years.

High school and college[edit]

Hoiberg, a multi-talented athlete, was the quarterback of the football team and the captain of the basketball team at Ames High School in Ames, Iowa. He led his basketball team to a State Championship in 1991. He was honored as the State of Iowa's "Mr. Basketball" for 1991. He chose to play for his hometown Iowa State Cyclones over many other major offers including a football scholarship from national powerhouse Nebraska. He played three seasons for coach Johnny Orr and one season for Tim Floyd. Hoiberg was a First-Team All-Big Eight selection in 1995. The most popular player in the history of Iowa State basketball, Hoiberg's name is found among the top seven positions for nearly every statistical category, and his number 32 has been retired by Iowa State. In college, he was known as an all-around player, capable of making clutch shots in important situations. While at Iowa State, Hoiberg joined Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity.

He got the nickname "The Mayor" when he received several write-in votes during the 1993 Ames, Iowa mayoral race.[2]

The National Federation of State High School Associations announced in 2012 that Hoiberg was elected to the National High School Hall of Fame.[3]

Professional playing career[edit]

At 6 ft 4 in (193 cm) and 210 lb (95 kg) he played shooting guard. He was selected 52nd overall by the Indiana Pacers in the 1995 NBA Draft. In 1999, after four years with the Pacers he signed as a free agent with the Chicago Bulls, at that time coached by Floyd, where he remained for four years. On July 28, 2003, Hoiberg signed as a free agent to play for the Timberwolves, where he received greater acclaim as a three-point specialist.

In 2005, Hoiberg became the first player in NBA history to lead the league in three-point shooting percentage and not be invited to the three-point shooting competition in that season's All-Star event.

Coaching career[edit]

Professional[edit]

Hoiberg underwent surgery in June 2005 to correct an enlarged aortic root (Aneurysm of sinus of Valsalva). The operation was successful, but after a brief comeback attempt as a player, Hoiberg joined the Minnesota Timberwolves coaching staff. On April 17, 2006, Hoiberg announced his retirement from basketball to take a job in the Timberwolves front office.

College[edit]

On April 27, 2010 Iowa State University announced that Hoiberg would take over as head basketball coach, taking over for Greg McDermott, who left ISU to take the head coaching position at Creighton University.[4] He is their 19th Men's Basketball coach. Hoiberg won his first game, although an unofficial exhibition, over the University of Dubuque on November 5, 2010, 100–50. Hoiberg won his first official game, against Northern Arizona University, 78–64 on November 12, 2010. In 2011-12, Hoiberg led the Cyclones to a 23-11 record and the program’s first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2005. [5] The season also included the team’s first ranking in the AP Top 25 poll since 2005. [6] Hoiberg was declared 2012 Big 12 Co-Coach of the Year after winning nine more games during the 2012 conference season than in 2011, the largest season-to-season improvement in Big 12 history.[7]

In April 2013, Hoiberg signed a 10-year contract extension with Iowa State worth $20 million. Hoiberg's contract has a $2 million buyout clause if he leaves for another college coaching position, but the buyout is only $500,000 if he leaves to become an NBA head coach or general manager.
