Medcalf: NBA For Mayor?
Fred Hoiberg's new deal at Iowa State makes it tough for another school to poach him, though maybe not an NBA team, Myron Medcalf writes. Blog
Hoiberg agreed to a new 10-year, $20 million deal in March after leading Iowa State to back-to-back NCAA tournament appearances.
Hoiberg would essentially owe a year's salary to Iowa State if he leaves for another school. Hoiberg's buyout will be just $500,000 if he accepts a job as a head coach or general manager in the NBA.
Hoiberg also receives $250,000 for reaching the Final Four and $100,000 for winning or tying for the Big 12 regular season title.
Hoiberg's new deal, which mirrors one recently signed by football coach Paul Rhoads, runs through 2023.
