Lot of folks will say Hoiberg only won at ISU due to transfers. But believing in, molding and unleashing Georges Niang was greatest feat.

Myron Medcalf @MedcalfByESPN

He used to meet with Royce White every day in his office. Just talking to him, building that trust. Not easy. Knows how to connect w/guys.

Re: Hoiberg's people skills...I was with him after that tough OT loss to KU few years ago. Greeted construction guys in his office by name.

Myron Medcalf @MedcalfByESPN

Hoiberg won't have any trouble with NBA personalities. Coached Royce White, Deandre Kane, Chris Allen, Bryce Dejean-Jones and made it work.

Bulls expected to hire Hoiberg Tuesday

Chicago is making a "major announcement" at 3 p.m. ET, the expectation being that the team will reveal the hiring of Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg. Hoiberg informed his ISU staff and players of his decision Monday before boarding a plane for Chicago, according to ESPN's Jeff Goodman.

Jeff Goodman @GoodmanESPN

Spoke to and texted with some NBA guys today on who likely to be next in the college-to-NBA-route. Answer: Bill Self or Kevin Ollie.

Jeff Goodman @GoodmanESPN

Bulls make the Hoiberg hiring official -- and college hoops has now lost Brad Stevens, Billy Donovan and Hoiberg to NBA in last two years.

Getting ready to say goodbye to Hoiberg

Fred Hoiberg has informed several Iowa State players and staff members that he is leaving, a source told ESPN.com's Jeff Goodman. Hoiberg, 42, spent four of his 10 seasons in the NBA playing for the Bulls. Deal 'all but complete'

Hoiberg took some high-risk transfers because he wanted to win immediately. Next coach doesn't have to follow that model. Don't expect it.

David Huff will start tomorrow unless needed tonight. Mattingly ruled out Zach Lee. Greinke has night game. No double-Zack(h) attack!
