Report: Hoiberg turns down Gophers, signs extension at Iowa State


Fred Hoiberg will not be the next head coach of the Gophers men's basketball team.

The University of Minnesota reportedly offered Hoiberg the head coaching job, but on Thursday night Iowa State athletics director Jamie Pollard tweeted that Hoiberg wasn't going anywhere.

Myron Medcalf, formerly of the Star Tribune, tweeted some telling reasons as to why Hoiberg may have decided to stay at Iowa State.

Hoiberg is an Ames, Iowa native, but he spent two years playing for the Timberwolves and later worked in the organization's front office.
