Video: Fred Hoiberg shows off breakdancing skills in new commercial


Fred Hoiberg: AKA "The Mayor"

The Iowa State men's basketball (10-2, ranked No. 17 in the country) coach was a sharpshooter in the NBA, blasting 3-pointers through the bottom of the net for the Pacers, Bulls and Timberwolves at a career clip of 39.6 percent. His best season from beyond the arc was his last with the Wolves, when he led the NBA at 48.3 percent, according to Basketball Reference.

As it turns out, Hoiberg is not the mayor of a town from Footloose; and he's not exactly Kevin Bacon on the dance floor.

The Des Moines Register explains that Hoiberg and a few other college basketball coaches get together for "Charity Dance Off," although it looks like a high school talent show; only these guys, specifically Hoiberg, have no talent.

"I thought I had a lot of swag," Hoiberg told the paper.

The first glimpse of Hoiberg dancing came at last year's NCAA Tournament when a camera caught him busting some moves with players after beating North Carolina. Video proof right here.
