    Fred Hoiberg - “First, I want to thank Bill Moos, Chancellor Green and President Bounds for the opportunity to lead the Nebraska men’s basketball program,” Hoiberg said. “I can’t express how excited I am to be back on the sidelines and to be coaching at a university that means a lot to my family and me.

     

    “Lincoln is a special place for our family. I was born in Lincoln, my grandfather Jerry Bush was the head coach at Nebraska, my other grandfather was a long-time professor there, and my parents are proud graduates of the University of Nebraska. Nebraska has always felt like a second home.

     

    “I had the opportunity to coach at Pinnacle Bank Arena with the Bulls, and I have seen first-hand that the facilities are as nice as any in the country. When you couple that with a loyal and passionate fan base, you can see there is great potential for the future of Nebraska basketball.”

     

     

    Bill Moos - “We are excited to welcome Fred, his wife Carol, and their family to Nebraska. He will be an outstanding representative of the University, and a great leader for our men’s basketball program,” Moos said.

     

    “When you look at him, you see an individual who has had success as a player and a coach,” Moos said. “Fred’s background will sell itself on the recruiting trail, and help us bring in the type of student-athletes needed to compete at the highest level. His style of play not only will be appealing to prospective recruits, but will also provide our great fans an entertaining brand of basketball.”

     

    Ronnie Green -  “Bill Moos has made an exceptional choice to lead Husker basketball into the future. I look forward to welcoming Coach Hoiberg and his family to Nebraska and am excited to see where he takes the program.”

    Jut the obvious ones that he probably can't give a straight answer to:

     

    1. Any idea about how much roster attrition he expects...especially in regard to how likely it is that a certain PF from Dixon, IL comes back for his senior year

    2. What does he expect the makeup of the initial recruiting class to be?  Mostly transfers/JUCOs?  Does everyone currently committed to Nebraska still have a committable offer?

    Will he have regular events at Big Fred's Pizza in Omaha?

     

    I sure hope he doesn't frequent the worst pizza joint in Omaha.

    You were born in Lincoln.  Any chance you were conceived in the Coliseum?  ?

    How about: Greg McDermott was chased out of Ames for not successfully recruiting the son of ISU alum Ronnie Harris, Harrison Barnes.  Will you be recruiting Standhardingerson Barnes?
