Ames, IA (Sports Network) - Iowa State and men's basketball coach Fred Hoiberg
have come to terms on a 10-year, $20 million contract.
Hoiberg will remain the head coach at his alma mater through the 2022-23
"When I returned to the University three seasons ago, it was a dream come
true," Hoiberg said. "The progress that we have made so far has been very
rewarding, but there is more work ahead. I sincerely appreciate the support
that president (Steven) Leath and (athletics director) Jamie (Pollard) have
given me. Ames is my home and Hilton Coliseum has given me countless memories
as both a player and coach. I look forward to continue leading a program that
Cyclone fans can be proud of."

loss to Ohio State in the third round of the NCAA Tournament on Sunday.

in the Big 12.
Hoiberg played for Iowa State from 1991-95 and then spent 10 years in the
NBA, with stops in Indiana, Chicago and Minnesota. Hoiberg received the
nickname "The Mayor" when he received a write-in vote for the Ames, Iowa
mayoral race. He was honored as Mr. Basketball in Iowa for 1991 and the
following season he enrolled at Iowa State.
