ISU men’s basketball coach Fred Hoiberg boarded a plane to Chicago on Monday afternoon.

Hoiberg took a few moments to address the media before boarding.

“We’ll see how tonight goes. …nothing has been finalized yet,” Hoiberg said per Travis Hines of the Ames Tribune. 

The Mayor has been to four straight NCAA tournaments with the Cyclones, as well as back-to-back Big 12 Tournament Championships. However, Hoiberg addressed some of Pollard’s comments.

“Pollard is absolutely right,” he said per Tommy Birch of the Des Moines Register. “This is one of my life goals.”

It’s been reported that Hoiberg’s deal with the Bulls is for five years for $25 million.

Multiple reports say that an official announcement will come Tuesday.

ESPN’s Jeff Goodman reports that Hoiberg has informed several Iowa State staff members and players he is gone to the Bulls.
