Special connection between Fred Hoiberg, Husker golf coach Mark Hankins

The first person to think of Fred Hoiberg as Nebraska’s men’s basketball coach wasn’t Bill Moos. It was men’s golf coach Mark Hankins, who was Hoiberg’s roomate at Iowa State. 

“He’s gonna be a great representative for our University,” Hankins said. “He’s got lots and lots of connections to Lincoln and Nebraska. It couldn’t be a better fit. We’re excited to see how he does and, obviously, we’ll support him all the way.”
