Gary Parrish of CBS Sports reported on Wednesday that Fred Hoiberg is a “real candidate” for the Ohio State open head coaching position.
Hoiberg’s time in Chicago has been tumultuous at best and this report — which could realistically mean a few different things — will certainly start chatter about whether or not a change is in order. The Bulls have been all over the board strategically in how they run things, so it’s not clear what type of impact a change would have on the current roster in fantasyland.
Update: Marc Stein weighed in so this rumor definitely has some legs.
Hearing increasingly strong rumbles that Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg is on Ohio State's very short list as @GaryParrishCBS first reported.
