Where there's smoke, there's fire and it sounds like the fire is spreading. The Chicago Bulls were bounced from the NBA playoff's last night with a home loss to Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Bulls TV analyst and former player Will Perdue mentioned Hoiberg on a postgame show on CSN Chicago Thursday night. The problem is Chicago still has their Coach Tom Thibodeau, but reports this afternoon are coming in that Coach Thibodeau is gone.

I found it odd when earlier this week ISU Athletic Director Jamie Pollard conceded that it’s not a question of if Hoiberg will one day coach in the NBA, but when. Calls have been made back and forth, you can believe that. Now Cyclones fans wait to find out what will happen with "The Mayor" of Hilton.
