When Iowa State brought Keith Moore back as a student assistant in 2010, the university was hoping for another high-profile success in a program that helps former athletes return to finish their degrees.
Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg's successful second season landed him a new contract with a hefty raise.
Big 12 athletic directors discussed ways during their meeting Tuesday to stabilize their league before they can determine if and how much they might expand.
"Fred is so much more than a great basketball coach," Iowa State athletic director Jamie Pollard said. "He is an outstanding leader with quiet confidence, long-term vision and a popularity with the fan base that is hard to describe."
Pollard said formal agreements to ensure that stability were "still a work in progress" but insisted "all nine member institutions are fully engaged and committed" to putting those together.
