Fran McCaffery earned quite the milestone against an in-state rival. Iowa beat Iowa State 75-56 on Thursday night.

McCaffery earned his 500th career win after beating the Cyclones. McCaffery now posts a record of 500-341 overall throughout his career. Immediately after the final buzzer sounded McCaffery was surrounded by his sons Patrick and Connor.

The Iowa coach has had quite the career and delivered a great postgame speech to his team in the locker room.

β€œI would say this. I don’t ever consider myself having 500 wins. You guys win. I do the best I can to help you win. This is a special group right here. This profession is one that’s really built on relationships. My job is to put in a position to win.”

Not only was the win great for McCaffery, but it was great for the team’s morale as well. Iowa was coming off of a tough loss to Duke in the Jimmy V Classic.

Iowa faces Wisconsin next on Sunday at 6:30 p.m. ET on BTN.
