Michigan State guard, son of B1G head coach hits NCAA transfer portal
Michigan State guard Jack Hoiberg, son of Nebraska head coach Fred Hoiberg, has entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal. Kyle Austin of MLive.com reported the news on Wednesday.
Hoiberg was a four-year member of the Spartans basketball team. He joined the squad as a walk-on in 2017 and was awarded a scholarship before the start of the 2020 season.

In his time in East Lansing, Hoiberg has played in 41 career games and has scored 36 career points, dished out 20 assists, grabbed 8 rebounds and totaled 3 steals. He played in 14 games during this season, helping get the Spartans to the NCAA Tournament for a 23rd consecutive year.
During the 2019-20 season, Hoiberg started one game: Michigan State’s home game against Nebraska. It was a sentimental and special moment for both Jack and his father, who was on the other sideline.
Because he redshirted during the 2017-18 season and the NCAA granted a blanket waiver for all winter student-athletes this year, Hoiberg will still have two years of eligibility remaining.
