SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Lucky to have Fran

People in Iowa should be ecstatic with the hiring of Fran McCaffery. I have been a close friend with Fran since our college days, and in simple words, “Fran just gets it.” He is a great person and a great coach. Furthermore, Fran and his wife, Margaret will represent the great university that the University of Iowa is — the way you want it represented. Margaret was a star player and coach at Notre Dame; thus, she really understands what it takes to excel.

In comparison with the last several coaches, Fran will be a breath of fresh air. He will be able to show the special and unique atmosphere present at the University of Iowa. By combining determination and persistence with warmth and empathy, Fran will recruit quality student-athletes. In a short time, Iowa will once again become competitive on a national level. He is a great judge of talent and character and has the rare ability to project who will be the better player in two to three years.

I am obviously biased, but Fran has been a close friend for 30 years. Iowa could not have made a better decision. His work has earned him the respect and admiration of the entire college-basketball community. Notice all of the positive statements from all who know him. Please save my letter, because I am certain that he will make the whole university community proud.
