Iowa State Hires McDermott
McDermott leaves UNI after earning three straight NCAA Tournament bids, including this season when the Panthers lost in the first round to number-7 seed Georgetown.
In his five seasons in Cedar Falls, he compiled three straight seasons with at least 20 wins, including a school-record 23 wins this season. McDermott also earned the school its first Top-25 ranking by the Associated Press. He was 90-63 at UNI and is 221-127 overall.
After two NIT final-four appearances in Morgan's first two seasons, Iowa State did not make the postseason after a first-round loss in the Big 12 Tournament to Oklahoma State this month.
