ISU Otzelberger Leaving for Washington
DES MOINES, IA - Iowa State assistant basketball coach T.J. Otzelberger is leaving the Cyclones for a similar position with the Washington Huskies.
Huskies coach Lorenzo Romar announced Otzelberger's hiring on Tuesday, calling him a "tenacious recruiter."
The 36-year-old Otzelberger has been with Iowa State since 2006. He was promoted to associate head coach in 2010 under Fred Hoiberg.
Though Otzelberger's strength lied with recruiting, he was also responsible for Iowa State's game plans over the past two seasons. He says the move felt like a logical step in what he hopes is his progression to a head coaching job someday.
