47-year-old Carol  Hoiberg was born Carol Sarah McGee to Judy and Denis McGee. Her mom was an elementary teacher in Ames and her father a professor at Iowa State University.

Carol attended at Ames High School where she met Fred, they attended college together. Carol was ecstatic when Coach Hoiberg aka The Mayor (a nickname  he  received after getting a write-in vote for the Ames mayoral race) was selected 52nd overall by the Indiana Pacers in the 1995 NBA Draft; he stayed with Indiana until 1999; later signed with the Chicago Bulls and finally in 2003 with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Sadly two years later he underwent surgery to correct an enlarged aortic root; the surgery thank God was a total success but less than a year later Hoiberg announced his retirement.

He remained close to the court; for that, the person who he gives credit for that is Carol, who encouraged him to get a coaching job when the position was open at Iowa State, where coach T.J.Otzelberger served as his assistant.
